Transfer Talk: Trippier, Lloris, Bale, Shaquiri, Clarke


Napoli are trying to sell right-back Elseid Hysaj to make way for Kieran Trippier according to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.

PSG are in the market for a new goalkeeper and it is suggested they are interested in Hugo Lloris once again. He has just won a World Cup and is now in the UEFA Champions League Final, there is no reason for him to leave, especially with French football being a one-team league.

Lloris gave his World Cup trophy to Mauricio Pochettino as a thank you and shows the bond between the two. In Pochettino, Lloris found a soulmate at Tottenham which is why he has never had the intention of leaving.

Spanish sports newspaper AS reports that Real Madrid does not want to loan any players out this window, they want the money from sales of unwanted players like Gareth Bale and Dani Ceballos to help fund all the purchases they want as they look to rebuild the squad for Zinidine Zidane.

The Sat suggest Liverpool would sell Xherdan Shaquiri if the right offer came in. He has a history of not lasting at his clubs. Bayern Munich got rid of him and so did Inter Miln after a season.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Tottenham has been told to pay £20 million for 18-year-old (19 in November) Leeds United winger Jack Clarke. You will have seen in many places suggestions that Tottenham has bid £10 million.

What happens is, one club unofficially sounds out an agent who has a rough figure in mind of what his client is worth and another figure that might secure his services after discussing it with the club selling the player. Now when a club has no wish to sell that is a guesswork figure, as it hasn't been discussed.

A buying club has their own valuation of the player and what they want to pay. Transfer fees are not paid in one lump sum, but over the term of a contract, so if a player signs for 5 years, you pay 5 annual installments, the first being an agreed upfront figure.

The selling club wants the whole amount to be guaranteed, in other words without bonuses/performance-related add-ons, whereas the buying club would prefer as much as possible to be add-ons.

What can happen is, that some of the add-ons can be ones that are certain to be achieved. If you included an add-on that he turned up for work for a week, for instance, that would be guaranteed to happen, thus the selling club would be guaranteed that element of any add-ons fees.

Why do things that complicated way? Because of accountancy and tax implications for the financial year.

The figures you see quoted in the press can be with or without add-ins, usually, our press includes add-ons when they give a fee, which is not a true reflection of what is actually paid.

For instance, there might be a clause that a certain amount is paid if the club wins the UEFA Champions League, so until a club does while that player is at the club and within the years of the initial contract agreed, then that add-on is not payable.

Usually, the foreign press state transfer fees without add-ons so a discrepancy, especially for selling players from a Premier League club.

Bale wages around £690,000

Gareth Bales wages take him out of Spurs price range


The story from the Sun over Gareth Bale is an interesting one.

There is news in Spain that there has been a complete breakdown between Gareth Bale and Zinidine Zidane, they didn't see eye to eye before so the return of the Frenchman wasn't likely to help the former Spurs man's position.

Bale wants to stay and end his carer at Real Madrid, as we know it's his dream club.

The Sun reports that Tottenham have been offered Gareth Bale on loan for £9.98m (€11.5m) and that his salary is £607,578-a-week (€700,000), with bonuses around £690,000 (€790,000). That we would look to be subsidized by Real Madrid if such a deal were to take place.

This is what is generally reported, although what I have heard is that Real Madrid wants a club to cover his entire wages, including bonuses which is a substantial package way beyond our means.

Real Madrid have told Bale to find another club. Zidame wants Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to replace him. The fee for that deal would be in the region of £73.80 million (€85m) and the suggestion is that Spurs would pay £260,391-a-week (€300,000).

Jonathan Barnett, his agent, was interviewed by Sky and he told them that Zidane does not think Gareth Bale is one of the top 3 or 4 players in the world, which Barnett does. The Welshman is under contract until 2022 and Barnett confirmed he is quite happy to stay.

That means Bale can turn down moves and Real Madrid may have to be helpful to buying clubs to sell him. Remember Spurs have a first option on him and any deal Real Madrid agree with any club, the same deal has to be offered to Tottenham who would have first choice whether to sign him on those terms.

Obviously, wages with individual teams is an entirely different matter.

The 29-year-old (30 in July) is under contract until 2022 and a season-long loan spell would reduce his fee with a year off that contract.

Le Parisien report that PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique has is watching the situation of Gareth Bale, Isco and Toni Kroos and that he would like to bring all three to the French champions.

Transfer Talk - Bale, Chiesa and Perotti

Gareth Bale is being tracked by Bayern Munich

Gareth Bale

Bayern Munich are taking an interest in 28-year-old (29 in July) Welsh international Gareth Bale, who has yet to discuss his situation with Real Madrid. He wants to be playing football every week and will seek assurances that that is going to happen under new Head Coach Julen Lopetegui.

If he doesn't receive those assurances he will look to leave, but his preference is to stay and play every week.

Federico Chiesa

Tottenham, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Napoli are all tracking the situation of 20-year-old (21in October) Italian international Federico Chiesa. Serie A side Fiorentina do not want to lose the rising star, they see him as part of a ream to make a push for European football next season.

The right winger has 3 Italian caps and scored 6 goals with 9 assists in 38 appearances this season. His contract runs until 2022.

Diego Perotti

Argentine attacker Diego Perotti is on the Tottenham radar as the club search for a wide attacker. The 29-year-old (30 in July) left winger has a contract until 2021 and scored 8 goals with 5 assists from 35 games. Unless we were considering converting him into a striker, he would appear to be in the wrong age range for us. That makes you question the story.

THBN - The magnificent new Spurs stadium taking shape

Gareth Bale

Spanish outlet and standing joke Don Balon have comically suggested that Real Madrid has now offered Tottenham Gareth Bale as a swap for Christian Eriksen to spite Barcelona and Manchester United, this after they suggested that Real Madrid has asked Gareth Bale's agent to negotiate for Mauricio Pochettino, something that was flatly denied.

Don Balon are a site who simply make up stories and are at gutter press level, the Spanish version of the Sun. They are not a credible source.

Morgan Sanson

News from France that Marseille have set their price for 23-year-old (24 in August) central midfielder Morgan Sanson. Spurs are looking at the former French Under-21 player as a replacement for Mousa Dembele.

Sanson scored 12 goals and had 3 assists in 53 games this season and has had a £26.45 million (€30m) price put on his head, coincidentally the same price we are looking to get for Dembele. The player's agent has confirmed Spurs interest.

New Stadium Naming Rights

Daniel Levy was reportedly asking £400 million (€454m) for naming rights to the new stadium. While no deal has been signed, Tottenham's position has been strengthened with a third successive season in the UEFA Champions League.

Our profile is growing. We have a new stadium, now that will be on the global stage through the Champions League and the interest that will generate. Far from having to reduce the figure we are seeking, we now are in a far stronger bargaining position.

As for the new kit, well that will probably be released when the new club shop opens in July, that would seem the most commercially viable time to do so and would help maximise exposure for the club.

Bale Unwanted At Real Madrid and Aurier Still A Concern


Gareth Bale

Marca say Real Madrid are set to offload Gareth Bale this summer after too many injuries have left him sat on the bench once more. Zinidine Zidane no longer seems to have any trust in him and President Florentino Pérez is thought to be looking at a major overhaul after a disastrous season that sees them 14 points behind Barcelona, 7 points behind Atlético Madrid and just 2 points ahead of Valencia. They are also out of the Spanish Cup.

While we have the option to match any offer, his wages are £13.28 million annually (that's just over £250,000-a-week).

I do believe a sponsor might be interested, it would be great publicity for Nike if Bale returned home to Spurs and he would make a difference to commercial income.

However, other players would all then want a wage increase, which at the present time we wouldn't be able to afford, have to generate the income first. Speculate to accumulate isn't a viable option for the majority of football clubs. Without the income you can't continue to afford the wages and you have to sell. Now you are on a downward spiral that it's difficult to get out of, now your club is going backwards, not forwards and it is difficult to attract players again when there are other options.

Real Madrid Set To Dispense With Bale

MARCA is a Spanish national daily sport newspaper owned by Unidad Editorial. The newspaper focuses primarily on football, in particular the day-to-day activities of Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid and Rayo Vallecano - Wikipedia.

Serge Aurier


After watching him give away a needless penalty against Real Madrid, a needless penalty against Juventus and getting himself sent-off, the fears over Aurier haven't gone away.

Kieran Trippier is arguably the best crosser of a ball, as a full-back, in the Premier League, no other crosses it so accurately on the volley so often. It is a killer ball if you get it right as the defence don't have time to set themselves.

For the UEFA Champions League second leg against Juventus Aurier is suspended so Trippier will be starting. He isn't as quick as Aurier and Douglas Costa is lightening as we saw from the first leg and tricky too. We will have to very careful there.

Gareth Bale, Diving Stats, Toby Alderweireld, plus the Spurs Besiktas comparison from a Turkish journalists perspective


His days at Real Madrid look numbered and his demeanour against PSG was not good, as AS explained in their piece on him. Spurs have first refusal of his services, meaning we get told of any offer and are given the opportunity to match it.Wages are a different world altogether though, but would a sponsor want to be involved with a marquee signing in the season we move back into our own stadium?

Gareth Bale


Liverpool fans are all complaining about diving on Twitter. It was a clear penalty on Sunday so perhaps Liverpool fans should look at the statistics produced by Squawka.

Most Yellow Cards For Diving Since 2011/12

  • Chelsea 24
  • Liverpool 22
  • Sunderland 21
  • Manchester City 17
  • Tottenham Hotspur 17
  • Manchester United 15


Roberto Martínez Montoliu is a Spanish football coach and former professional player. Martínez is the manager of the Belgium national team and was previously at Everton, Wigan Athletic and Swansea City.

He spoke tn HLN Sport and revealed he had spoken to Spurs centre-back Toby Alderweireld over his fitness.
“I have recently had a good conversation with Toby Alderweireld. I’m happy that Spurs take their time and don’t rush him back. But of course Toby would have liked to have played against Juventus. (Smiles) His situation will need time.”


An interesting article from BirGün, an Istanbul-based Turkish left-wing daily newspaper, in which the columnist takes a look at the how Spurs are run with growth in mind and how Besiktas is run with the same aim, but he suggests, not as successfully.

He makes the comparison because both are playing Grade A sides in Europe, Besiktas play Bayern Munich today and we drew with Juventus in Turin 2-2 last week..

The reporter suggests Harry Kane is valued at €120 (£105.82 million at today's rate).

Christian Eriksen is valued at €70m (£61.72 million at today's rate).

Dele Alli is valued at €80m (£70.53 million at today's rate).

Eric Dier is valued at €40m (£35.27 million at today's rate).

Purchase cost of the four players: €29.63 million (£26.12 million at today's rate).
Current value of the four players: €310 million (£273.30 million at today's rate).

You'll need to Google translate the article but it's a worthwhile read. It is always good to read views from other countries who have a different perspective on things and not just blindly follow what our press write. I have grown very tired of our press.

Spurs talking with Real Madrid over Bale

8:00 am


There is a suggestion that Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have met and have discussed Gareth Bale together with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli.

There is talk that Real Madrid would prefer to sell 28-year-old (29 next July) Gareth Bale to Spurs, if, and it's a big if, and when they decide to sell him. Why would they want to do a deal with Tottenham instead of the greater fee they could get from Manchester United?

That's simple, they want first option on Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli, should they move for them at the end of the season. Eriksen we know has ambition and it took a long time to get him to sign his last contract extension. The rumours coming out of the club last summer were that he would only be here for another year.

Spurs have made enquiries and asked for confirmation of Gareth Bale's situation. That is leading to quiet informal talks to explore possibilities, one of which is that Real Madrid would contribute to his wages.

Welshman Bale wants to stay at Real Madrid, but he has had a lot of injuries and they do want Kylian Mbappe who isn't going to be cheap. It is speculative but the club are looking at it seriously as he is a marketing tool as well as a tremendous footballer who could be just the star to help our young team.

Who better to learn from than a man who has been there are done it, a man with the mental approach that drives him to achieve his goals.

2 Spurs stars in Europe Top 10 MVP - Top 25 list

2:30 pm



Tottenham retain two players in the top ten (Europe Top 10 MVP) of the CIES Football Observatory transfer value rankings this week, Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

An explanation taken from the CIES website tells us that they have undertaken this exercise since 2012 and use a scientific formula that includes 'multiple variables on player performance'. They work by matching historical data on deals and do not include a subjective human element. Since 2013 their accuracy between prediction and actual transfer fee has seen 80% accuracy.

I think you'll agree that is a pretty decent benchmark to place player valuations against. Contract length is taken into account, minutes played, goals scored, age and many other factors. A full explanation can be found here.

Potential Transfer Values Top 12

The values are all in Euros and as you can see Harry Kane in the 6th most valuable player in Europe this week while Dele Alli is the 9th most valuable player.

Europe Top 10 MVP
6th - Harry Kane - £125.61 million (€139.2m - AUS$206.7m - US$163.9m)
9th - Dele Alli -  £99.71 million (€110.5m - AUS$164.08m - US$130.1m)

The figures for numbers 13 to 25 from the Top 5 European Leagues are below.

Gareth Bale has been talked about a lot and he is rated as the 14th moist valuable player in Europe with the press speculating that Real Madrid could use him to raise cash for their top target 18-year-old (19 in December) Kylian Mbappe, who isn't rated in the top 100 players.

Europe Top 25 MVP
14th - Gareth Bale - £75.8 million (€84m - AUS$124.73m - US$98.9m)

Room mates Walcott and Bale

9:34 am
Walcott names Bale third best player in the world

Theo Walcott has named his old mate Gareth Bale as the third best player in the world. They are the same age, were at Southampton together and were room mates.

"If I’m being honest I didn’t think he’d be, for me now, the third best player in the world. It’s just my opinion. 
"When you think he’s a left-back and kept moving up and up and now can obviously play at No.10, left-wing, right-wing and some of the goals he scores. He’s proving me wrong, that’s for sure. 
"We’re the same age. We used to live in the same room together at the lodge at Southampton. We loved messing about."

What he should have added, was look at us now, he is at Real Madrid and I am stuck as a bit-part player at Arsenal.

The difference in the two rather demonstrates the mentality it takes to be a winner, Gareth Bale strove to add to his game all the time, he didn't make excuses, he came up with a new free-kick whereas Walcott was happy at the level he was at.

It takes dedication to get to the top, you have to be internally driven or you simply won't get there, Bale was, Walcott wasn't.

Two English teams may be interested in Gareth Bale, actually there are 20 Premier League clubs interested in him, none will sign him though.

The Daily Express amongst others want to suggest Manchester United and Chelsea are willing to pay £171.88 million (€200n - AUS$283.83m - US$214.78m) for him and they may be, but there is still no chance of signing him.

The rag suggest Gareth Bale is not happy with Cristiano Ronaldo staying at Real Madrid because he wants to be the leader of the team. That is complete nonsense, Gareth Bale wants to play for Real Madrid and is living his boyhood dream doing so. He has no intention to leave whatsoever and Real Madrid have absolutely no intention of selling him either.

That is the constant message that comes from Spain, but our press ignore that though, it doesn't fit their agenda. Chelsea and Man United supporters can dream, but it is pure fantasy. Manchester United don't even challenge anymore and are not guaranteed the UEFA Champions League football they once were which would be a prerequisite for such a worldwide popular player.

Gareth Bale £450m release clause

When it comes to a player like Gareth Bale it is not simply the football you have to take into account, it is the fact that he is one of the most marketable players on the planet and that makes his price exorbitant.

His global appeal, he is huge in Asia, is why Real Madrid were prepared to pay a world record transfer fee for him when they signed him from us, which he immediately repaid by scoring decisive goals that won and helped win the Copa del Rey and UEFA Champions League.

It is as much for his commercial value as his footballing value that Real Madrid have put a £450-milliom release clause in his contract according to the Sun.

The 27-year-old has made it clear he wants to stay at Real Madrid for the rest of his career.

Alvaro Morata, Paul Pogba and Gareth Bale

10:30 pm


Following on from yesterdays howler from Sky Sports who said Juventus striker Alvaro Morata had already re-joined Real madrid comes news that despite Juventus being told Real madrid will invoke the buy-back clause that he could still stay at Juventus if Real Madrid continue their pursuit of Paul Pogba.

He is not for sale and Real Madrid will get a swifty no, but we all know Real Madrid don't take any notice of that and that they need to do their transfer business for the next two seasons during this window. If Real madrid manage to turn Pogba's head and they have not met his wage demands then part of the deal will be that Morata stays at Juventus.

It is not a cut and dried picture. It didn't take long for a British paper to suggest that talks had already started  by Chelsea to bring Morata to Stamford Bridge. Dout very much that there has been a meeting between the two clubs myself.

On th subject of Real Madrid, the patently obvious was being revealed in the British press, that Gareth Bale would be staying at Real Madrid, possibly for life and that he would be the new face of the club. You don't pay for one of the top marketing brands in football and don't then use that asset. He is going to increasingly take over from Cristiano Ronaldo, who let's face it, can't go on forever. The marketing men will have planned ahead and Gareth Bale is a part of that.

There was never any chance of him going to Manchester United or any other club. It was an interesting statistic i the first-half of the Portugal draw, Ronaldo hadn't scored in 60 free-kicks he had taken for Portugal, Bale of course became only the second player to score from two free-kicks. One is in the ascendency right now and one is in the doldrums. How he scored his goals last night I don't know, I turned it over, was rather boring to watch.

Bale to Man U a total non-starter

Transfer Talk has an opinion that uses common sense and logic as opposed to the fanciful conjecture of the British press. Transfer Talk takes a look at the Gareth Bale to Manchester United rubbish.

The press are day dreaming as are Manchester United. They want people to think there is the remotest possibility that Manchester United could buy Gareth Bale for £120 milion, they can't.

As any Spurs fan can tell them he dream is to play for Real madrid. He is in a side that wins the UEFA Champions Lague, he has won it twice now. He is a marketing man's dream, the world population love him, they can't get enough of him.

He is worth a fortune to Real Madrid off the pitch as well as on it. He is the future of their marketing. At the moment Cristiano Ronaldo is the cornerstone of Real Madrid and sponsorship deals, that is a mantle that Gareth Bale will be taking over for them. They have no intention of letting him go and he has no intention of leaving.

We are not talking about a player playing for Stoke City here, a player looking for a move to a bigger club, he is already at the world's number one club, sotty to United fans but Real Madrid tops Man United in my book and always will. They buy and assemble the Galacticos, something Manchester United wanted to do I believe a couple of years ago. They hadn't found a manager who could handle that until perhaps now.

First step is to get back in the Champions League though, do they seriously think a Champions League winner will move to a side who can't provide Champions League football? That is delusion. Manchester United have only qualified for the Champions League once in last three seasons, demonstrating what a truly great manager Sir Alex Ferguson was, clearly the best the Premier League has seen.

Manchester United can dream all they like, Gareth Bale to Manchester United is simply is a non-starter.

Bale: I went to Real Madrid to win the Champions League

Gareth Bale fulfilled his boyhood dream when he was transferred to Real Madrid in a world record fee, but merely playing for them was not enough. He wanted to run out in the all white and win the Champions League with them.

Of course, he has already done that and even scored the goal that put Real Madrid ahead in the 110th minute. Winning once though is not enough at Real Madrid, the culture is to keep winning and that is Gareth Bale's aim.

The 2016 final is going to be a repeat of the 2014 final Real Madrid vs Atletico Madrid after this week's semi-final results which saw last year's winners Bayern Munich and Manchester City knocked out.

"The reason I came to Real Madrid was to win Champions Leagues. I've got one already, and I have got a chance to win another.

"I feel I'm growing up. My Spanish is improving a lot and I am increasingly integrated into the team. Beginnings are always difficult, but I think the hardest times have passed and right now I feel better every [day]."

It was Bale's deflected cross that beat Manchester City 1-0 and Bale has also netted the winner in the last two La Liga games. He is happy at Real Madrid and the club are happy with him so there is no chance him leaving regardless of what Manchester United or Manchester City want.

Confirmed: Bale world record fee and instalment payments

12:30 pm
Gareth Bale's agent has spoken of his disappointment that his clients contract has been revealed which confirms that this is the genuine article. In the first part, I revealed that there was a first refusal option allowing Spurs to match any offers for him within 3 days.

It is not often you get the chance to look at a contract and see what type of clauses are actually inserted so it will be well worth reading the whole series and taking a read of the contract yourself. That may be a bit much in one go so I have broken it down into pieces.

Yesterday I revealed the first refusal option Bale has and if you missed that just click the link and you can read that article first. Spurs have first refusal on Bale

I'll take the opportunity to say thank you once again to everyone who clicks on an advert when they visit my site, that quick and simple action helps pay the bills, every little helps.

Real Madrid paid a world record £78 171 930 for Gareth Bale in the summer of 2013, that's £78.2-million (US$110.8m - AUS$160.5m - €101.7m at today's rates) exactly as the ITK at the time was saying.

Page One of the transfer agreement goes through the two clubs and the player, testifying who they are and the basic conditions for the transfer of registration to Real Madrid.

Page Two starts talking figures and sets out the payments Real Madrid must make to Tottenham each July. There is a lot of misconception from fans over instalment payments, especially with it being wrongly thought by some that we didn't have to pay the rest of the fee for Roberto Soldado if we sold him.

Quite how anyone can come to that conclusion is unclear, it would be impossible to run a business in those circumstances as the selling wouldn't know what income they were going to have and thus wouldn't be able to budget for transfer spending. Regardless of his future, we had to pay what we were contractually obliged to pay, in instalments, for him.

The same situation applies to Gareth Bale, if he were sold last year, for instance, Real Madrid would still owe us the rest of the money for him, it isn't suddenly cancelled. In fact, in this contract, the outstanding amount becomes immediately payable within 14 days. Such a clause is quite standard in contracts. That stipulation is at the top of page three which we'll look at in the next article.

It is no different to taking out a loan on a car, you have to pay the instalments or pay them off in a lump sum. Selling the car makes no difference, you still have the debt to pay.

That is the first two pages of a six-page contract so time to rest the brain for a while. In the next article in the series, we will take a look at more pages.
