Spurs and Barcelona target? The biggest one horse race in history
Oh I don’t know I think Barca have a small chance, I know Daniel usually blows everyone out of the water on transfer fees and wages but we can’t assume he will always do that

When did unsubstantiated rumours get their own Spurs Chat threads? Surely one for the winter transfer wish list thread no?

Don't think we ever had a chance.
There's always a chance but we'd have had to make an offer Ajax couldn't refuse instead of the normal Levy lowball one. IMO it's a tactic that means we never get a clear run at decent players because other teams pitch in with better offers while Levy is haggling. We did get it over the line with Modric however but that was years ago.

If news came out that we had gotten a bid accepted then surely the big fish would be in.

I think it's par for the course that agents will be straight on the phone to tell other clubs what deal is on the table. Maybe that's a reason why Levy likes to leave things to the last minute but other clubs seem able to sign quality players without all the complexities we seem to endure with just about every signing. We faffed around for ages allegedly trying to sign Pereira and lo and behold, Leicester got him for a reasonable fee with no problem at all. Doesn't make sense sometimes.
