We would absolutely not splash this money on a 29 yr old. Totally against our current philosophy. Hasn't played in PL, no sell on value and would be practically the oldest outfield player in the squad. Laughable that a paper would print this.

Never fails to amaze me how mainstream media can peddle any old shit and not be sued; if this level of bs was spread about individuals or companies in the political sphere then they'd be dragged thru the courts

We wouldn't pay £2.9m for Martinez, let alone £29m. If he was 5+ years younger, this might not be completely unbelievable.

There's only 3 players I would want from Atleti: Koko, Griezmann and Carrasco (yes I know Juanfran, Jimenez, Saul Niguez are top notch players as well). None of them are within Spurs budget.
I wish Spurs had gone all out for Griezmann back in 2014 (which I stated back then). But Poch was new and had to assess his squad etc. Carrasco seem to statr to "produce" as well this season. Oh well.

They must have a chairman who's got better skills and Levy in selling players :D
