Tevez To Spurs? Don’t Be Daft..But..By: Robert Reed | January 12th, 2012
According to Sky Sports, AC Milan have failed in their attempt to bring Carlos Tevez to the club. It is thought that a last try at reaching agreement with Manchester City has failed, and the deal is more or less dead.
Inter Milan were rumoured to be interested a while back, but it’s thought that was just mischief making to cause a bit of aggro for their local rivals.
Although moneybags PSG were reportedly interested at one point, they haven’t followed up on it. One feels that was just newspaper talk anyway.
So there you go then. He’ll be on his way to us! Nobody else wants him, we can afford £200,000 a week wages and Man City will be just aching to gift another world class forward to one of their closest rivals for the title.
OK, so it ain’t gonna happen. But if it did?
Breaking the bank with a huge signing on fee to supplement more reasonable wages for a player of Tezez’s calibre would make Spurs an incredibly tempting bet for the title. It would have to be a very serious offer, the type which only reckless chairmen make often, but as a one off it would be do-able.
Now I certainly don’t envisage Tevez joining Spurs at all, I’m not ten years old. But he’s a prime example of the kind of big, big signing which would be worth the money to deliver a title to the lane for the first time since ‘61. If we qualify for the Champions League next season as we certainly should, don’t expect us to compete on two fronts and have another tilt at the title. This is a golden opportunity which could feasibly not come around for another ten/twenty years.
We should go for it and throw caution to the wind, just this once. To dare is to do!
