Impressive Baldini start with Paulinho deal close.

Posted on June 22, 2013 by Eddie S

He has only been in the job for a couple of days but with news of a deal for Paulinho having been agreed, at least with his club,it is a great start for the new Director of Football. Though the deal is not yet signed, sealed and delivered you would expect that the player himself will sail through any medical that he might face as his style of play suggests he is  an athlete at the peak of his powers. It is likely that his agent when visiting London a week or so ago might have just happened to bump into a few of the Tottenham money men while they were also shopping in London, as a result terms might have been mentioned and Paulinho himself is presumably happy with what is on offer. Unless one of the super rich clubs feels the need to offer more outrageous terms and fee then hopefully this will be a done deal very soon.

The signature of Paulinho even at a club record £17m would still seem a fantastic piece of business, he is just 24 years old, has established himself in the Brazil team at the expense of Fernandinho who is 4 years older and has just signed for Manchester City for £30m. It seems that AVB will now have plenty of midfield options as he will be able to play Paulinho, Sandro and Dembele as an extremely powerful 3 man midfield, he will be able to perm any 2 of the 3 without any significant loss of qualityand they will all suit a 4 3 3 or 4 2 3 1 formation.

With this purchase, assuming it completes of course, there is little doubt that the squad improves by a fair measure and if this is going to be the quality of the new players joining Tottenham this term then the prospects for the season are looking up dramatically. We know that the club are looking for at least one out and out striker as well as another offensive player able to contribute goals from a wider position, somehow I don’t think that Paulinho will remain Tottenham’s record purchase for very much longer as, if the right players become available, it seems that Daniel Levy is set to go that extra mile to make anything possible this coming season.

Every Tottenham supporter will sleep that little bit easier once the Paulinho deal is completed, once done and another exceptional player is added to the ranks it might seem obvious that the next target would see Tottenham’s ambition and wish to become a part of what is happening. Slowly but surely Tottenham are building a youthful squad full of amazing talent, it is not intended to be a one season wonder like City followed by more huge investment, Tottenham are building for longevity, like United of the 90’s and Arsenal earlier this century, but they need to win a trophy and cross that line between almost and actually doing before the team can truly take off.

JTN went on record as saying that Paulinho, Soldado and Bernard were the player needed, well it’s now one down and two to go.
