In 2012 we sold Modric to Real Madrid. According to ITK at the time the replacement was to be Porto's Moutinho. If I remember rightly AVB was even on the phone to Moutinho on deadline day trying to persuade him to come - but it never happened. For whatever reason. (We got Dempsey instead which must have been a big blow for AVB).
Now we've sold Walker and it appears that Perreira is the potential replacement according to ITK. (I don't think another name has been brought up by ITK - but could be wrong).
If Perreira is indeed Pochettino's first choice then I'm hoping that lightning doesn't strike twice in our dealings with Porto where the manager's preferred replacement fails to materialize.
Levy can be a tough negotiator in selling a player but he also needs to be a charming, persuasive and successful negotiator when acquiring a player.
This whole Barkley thing is really stale. Even the itk is struggling to rouse me; I only get quarters from this, not semis. It's a damning indictment of the pre- viagra age when stiffies in the over 50s only happened when it was winter and you'd forgotten to pay the electric company
