Even though that classic joke that Tottenham Hotspur never spend any money is still kind of true, Daniel Levy has finally opened his war chest in 2019/20. Well, sort of at least. Before this year’s transfer windows rolled in, Spurs’ record-holder was actually Davinson Sanchez with his £36m switch from Ajax in 2017/18.
And while £36m is still a decent sum, it still pales in comparison with transfers of the modern age. Not only that but a year before Sanchez, Spurs had bought Moussa Sissoko from Newcastle for £31.5m. Once again, nothing really spectacular.
Still, 2019/20 was different in many ways. Not only did they finally break the record by bringing Tanguy Ndombele from Olympique Lyon for £54m but the signings of Steven Bergwijn for £27m and Giovani Lo Celso for £28.8m are now their fourth and third-biggest transfers respectively. The latter’s, of course, is on the books for 2020/21 but still counts.
As far as departures are concerned, Gareth Bale’s record-breaking £90.9m move to Real Madrid still takes the cake and, if we’re being completely honest, it’s likely to stay that way for a while. Unless the Galacticos, or someone else, come knocking for a certain Harry Kane in the not so distant future…
Even though Ndombele is still trying to find his footing at Spurs, his transfer was huge simply because it broke the club’s record as Daniel Levy finally decided to spend a little. Of course, when it comes to most famous transfers, the arrival of Gareth Bale from Southampton for £13.2m in 2007 was a true turning point for the club. Well, at least after a while since the Welshman’s start to his Spurs career was a mess, to say the least.
But not only did he mark a great era at the club but he also made them a fortune following his transfer to Real Madrid. But there have been a number of impactful signings throughout the years and we have to mention the likes of Luka Modric, who arrived from Dinamo Zagreb in 2008 and then also joined Los Blancos later on, and the illustrious Teddy Sheringham who arrived back in 1992.
Of course, they are not nearly the only ones as Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen are definitely worthy of a mention and who could forget Robbie Keane, Jurgen Klinsmann or Dimitar Berbatov? That’s quite a list, isn’t it?
