In bed with Madrid?...
Given all the gossip so far this summer, much criticism has been made of our 'relationship' with Madrid.
After selling them rat face, Mr Levy brokered a deal to create a relationship which would be to the benefit of both clubs on top of the pile of gold we received. So what does that infamous 'relationship' actually mean?
Whose benefiting from it or was it purely just a PR exercise to appease us lot about losing our linchpin? I honestly believe we're starting to see what it actually means. These days Spurs are in the news every day without fail! Whether it's Bale being flirted with by Zizu, Madrid telling the media they would pay £100m for him or that Madrid are now chasing our shiny new Paulinho!
What these rumours have created, without any of them yet coming true, is Bale's value becoming even greater, Madrid being perceived to be willing to chase the superstars of the game and now Levy looking the hero by holding on to the 100m dollar man and signing a Brazilian who Madrid wanted!
Similarly today we're linked with one of their young superstars Jese Rodrigue, who whilst the rumours of us buying him probably won't come to fruition, again makes us look like we're out to sign top players and creates market interest in their youngster.
So is this what the relationship is all about? We play media racket ball and feed each other what we want to be in the press helping both of our reputations.
