Mateo Musacchio fix

For those of you who want your daily Mateo Musacchio fix the word is we have our price and we are sticking to it, if that tales us all the way to the end of the window so be it. Villarreal want £13 million (€16.34m) for themselves, talk about having your cake and eat it.

Mateo Musacchio fix

Their cut is of £17 million (€21.36m) is £5.95 million (€7.48), if the agent dropped his share that would still only give them £11.05 million (€13.89m)! Greedy or what.

They bought the players cheaply because of third party ownership, 65% owned by former club and his agent, thus Villarreal only had to pay for 35% of the player. When it comes to selling they want more than their 35% share. They are insisting the agents gives up part of his player ownership profits, why should he.

All parties know what the player is worth, all parties agree what the player is worth, we are offering what the player is worth, Villarreal want a other peoples slice of the cake as well as their own. If they didn't want this situation they shouldn't have bought the player in this manner in the first place, but then it's the only way they can afford to build a team.

As I revealed last week they have already signed his replacement, who has now been unveiled hence papers now catching up with the story. The locals say he hasn't been offered a contract only that the club were supposedly thinking about it but money isn't the issue for the player, yes he'd like to come to us and double, treble his wages but he sees Spurs as a step up in grade.

He is training with the squad but not all the training sessions, he trains with the team in the mornings and does gym work in the afternoons so he is not taking a full part, which again suggests he is not part of their plans. He was pulled out of their 2-0 friendly win against Middlesborough on August 2nd and their 3-0 victory against Swamsea on Saturday August 9th.

They have another friendly on Thursday so it will be all eyes on the squad to see if he is involved or not.

Everyone wants a sale so it is a case of sit tight and wait for Villarreal to give, which they will have to do or be stuck with too many players and a wage bill they can't afford. Nobody else is interested so at the moment we have no competition and are in a strong position.

Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 24

Good morning and it's another spiffing day to be a proper positive Spurs fan during this exciting period of our carefully and meticulously planned evolution under Daniel Levy and ENIC. To further your excitement I have the Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 24 piece for you. I know, you can hardly contain yourself can you. The eternal question, will he get straight into the news or will be keep us waiting again with some brilliant in sight into life at and around Tottenham. I'm undecided on that one folks, as of yet there is no Spurs Chat piece here, but who knows something might occur and I'll come back to fill in the blank, take you off the main transfer route into a local route (railway terms). If you have topics you'd like me to talk about please leave them in the comments. They all go for moderation so I do read them all and post all the sensible ones, leaving out the odd abusive one from some Levy hating doss-house in Scotland. In the meantime I said I read all

Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 38

A very nice gesture and the sign of the caring culture there now is at Tottenham Hotspur. What a wonderful way to start the day, chatting to Spurs fans via the Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 38 article. It is a beautiful Sunday morning with the sun shining and temperatures expected to be high. The Open The two THBN backed players at 46/1 (Johnson) and 126/1 ( Bezuidenhout) e/w paying out on 8 places.

Summer Transfer Window Day 25

In Spurs Summer Transfer Window Day 25 we have a healthy Spurs Chat section about our club and it's brilliantly bright future thanks t the way it has been developed by Daniel Levy. You could argue that he is the best signing Spurs have ever made. Anyway this is the Tottenham Hotspur Blog News (THBN) take on Tottenham Hotspur Football Club. Alasdair Gold says he has heard (not from anyone at Spurs or with business knowledge he hasn't) that it’s ENIC's “peak time to sell the club.”  That is complete garbage, more likely that he has invented it. You do not sell something you have just pumped £150m into! Do you change the engine in your car right before you sell it? There is zero chance ENIC sell for a few years yet, they would certainly want to see the club winning trophies first for a start and an increase in commercial sponsorship. There is simply too much money coming into the Premier League to sell, hence the interest in Chelsea. What Alasdair is mistaking is that we are n
