I sense more Tottenham contract announcements. Next up Vertonghen.

Posted on July 10, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

Just like Sandro might be heading to Napoli or even Zenit for £5m, like Lloris being  targeted by Monaco and PSG and now Jan Vertonghen being the subject of interest from Barcelona and several other clubs according to his agent, perhaps we should be reading “I have 2 years left on my existing contract and if you don’t come up with more money and a longer deal then my value will begin to decrease or I might consider taking up one of these so called offers”

Call me a sceptic but how often does this prove to be the case, the player wants a new contract or rather lots more money as contracts really don’t mean that much these days, didn’t Bale, Modric and Suarez sign new long term deals less than a year before they demanded to leave? Last year Rooney cried wolf again and ended up with someting like a 25% pay rise to £300k pw, before that Daniel Agger or his agent let it be known that Barcelona wanted him and he signed a new deal for something in ther region of £80k pw and then hardly figured for the team on a regular basis.

A committed Jan Vertonghen will be most welcome at the Lane for years to come.

Correct me if I am wrong but does Thomas Vermaelen only have a year left on his contract? did he struggle to play as a regular for Arsenal anytime in the last 2 seasons and yet we are led to believe that Manchester United are desperate for his services and are willing to pay £12m for him! with a year left and as good as a utility/backup player for his current club £6m is nearer the mark and unlikely to be headed to a United team that is desperate to challenge again for the title let alone achieving top four.

Hopefully Sandro is back to full fitness and Jan Vertonghen has rediscovered his mojo, if so both players will be vital for Tottenham next season and will therefore be handed new deals and stay. It’s no certainty that this is all a ruse to get a new deal but most footballers have previous and it is generally the case, Theo Walcott being the perfect example, a player whose demands were enormous and held Arsenal to ransom even though when he could have signed a pre-contract and gone for nothing nobody was willing to cough up.

Just 18months ago they were arguably the best partnership in the division

With Michael Dawson likely to be heading out and doubts over the fitness of Younes Kaboul remaining, Tottenham are left relatively thin on the ground in central defence, there remains hope that Vlad Chiriches has come to terms with the premiership and is able to step up his game after a decent first year leaving Vertonghen as the key man and currently our best by some margin. Tottenham need another top quality central defender but having to acquire two might present a problem, because of this I’m betting that Vertonghen will probably be the next to announce a new Tottenham contract.

    Ventonghen is not barca’s class. . He is just spurs’s class. . Ha ha

      Nor is Sanchez that’s why they got rid and only Arsenal and Liverpool wanted him especially for that money. Don’t you find it strange that Chelsea, City, United, Bayern, juventus, PSG and Monaco didn’t want him? Yes like Ozil wasn’t Real Madrid class, Samchez wasn’t Barca class they overcharge the gooners for their cast offs. Ozil and Sanchez equals gooner class and that’s no recommendation. I seem to recall Vertonghen turning Arsenal down for Spurs just so you know.

    I can understand you guys disappoinment. . Lol. . Its ok. . . Please longlive in the shadow of mighty arsenal! ! Sanchez n ozil are truely world class! The only class player spurs have is lloris. But no use! Sczezny has 16 clean sheets & he was the best keeper in epl last season! ! I’ve sympathy for lloris for signing that contract extension!!

    If sanchez is no good then how come this site has a story about him maybe going to spurs. Dont tell me you wouldn’t have him.

    • Tony says:

      if you cared to read what was said it agreed that he was a very good player but not a world beater like a Bale, Neymar, Suarez etc. the way you are all talking we might just as well give you the title cos you have bought him. He will improve you and he would us but if Barca are letting him go and none of the other wealthy clubs wanted him he is obviously not top notch even though you have again paid top price.

      • Anonymous says:

        If Bale is a so called world beater then how come your club sold him. Wouldn’t you rather have him than half a dozen flops?

        • Tony says:

          Let me ask why you sold Henry, Fabregas, Adebayor, toure, nasri, clichy,van persie,song. They all went to bigger more successful clubs. also ask yourselves why those bigger more successful clubs let you have ozil and sanchez and why none of them want walcott,wilshire etc. in fact NONE of your players are wanted by the big wealthy clubs are they? Let’s face it both Spurs and Arsenal have work to do to break the monopoly that is emerging with these super rich clubs tipping everything in their favour, no exceptional players in their right mind would choose Monaco, PSG or some of the eastern european clubs if it wasn’t for the money they offer. That’s how Chelsea and now city got started.
