Do they need money now, could we do a Gedson type deal with a loan fee, and then obligation for next year? Helps us both out

I think them needing the money now might be our best hand.

If the money is potentially going to be there for Ings and Kim, say circa £50-55m, I'd personally much rather see us try to get Dias and a cheap target man like Dost.

That would be another improvement to our first XI which always takes precedent in my eyes.

Not totally improbable imo. Would depend on outgoings. Not sure Mourinho is really a fan of Sanchez and would probably be more than happy selling him if it meant he could put the funds towards Dias. Whether Levy would get the fee he would want in this market is another question though.

Not a fan of Dier as a starter at CB. Another one who like Davies and Aurier should be relegated to providing cover. Do like the look of Dias. Seems mobile, good in the air and looks to defend on the front foot which suits a team looking to press effectively.

I imagine Jose wants Dias and the club had been scouting/pushing for Min Jae.

I'd rather pay more in the player who has European experience.

This is my guess. Makes too much sense with the timing of the show release. Also could be a huge comarketing opportunity if they continue the show and have all this drama and big names for next season.
Jose has mentioned that Amazon will not be filming this season. Surely doesn’t mean that they won’t be returning in the future though.

Aside de Ligt, there isn't a young centerback that I want at Spurs more than Ruben Dias. He's very similar to Toby but obviously a younger version. His positioning, instincts are top notch and he is a very assured tackler. He isn't the commanding 6'4 center half but he is always in the right spot, similar to Toby.

If Toby was younger and Portuguese his name would be Ruben Dias.
disagree with the comp. Dias is way more aggressive center back, both in the air and on the ground. you're probably saying this because both like a long cross field ball but the way one and the other interpret a similar situation on the defensive end is pretty different.

Could pair up quite nicely
