The AVB to PSG rumours haven’t gone away just yet and in fact, they have simply intensified over the last 24 hours. Some reports go a stage further by forging the fairly obvious link that would take Gareth Bale to the cash rich French club alongside his manager – the only surprise is that somebody didn’t think of that one a little sooner.
Like most rumours of this, or any summer, no-one knows how much truth there is but it’s fair to say that Andre will continue to be hot property the longer he stays and impresses while at Spurs. For that reason alone, the Chairman should realise that this is the most critical pre-season for many years.
When Luka Modric first asked to leave the club in 2011, the club vowed to show the player their ambition with some big name purchases but we all know how that finished.
The summer of 2013 could be a bigger test for Daniel Levy and while the AVB to PSG stories still seem a little bizarre, this simply has to be the time for some big name arrivals in order to show ambition to both players and the coach.
