“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.

    “This is getting silly now”

    Tell that to the Spanish ani.

    RM have effectively ruined football since 1955 by doing what UEFA now dislikes, now that PL clubs also do it.
    Of course, it was OK when RM, Inter, ACM, Juve, Barca, BM did it for decades but now English clubs(plus a few Russian and French ones) are doing it, it is not “fair” and in the meantime UEFA sit back and allow RM to tap up blatantly.
    This is why every NON real Madrid supporter hates the greatest cheating club in the world and Platini is a gutless hypocrite.

    @ Will how is buying players at a high price cheating? You sir are an ignorant fool if you think such a thing is cheating. Ask all the clubs that get paid millions of euros to sell their players to clubs like Madrid. HOW DARE THEY BUY PLAYERS TO WIN!!
