The coming transfer window could see Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy sacrifice some of their principles to take Tottenham Hotspur to the next level.
Whilst there’s no question the Lilywhites have progressed almost exponentially under the Argentine’s leadership whilst working with limited financial resources, they’ve now reached a point where they have to make big signings to improve a talented side and offer big wages to keep the current cohort in tact.
Thus, the idea of Spurs cashing in on a few players to raise funds has been discussed in FFC Towers in recent weeks, with Eric Dier emerging as a potential candidate amid reported interest from Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The England international has featured frequently throughout the campaign but struggled to replicate his level of form from last term and £40million, which United are reportedly prepared to pay, could go a long way at White Hart Lane this summer.
With that in mind, we asked Spurs fans earlier this week whether their club should cash in on Dier, but the result of our poll was a resounding no – with 73% voting against such a transfer deal. Dier may have struggled for form at times this season, but he’s clearly still well-liked by the White Hart Lane faithful.
