Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Premier League midfielder Carlton Palmer is adamant Daniel Levy will not pay the necessary money needed to make Julian Nagelsmann the next Tottenham manager.
Tottenham are searching for a new man for the dugout following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, and that search seems to have taken them to RB Leipzig boss Nagelsmann.
However, according to Goal, it will cost the north London club €30m (£26m) to get the 33-year-old out of his Leipzig contract.
It would be a world-record fee for a manager, a fee Palmer cannot see Levy and Tottenham paying.
When asked by FFC whether he could see Daniel Levy paying that sort of money for Nagelsmann, the ex-Sheffield Wednesday star said:
“In a word, no. They’ve made their decision; they’re not going to do anything until the summer. I think they sacked Jose because they were thinking about getting him out anyhow and what would have made it difficult for them to get him out is if he had won the cup.
“I don’t think anything’s going to happen before the summer.“
Tottenham, however, may not be able to wait until the summer, with Bayern Munich having already seemingly made their move for Nagelsmann.
Whatever the case, that £26m Leipzig are said to be demanding looks like it could be a sticking point for Spurs.
