Picture the scene:
Somewhere among the queues of saddos waiting in line for hours at a recently-opened McDonald’s Drive-Thru in Herfordshire, Daniel Levy takes out the card marked ‘Tottenham transfer budget’ to pay for his Big Mac and Chicken McNuggets…and the card is declined.
It is a more plausible tale than some rumours being concocted during a global pandemic which is going to leave us powerless in the market. And after that, we just have hundreds of millions of pounds of stadium debt to contend with. So we aren’t going to be signing players like Ruben Neves any time soon.
Le10 Sport in France understands that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring the Wolves midfielder to Spurs and that we would be the Portugal international’s preferred destination for a move this summer.
Neves could conceivably get in any team in the Premier League and The Times wrote in 2018 that Wolves had put a £110m price tag on him.
These Spurs fans on Twitter know what I know but what Le10 Sport don’t seem to; we can’t even afford a McDonalds right now.
