Are Tottenham about to pull off incredible double transfer?

Posted on June 15, 2013 by Random Spurs Supporter

Some will remember 1978 for a wonderful World Cup in Argentina when an exciting home side pulled off a sensational triumph, it was also the year of the ticker tape welcome for Argentina as they walked onto the field of play. 1978 for Tottenham fans was also the year when the club was promoted from the old second division following a year in exile from division 1, but perhaps equally important and as exciting was the transfer coup that Tottenham pulled off by signing 2 World Cup winners Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa. I was there when they made their entrance at Nottingham Forest and was stunned by the amount of travelling support for that first fixture. Nottingham was lit up by Sombreros and the ticker tape entrance afforded the Tottenham team.

35 years on and a World cup in South America is just a year away, this time in Brazil, and Tottenham are once again linked with a couple of the home nations midfielders. Paulinho and Bernard are both up and coming players becoming regulars in the Brazilian squad, both it seems have been earmarked as possible additions to the AVB revolution at Tottenham, both would seem to complement the squad and the style that is being instilled into this set of players, they are the right age with their best years ahead of them and as importantly to the money men of Tottenham will not cost a fortune in todays market.

Bernard has been touted as a target for a couple of weeks now but Paulinho, who has finally established himself in the national team, has only recently been linked to Tottenham. It has been suggested by Paulinho himself that his agent is currently in London, that could mean that he is on holiday, visiting friends or family, talking with Chelsea, Arsenal or perhaps even Tottenham representatives. Franco Baldini left his previous club on the 5th June and whilst he is expected to become the Technical Director of Tottenham there has yet to be an announcement, perhaps it will be left until the 1st July when many contracts in football seem to begin, in the meantime he is surely making himself useful in what is the most crucial period of the transfer period and beginning to make his mark for Tottenham by convincing AVB’s targets to sign for the club.

The extra twist to the Paulinho agent story is that he also handles the affairs of Bernard the other Tottenham target. Now it is wishful thinking I know but could Tottenham be about to pull off another sensational deal for a couple of South Americans, this time from Brazil, and before they have had the chance to excel in a World Cup and showcase their abilities. Who knows a third Brazilian might yet swell the Tottenham ranks during this transfer window and if they prove to be even close to the ability and influence of Sandro then Tottenham will have a squad to fear.
