AVB throws red herring in Bernard chase.

Posted on June 24, 2013 by Guest Writer

When Andre Villas-Boas spoke of Martinez of Porto and Bernard the little Brazilian wizard┬áhe clearly stated that there was no interest in the Porto forward but stopped short of saying the same of Bernard, using words like “doubt” or “don’t think so”. Only a few days before the players agent had suggested that Bernard was linked to both Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund but as only Tottenham had made any sort of offer that they were the only game in town.

Last summer it seemed that Oscar was set for Tottenham until Chelsea became aware that he was available and so ended the deal and all the work that had gone into it. It is possible that Tottenham are concerned that something similar might happen again and they are almost certainly a little perturbed that the players agent has spoken out, and probably fear that it has been to start a bidding frenzy for the player.

AVB has been credited with fantastic knowledge of the Brazilian market and he already works with Sandro who became a regular International and has been an outstanding player for Tottenham and one of the fans favourite players he must surely report back to his International teammates that Tottenham are a great club to join. Since joining Tottenham he has cemented his place in the International team and so is another nail in the argument that playing for a club like Tottenham drags players down.

It might be that Bernard himself does not yet feel the time is right to move abroad, he is afterall just 20yrs old, and he certainly seems set on finishing what he has started with his club as was the case with Sandro, he might well see the season out and still decide to join Tottenham before the transfer window closes and so this deal might yet still have some legs.
