Tottenham will face alot of pressure to keep their star players with them European Giants target their players.
Tottenham had a quiet transfer window and was considered title contenders, but now things have changed drastically, they sit just six points behind league leaders Liverpool and two points behind City. Now they welcome Manchester United, who had four wins on the trot, after Jose’s exit. It is fair to say that the Tottenham faithful are daunted from the list of possibility in this season ’s transfer window, regardless of where they finish. the club will have a tough time to hold on to their best players.
Earlier in the start of the season, key players such as Erikson, Toby Alderweireld had made their decisions to not to sign a contract extension, however, Tottenham have triggered an extension clause till 2020, on the Belgian’s contract and with a release clause of 25 M. Meanwhile, Pochettino can still persuade the Danish play-maker to sign a long-term deal worth 150,000 from his current contract worth, which is just around 70,000. At present, Harry Kane’s new deal worth £200,000, Dele Alli is on £150,000 a week yet other players still earn considerably less than they would elsewhere.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as a player, has won trophies and he looks to do the same with his new managerial career. So far, everything has gone well under him. This week is a big test for the Danish man. Earlier this season Tottenham trashed United at Old Trafford.
On the other hand, Mauricio Pochettino is the premiere target for United. A man, with the dreams of winning the champions league and premier league, will be persuaded by United’s interest this summer. However, he signed a new contract this season, which ends in 2022. With the new stadium’s cost have skyrocketed from of £237m or 59% on the initial £400m, it will be interesting to see the chairman Daniel Lewy’s activities in this transfer window. Real’s strongly interested in signing Erikson, and also looking for the signature of Tottenham boss.
