Barca bid for Vertonghen must be turned down.

Posted on August 09, 2013 by Eddie S

With little over a week before the season starts surely it cannot be true that Barcelona have lodged a £23m bid for Jan Vertonghen, if true just why at this stage of the transfer window as surely they must have been aware of the need for additional defensive backup for months now bearing in mind Mascherano was drafted in to play at the back last season.

David Luiz was apparently their main target  followed by Liverpool’s Daniel Agger but having been turned away by Chelsea and Liverpool they have now reportedly turned their attention to Jan Vertonghen. Tottenham sold his backup Steven Caulker just a week ago because they could not guarantee him sufficient game time because of the exceptional ability of Vertonghen. It seems that Levy has already turned down the offer and hopefully Barcelona will now move on to their next target which might be Koscielny or Vermaalen of Arsenal.

It seems that every club trying to build a team to challenge the very best in Europe are destined to be disrupted in their efforts  until the very last minute of every transfer window . Tottenham and Arsenal have been picked clean over the past few seasons by the wealthiest clubs on the planet and it’s not just about simple attempts but the drawn out disruption that is involved.

As of this moment Tottenham have only three recognised central defenders and all three have yet to be passed fit for the first game of the season, no more of this disruption must be tolerated there is far too much already as a result of Madrid and their chase for Bale, Daniel Levy must now put this enquiry firmly in it’s place, a little like the Liverpool owner and his stance over Luis Suarez, an unequivocal “no deal”.

    Firstly, consider the source, the Anti-Spurs, Pro-Gooner rag, The Mirror, that says it all! 100% pure Bull Spit!
