Watch Breaking Bridgey: Now Sky Sports believe Spurs want two Everton players

By Harry Hotspur -

Michael Bridge is a very well-connected chap and this lunchtime the Sky Sports presenter has what we can only call a bombshell, if only on the grounds that this now adds a whole new flavour to the ‘Richarlison to Tottenham tale.

Anthony Gordon has been revealed as the second man in what could be a multibuy deal between Spurs and Everton.

Attacking midfielder Gordon is a versatile 21-year-old who clocked up a lot of minutes for the Toffees last season. Perhaps as importantly, his addition would aid Antonio Conte’s ‘home-grown quotient’ numbers.

If we don’t blow most of that £150m I’ll be disappointed, though I’m sure some fans will put it down to shrewdness

Change of subject slightly but has Harry got any views on Bale deciding not to play through a cold muddy autumn, for the club he supported as a kid, to get fit for the World Cup (and ‘pay the goodwill forward’)

But.. for some reason heads off to a mega rich contract playing tele tubby football across the pond in suntan land. Don’t get the logic of it myself.

Somewhat churlish and frankly beneath you. He’s won 5 CLS and 3 LA Liga titles with RM. Pretty good going for the boy from Cardiff. I don’t really blame him for losing interest in football but he gives his all when he plays for Wales and I’ll always remember his performances for Spurs.

He was clearly playing to keep himself free from injury so he could play for Wales, despite all that I thought the 10 goals were a better contribution than any of the other overrated forwards on our books at the time, outside of Kane and Son. It was a Levy brainwave (the promo vid the club did when he signed was atrocious) , and seeing as how little the worm pays the squad anyway I would never concern myself with the club’s wage contribution. the money can always be found, strangely enough!

But yeah, he plays with a cigar on these days. Keep well away…

A lot of players that play at a high level when younger seem to suffer either physical or mental burn-out. He was so quick when he first broke though that a player like that was always likely to develop injuries later on. I also think being in the Madrid ‘goldfish bowl’ probably led him to stop enjoying the game in the same way. I don’t have any sympathy though, he wanted the move and stayed on a considerable time there. Madrid fans can be a horrible bunch once they turn on a player, great club but their fans always regard it as a ‘privilege’ to play for Madrid to the point where they can’t see beyond that.

Bale’s priorities are clearly Wales, golf, family and then club football in that order so moving to LA makes perfect sense end of.

The logic is when the MLS season finishes and his ability to play in a league where he can say fit enough for a world Cup.
Easy option to retire without looking like a complete ……. after the WC if he wants.

Yes, it’s a smart decision by Bale. Timing of the season, ability to get fit without having to go balls out risking injury, all while picking up a nice paycheck and living in a great climate with fantastic golfing, surfing, skiing, and anything else you might want to do. The guy has nothing left to prove in club football, he’s the most successful British footballer to ever walk the earth. Love him or hate him, he’s the best your sodden isle has produced, despite sepia toned nostalgia for olden days having convinced many people otherwise.

Were in your wildest dreams did you hear or think bale ever wanted to come back to spurs, did you read it on some blog on FB. according to the BBC his agent was having talks with Cardiff but they just could not afford the wages he was asking so of he goes to the good old USA .

Ha ..Gordon becomes the reason we don’t sign Richarlison..Gordon is one of the few players that gives Everton fans hope..no chance.
Just need to add the other thing that should bring Everton fans hope in Winky ..the Levy Tubby ..he is exactly what they need.

For information purpose, Levy has been successful in the past. Not that I agree with it, but like I have said in the past. The valuation of Richarlison did not make sense. Now with that informsation Everton is adding the extra $15M to ensure they get the $35M which would be just about what he is worth. Loceslo had that Clause with PSG and Levy did take him on loan to circumvent paying more. Gordon is talented, but does not have that kind of clause to back up suitor. A combination of players swap to begin negotiations is not a bad thing. Both clubs can get what they want which is giving away Winks and Moura to get pieces for Conte puzzle. My only reservation is if Paratici or Levy at the table.

Everton and Spurs never win any trophies anymore, so perfect transfer bedfellows. Let’s do some transfer business together and both improve, not one iota. Indicative of where we still are under ENIC…

I like Gordon who made forty appearances for Everton last season. He is everything Jack Clarke is not but he is an Evertonian and I can’t see them selling him to us. Again, this overcomplication with Everton with attempts to sell Winks and Moura by Spurs, stinks of Levy’s involvement and I repeat that he has now become involved in our transfer negotiations. Instead of getting deals over the line as other clubs manage to do, Levy draws every deal out until the selling club wants to do business with anybody else. We shall see but we have not managed to get our centre back target, HK back up, RB back up or AM signing. Neither have we managed to shift any deadwood apart from C-C-V.

Apparently Everton want to sell Richarlison for under £40 mil so they don’t have to give Watford a cut. How can they do that yet still sell the player for what he is worth? Maybe £39mil plus a makeweight player (or two). A dodging and diving deal that is right up ‘Arthur Daley Levy’s street.

Plus Everton gotta get some cash in before July 1st for FFP reasons.

It’s a perfect storm that our little Fagin is just made for (he just wants to pick a scouser pocket or two)

Not sure about the Gordon part… but I can see the Richarlison deal going ahead this week.

Interesting about Watford. I’m sure Levy is involved in these shenanigans, it smells of him. He better hope Everton don’t find an investor before the deadline like Villa did when he bid for Grealish

Only Chelsea going to pay $60M for a player that is worth about $35M. I do think for Spurs they should not be involve with Everton politics. 10M over 5 years is a nice insurance policy for Harry twisted ankle.

So we are led to believe Everton, having barely avoided the drop, are poised to sell their 2 best players, replacing them with Winky and cash which they can’t spend? Sure, why not?

which basically translates to….”Spurs sign Gordon in a swap deal with Winks”….”while Richarlison joins Chelsea” 🙄

I expect there is some horse trading to be done with the Toffees bearing in mind their FFP issues, they allegedly want Winks and have other obligations to us regarding Dele.

Keeping Alli off a football pitch is Everton’s obligation to football.
