Transfer Balls: Spurs buy Jay Rodriguez for £5m less than Liverpool and Manchester City got him for
Transfer Balls: Can it be true that Spurs are ‘Tottenham Hotsplurge”, a club about to splash out £60m on three players? The Sun says it is:
With the transfer window open, Spurs fans reading the Sun‘s screamer would suppose the players are arriving now. Are they?
SPURS want to start a £60million mega-spree by landing Jay Rodriguez before tomorrow’s deadline.
Exciting stuff. They’re coming. It’s a “spree”:
Tottenham have asked Southampton about the England striker and also have their eyes on summer moves for French pair Yohan Cabaye and Aymeric Laporte.
They’re coming…in the summer (so long as no other clubs outbid Spurs and the players want to join them).
But what about Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez?
Rodriguez has been a long-term target for Liverpool and Manchester City but Spurs could step in and snatch him early. The 25-year-old’s contract runs out next season and Saints want to tie him to a long-term deal.
The Sun says Spurs will bid £15m for Rodriguez.
On January 10, the Daily Express said Arsenal wanted Rodriguez.
On July 13, the Daily Mail said Rodriguez was off to the Etihad:
Manchester City consider £20m bid for Jay Rodriguez amid interest in Southampton star from Liverpool and Tottenham
On January 23, the Liverpool Echo said Liverpool were looking to spend £20m on Rodriguez.
The Daily Mirror agreed.
So. The Sun‘s Spurs “splurge” ‘Transfer Exclusive” is utter balls…
