Spurs believe the sale of Harry Kane will help them in signing these 2 emerging players.
It seems the next 6 months will a time of nervousness for Tottenham Hotspurs fan. They will be facing an energetic Borussia Dortmund in February. The North London club will have it’s own stadium. It will be followed by the future of Mauricio Pochettino as Manchester United may lure to Old Trafford. The future of Alderwiereld and Eriksen will also have a solution in summer. It seems Spurs already eyeing a £107m double swoop with £310m Kane sale.
Reports in England claim Real want to sign Harry Kane ‘to rejuvenate their team’. The Spanish club has identified the need for ‘an established but still young striker’, and the Tottenham forward is one of the few that truly fits the bill. Tottenham Hotspur’s response to this apparent interest is pretty admirable. They ‘have put a huge £310million price tag on the striker’.

How will Tottenham spend that windfall? By matching whatever offer Ajax receive for Frenkie de Jong. Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona both want the young midfielder, and are willing to pay around £67m for him. Manchester City have seemingly dropped out of the race altogether. ‘Ajax will sell De Jong to the highest bidder,’ the Daily Express tells us, ‘so Daniel Levy will have to break Tottenham Hotspurs’s transfer record to get him on board.’
They do say the signing will be funded by the sale of Christian Eriksen to Real for £100m. A lot of money swirling for Tottenham. Whoever Tottenham do sell, if indeed they do sell – David Brooks would be a rather suitable signing. Given the plausibility of this merry-go-round, Bournemouth have caught on too.
Reports say they ‘will offer’ the midfielder ‘a huge pay rise’ to keep him on the south coast. Eddie Howe ‘wants to reward the exciting midfielder’ (and keep him too), so the club ‘are willing to more than double’ his current wages to around £50,000.
That will disappoint not only Tottenham but Manchester United too. The two giants would happily pay around £40million to take Brooks on.
It seems to a big plan with a lot of ifs. It seems Real Madrid would prefer Icardi or Piatek before turning to Kane. Also, De Jong might prefer a move to Spain or France given their performance on Champions League. The plan has a lot of drawbacks and could backfire as well if Pochettino decides to leave Tottenham by the end of the season.
