Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted that Daniel Levy has assured him the club does not have to raise money this summer and will only offload players they want to sell.
The transfer rumour mill has gone into overload over the past couple of weeks linking Hugo Lloris, Kyle Walker, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Dele Alli all with moves away from the club, but the boss has publicly stated that there will be no flash sale in order to raise funds for the new stadium.
In previous seasons we’ve seen the likes of Gareth Bale, Luka Modric, Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick frustratingly sold by the club rather than looking to build. However, it looks as if we’re finally going to strengthen ourselves rather than our competitors.
“I think because we are doing good things, the clubs with a lot of potential are focused on our players, on our talented players,” Pochettino said.
“But it is important, I told you, because my relationship with Daniel Levy is so close so far – you know the relationship between chairman and manager can change in a moment!
“But the good thing is we have the plan to try to improve and we will deliver it when we finish the season.
“The players that we want to keep, we will keep, because he said to me ‘we don’t need money’. If we sell some players it is because we want to sell some players.
“We will sell players because of the players we want to sign. For our fans, it is so clear that all the decisions we take are for the reason to try to improve the team, to try to be more competitive next season.”
