That is probably Levy's MO, and it may play out like that. But we all know that Poch will want any new players in as soon as possible to have a proper Spurs pre-season and start adapting to Poch's demands. If Everton have dropped the price on Barkley and get their new AM (Viera) in within a few days, then it's in their interests to shift a sulking player out. As we know, the old "groin strain" ruse is being used to keep Barkley out of their tour. There may be a deal to be done, and we shall see if Levy goes early this year after last summer's £30m Sissoko deadline day fiasco.
