Premier League club chairman delivers huge transfer blow to Real Madrid

Daniel Levy insisted that both Dele Alli and Harry Kane will still be at Tottenham come the beginning of next season

Tottenham have had a hit and miss first half of the season. They are in 5th position midway through the season in which they were expected to actually challenge for the title.

Tottenham’s two best performers from last season, Dele Alli and Harry Kane have had a contrasting season up until now. While Kane has carried on his goalscoring ways, Alli has not been as effective in the league. Although, he has delivered his best football in the Champions League, especially at Wembley against Real Madrid.

Harry Kane is among Florentino Perez’s priority targets with a forward line revamp on the horizon. Alli has also piqued the interest of several decision makers at the Bernabeu.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain too, have been linked with Kane and Alli respectively.

Now, Daniel Levy has shot down any possibility of the star duo leaving the club. Speaking to Sky Sports,  Levy confirmed that Tottenham doesn’t need to sell the English internationals to counter the costs of building a new stadium.

Daniel Levy said, “I’m 100 percent confident. Every single player that we want to keep, I can assure you will be playing for Tottenham Hotspur next season.”

Levy also conceded that it is difficult to get business done in the winter transfer window. Notably, Tottenham hasn’t been involved in any transfer this month. Neither has the north London outfit been linked with anyone.

“Mauricio’s strategy has always been that if an opportunity arises that he thinks can improve the squad then we will need to look at it, but January is always a very difficult window.”

Author’s Take

Daniel Levy is a great negotiator. He has dealt with big clubs throughout his career, as Tottenham has been a selling club for long now. Now that Spurs are looking to navigate into new territories by foraging into the upper echelons of European football, he would look to keep the club’s best players out of the predators’ clutches. There are few great players at Tottenham; Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld being the chief among them. Tottenham would do well to keep the squad’s core intact and will need to start winning trophies to appease the players as well as the fans.
