Today’s rumours don’t know what they’re doing
What a difference five days make. Tottenham, slipping from title contenders to top-four hangers-on, look set to repeat history rather than make it and the implications may stretch beyond May.
That’s because, relatively-new contract or not, Mauricio Pochettino wants trophies and – according to reports this morning – knows he can win them at Real Madrid. There’s bound to be another vacancy at the Bernabéu soon, particularly after Santiago Solari’s side suffered a 3-0 shellacking to none other than Barcelona earlier this week. Will Pochettino now be tempted by the job he’s been linked for over such a long period of time – and perhaps even the opportunity to make a transfer or two and help keep this pretty little Mill ticking along.
Less damagingly – for now, at least – it seems Championship leaders Norwich are keen as mustard for Spurs’ young defender Maxwell Statham, whose contract ends at the end of this season and is yet to be handed another. Sunderland, Brentford and Nottingham Forest are also nibbling around after the 20-year-old, whose dad is the former Spurs man Brian Statham, though not the legendary Lancashire quick bowler.
