Spurs remain keen on Bayern Munich star and his contract demands are revealed
By Bruce Grove -

Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng remains a top transfer target for Tottenham ahead of next season.

The Lilywhites have struggled at the back for much of this campaign despite their best efforts to avoid that problem.

After landing Gareth Bale to make their attack more fearsome, Spurs looked to bring in a new defender for their then manager, Jose Mourinho.

His preference was Inter Milan’s Milan Skriniar and the Lilywhites tried to sign the Slovakian for him.

However, they couldn’t agree with his Italian team and they had to settle for Joe Rodon from Swansea.

Rodon has hardly improved the defence in this campaign and they are expected to add at least another defender when the transfer window reopens.

Boateng is one they are considering, according to Bild as he enters the free agency market.

The report says the former Germany international is considering offers from Spurs and other teams.

He wants a three-year deal from his next club and he is willing to take a pay cut to his current 12m euros per season wages.

Spurs will be getting a very experienced centre-back if they sign him, however, he isn’t getting any younger and might not offer them stability for the long term.

He also struggled in the Premier League earlier in his career when he played for Manchester City.

Toby is 32. Boateng is 32. So if the story of us being interested in him is true, are we replacing one 32 year old with another or are we proposing our central defensive pairing consists of two 32 year olds who lack pace?

This has got to be someone using us to drum up interest in their player aaagain, older than Toby always had a mistake in him and would probably want big money….no sense

Free. Levys favourite price.

Another cast of, has been who didn’t cut it in England in his prime. This would be idiocy…..so it’ll probably happen seeing as the club in run by footballing idiots.

I’m am so beyond sick of VAR….it’s making betting a nightmare let alone ruining the sport in general. You tick off one on the slip, and 5 minutes later the effin goal has vanished. P$sstake

Boateng to Tottenham in a parallel universe maybe but not in the world I live in.

Sergio Ramos as his partner while you’re at it.

Rodon may as well have been loaned out all season playing Championship football, what a waste of a shirt number he’s been.

Totally underused IMO, no real game sharpness thanks to poor squad management, missed out on the Europa squad thanks to clueless recruitment tactics (surprise surprise!), Did he play in the league cup or FA cup games? All in all a complete shambles. Hope he comes good, the signs are there but apparently Dier is better hahahaha
