While there aren’t that many new names being linked with a move to Spurs this summer, there are plenty of old stories being resurrected and the latest involves Emmanuel Adebayor. Once again however, it seems the transfer columnists just have to add a little embellishment, even if there is no substance or justification.
It’s getting more and more tiresome to read reports linking Luka Modric with a move away from Spurs but it’s even more irritating to see stories suggesting that Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United will only sell to us if our player of the year goes the other way.
Aside from Adebayor, rumours are now suggesting that Chelsea have joined in by offering Didier Drogba as part of the overall deal. The particular story suggests that a large sum of money together with the Ivorian international would be ‘too good to refuse’.
While not wanting to add to the Luka speculation, is there any player that is really that tempting when you take away our own best man? In this window, Spurs have been linked with Drogba, Adebayor and Berbatov and while throwing Luka into the mix may well be idle speculation, maybe it’s time to decide not to do business of any kind with these clubs?
