Baldini’s first job, get Paulinho.

Posted on June 20, 2013 by Tony

Franco Baldini was finally appointed by Tottenham yesterday and his first job must be to finally complete the deal for Paulinho from Corinthians. the pace, power and technical ability of this player is incredible, a real box to box player and destined to become a regular starter for club and country. During the Confederations Cup he has not only notched a good goal but has been a constant threat, against a decent Mexico side last night he produced another fine performance highlighted by a storming run late on that took him from his own half to the edge of the Mexico box, a few players were left trailing and he laid the ball off to create a chance for his team.

The thought of a Tottenham midfield containing him Sandro and Dembele either together or alternating would be amazing and give AVB so many options, the three of them together in tough away fixtures or any two of the three offering the protection needed to allow Tom Carroll or Lewis Holtby to do their creative stuff would be incredible. His buyout clause is reported to be just £17m and whilst he would appear to be worth every penny of that it is probable that Tottenham will try to achieve a deal that might only result in that payment if the player actually is successful.

Unfortunately so far there has not been an opportunity to see another Tottenham target in the shirt of Brazil, Bernard, he has remained on the bench so far and therefore judgement cannot be made, similarly the Internacional centre forward, who shall remain nameless, is injured. Games involving Spain obviously include another couple of potential Tottenham players in Soldado and Villa and hopefully negotiations are ongoing for at least one of them (Soldado I hope).

It will be comforting to get that first signing over and done with, even better a double or triple signing announcement and photo call would really make everybody sit up and take notice, and with Franco Baldini there to speed up the process maybe by the middle of July the majority of the final squad will be in place.
