Surely if we've been speaking with Isco and/or his dad for the past week about a transfer he must have had some interest in moving, unless we've spent the past 6 days repeatedly asking 'you sure'?

I remember Willian having a serious amount of interest too; right up until the point that Maureen sent a cab over to pick him up from White Hart Lane.

Spanish paper Fichajes says that Isco has rejected us to stay at Madrid.
Ok the rumor seems to come from OK Diario (well thats where Mundo Deportivo quote the rumor from), and seems to be a day old. OK Diario is a madrid based digital newspaper which is only a couple of months old. It may be that it originates from a source, though it looks to me that they just fused old news (where isco publicly declared wanting to stay a few weeks ago) with the tottenham story.

This article seems the source of the rumour

However, a newer article suggests it could happen.

I dont really think that OK Diario have any inside contacts, I think its just the way that they compose old news stories together. The paper also claims in a few articles that Madrid will sell one of Isco or James.

Why would @THFCSPURS19 rate this informative post as Doh?

Some weird shit goes on in these TR threads...

There are always very odd negs and "neutral" ratings on posts that dont deserve them in this section. Its baffling, IMO.
I would guess that most have been given by mistake when scrolling down the screen on mobile.

I've done it loads by mistake and only realised when I've looked at the ratings I've given.

Putting my very dusty, seldom used 'Levy is a tight fisted ****' conspiracy hat on for a moment.

GKN was probably signed 3 weeks ago but the bald midget wanted to delay the announcement until deadline day to make it look like he was busy right up until the very last minute trying to improve the squad and to quell any unease about our thin squad.

Seeing as though the prevailing attitude is to accept any idle speculation as truth when it comes to the anti-Livy agenda I'm goign to go right ahead and believe this. What a ****!

As an investor that makes no sense. Get the most out of your asset and the biggest one is the club. A winning club makes more money. A CL club makes more money. If a player is needed to better the team and propel them to compete and win then that player is on the field as quick as possible.

There is no way in hell this to deflect criticism. One negotiation doesn't stop other conversations to take place.

Anyone concerned at the ever shrinking first team squad becoming even more shrinky like by the day. Chadli, Mason, Son, Njie all on the way out apparently. Have we got some Messi clones coming through from the academy or what? Squad looks wafer thin to me.

I mean its a CL, EPL, FA, Lge Cup, Internationals type of calendar this season for our squad to cope with and its getting fricken' smaller by the minute. Bloody surreal in my opinion :D

All will be revealed tomorrow night but yes the squad does look thin on the ground while our bench resembles a front row at a justin bieber concert.
Im sure the club have a plan though which will be 3 new faces coming in, or as is more likely the wage bill is now down to a managable level.

Son has said there has been no contact so he is not going
