He might have been, but I'm not. The pressure Barkley seems to be putting on Everton, along with his insistence on coming to Spurs. Or at least his supposed interest. Combined with Spurs patients or stubbornness, however you want to see it, makes me think Spurs will save a good 10 mil or so when/if the sale finally happens. Everton has lost leverage all ready. They can't be happy about it, but if things continue to go negatively on their end, they might not want to risk further deflation.
