Daddy’s permission first and Madrid to pay wages for Robben

£80,000 a week is how much Arjen Robben would cost Mr Levy. Apparently, Rednapp has told Levy that he wants the ex-Chelsea player, but Levy, and rightly so, is concerned about his massive wage packet. His latest idea is that Real Madrid can help to pay his wages, that would nice of them, wouldn’t it? Maybe they can pay his dry cleaning bills too. Levy is in Madrid this week to finalise dealings regarding Juan de Ramos, so it’s a perfect time to speak to them about pinching some key players. Robben’s Dad, Hans, who is also his agent, isn’t keen about his son coming to Tottenham and thinks the idea is “absolutely nonsense.” He told the Independent: “We don’t talk with Tottenham. At the moment we don’t talk with any club. Things can change overnight, but one thing is sure, Arjen will certainly not join Tottenham.” So before we can think about his lining up with Keane and Nistlerooy, he needs to get his Daddy’s permission. I think it’s a bit of a long shot to be honest. Robben will surely want to play in Champions league football next year, and I can’t see Madrid paying his wages, not after forking out on Ronaldo and Kaka. The latest rumours today are that we’re after Villa’s Reo-Coker as a replacement for Didier, who looks set to move to Sevilla.

Reo-Coker used to play for West Ham, so a move back down to London could benefit him. It’s gone quiet on the Ashley Young front at the moment, which I feel would be our best move. Having said that, two midfielders from Toulouse, Moussa Sissoko and Etienne Capoue, are also thought to be in Rednapp’s summer signing targets. There’s a lot of talk flying about, but still we haven’t made any transfers. Who would you like to see? Don’t forget that the England Under 21’s take on Spain tonight, kick off 19.45, in their second game of the Under 21 Championship.

They are top of their group and a win should secure a place in the Semi Finals. Maybe Spurs Midfielder, Danny Rose, will get his chance to shine. Finally, if you haven’t heard already, North Korea have qualified for the World Cup. Nothing to do with Spurs, but the last time they qualified was in 1966, and we all know what happened that year…
