Tottenham’s audacious bid KO’d & £14m deal is no upgrade for Spurs – Best of THFC
There isn’t much happening at Tottenham Hotspur at this current juncture. In fact there’s been hardly any activity since the season ended last month. Jan Vertonghen’s protracted transfer continues to drag on, whilst Niko Kranjcar was bundled onto an aeroplane and shipped off to Dynamo Kiev without much fanfare. All in all its been a pretty bland start to the summer by Spurs’ standards. Things did hot up during the mid-part of this week when it was revealed United declared their intentions (once again!) to sign Luka Modric. The sunshine season wouldn’t be complete without a transfer saga to leave you tearing your hair out. At this rate the White Hart Lane faithful will be contemplating baldness if this is going to happen every year. However would Harry Redknapp be inclined to sell his star midfielder after missing out on the Champions League? If United willing to pay £35 million for the Croatian I have every faith saying that Redknapp will drive him to Manchester himself. The manager himself continues to sweat over his own future in North London as he waits to hear from chairman Daniel Levy over a new contract. One thinks Uncle ‘Arry deserves one more crack of the whip at getting Tottenham a seat on Europe’s elite table. Do you?
This week on FFC should Spurs give in to Redknapp’s contract demands and which England goalkeeper are they battling Southampton and Manchester City for?
