When any transfer window approaches, the media look for clubs that are going to receive a major ‘war chest’ and invariably, Tottenham’s name always comes up. The reality however is usually a little different.
This is a club that were widely linked with Hulk – a man whose fee and wages are beyond most sides across the world. Instead, we picked up Louis Saha and twelve months later, the Hulk is picking up millions in an admittedly unhappy spell at Zenit St Petersburg.
With that in mind, is there really any mileage in the story linking Tottenham with Inter’s Wesley Sneijder? The papers and websites are full of the reports but is this another link where we need a reality check?
Another possibility could be Ajax midfielder Christian Eriksen who is quoted as saying,
‘I think that my future lies in England, Italy or Spain. These are the competitions that I like,’ Eriksen said in Metro.
‘I do not know what I will do in a few months’ time yet, but I want to leave my mark before moving on.’
In another, isolated story, it’s suggested that AVB has asked the Chairman for sizeable funds next month and it’s also claimed that relations between the two are tense.
If we were to speculate then the most likely move on Tottenham’s part is another approach for Joao Moutinho but as for Eriksen and, in particular, Sneijder, it seems like mere paper talk.
