“We’ve still got Adebayor, and Sandro will be like a new signing!”
Proof if proof were needed that a well-timed bit of agent agitating = £££, Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that the club are currently ensconced in talks with Gareth Bale over at new contract at White Hart Lane in a bid to stop Real Madrid loitering with intent.
In a flurry of acronyms, AVB told the BBC: “There was contact between the club and his agent last year and there is ongoing contact between the club and his agent. Talks are ongoing but that doesn’t mean there is an agreement.”
Eeep. Nothing concrete yet.
Most of the papers seem to think that Spurs are trying to cobble together a “double yer money” deal for Bale, inflating his wages from £75,000-a-week up to somewhere between £150-170,000-a-week, with Spanish rag AS reporting that Daniel Levy will only listen to bids above and beyond £100million for the Welsh winger.
This is getting silly now.
