Van Bommel in, Palacios out?
It has been suggested that Bayern Munich midfielder Mark Van Bommel, could be a target for Tottenham, either in January or the summer.
33 year old Van Bommel is out of contract in the summer and although Bayern are looking to extend his stay at the club, the opportunity to play in the Premiership, even for a short period could appeal to the Dutchman.
The benefits of signing Van Bommel are that not only could he be a cheap or free transfer, but he would offer genuine experience and leadership to the side and could be an ideal tutor for our new superstar, Sandro, not forgetting he could be ideal company for the great Rafael van der Vaart.
Should a deal be made, it would surely spell the end for Wilson Palacios at Spurs, and based on recent games, it is already quite possible that our Brazilian has leapfrogged our Honduran as our first choice ball winner, but in the short term a player of Van Bommel`s pedigree could be a great asset, whilst also allowing us to cash in on Palacios and use that money to bring in players elsewhere in the squad.
Harry won`t worry about the players age and would welcome his experience and as we have seen with his bringing in William Gallas and trying to sign Patrick Vieira, if the player offers enough positives, he won`t worry about the date on his birth certificate...
