Manchester City want to outbid Real Madrid with a jaw dropping world record bid for the latest big young thing from Monaco, while Chelsea are trying to buy three more superstars to add to the three they’ve already bought, and Spurs, well, they’ve sold Kyle Walker.
Of course, though, Spurs are not, repeat, not, a selling club anymore.
Spurs are off to Wembley where they cannot hardly win a game, and we are all supposed to be looking forward to a new season to build on a second placed finish last season.
Cue more laughter!
Our chairman says today that all their rivals are splashing the cash and it’s unsustainable, despite the fact that the Premier League boss said it is sustainable, and with the last round of £8 BILLION worth of TV deals, likely to be topped very shortly….
Cue even more laughter!!
Only it’s not very funny right now to watch the big clubs spending big and building teams capable of making a big impact, not only domestically but also in the Champions league
Spurs are back in the Champions League but need one world class gobsmacking signing.
Cue the biggest laugh of all, because it ain’t going to happen.
So it is assured, as season of frustration where the team fail to move forward and in fact might be in danger of slipping so far back that the big guns Dele Alli and Harry Kane opt to review their decisions to stick at the Lane, just as Eric Dier would like move to Manchester United, and Walker pitched up at City saying he moved to win trophies.
Ah, The Lane. it’s no more, and just like Arsenal when they moved to The Emirates and suffered years of transfer neglect, it’s hard to believe the same isn’t happening right now with the other North London club.
The league table was worth looking at last season but here’s a ‘league table’ that is on line virtually everywhere right now.
Look away now if you’re squeamish…
Manchester City – £203.8m
Chelsea – £144m
Manchester United – £129.5m
Everton – £99.9m
Arsenal – £52.7m
Liverpool – £44.3m
Tottenham – £0
