Manager has ‘great regrets’ over blocking 25-year-old’s move to Spurs – will allow him to join in January

Information about Tottenham Hotspur’s unsuccessful summer bid to buy Victor Nelsson from Galatasaray has come to light.

The center-back was targeted by the North London club, who reportedly made an offer for him as well.

The player was disappointed by his team’s choice to obstruct his move, and the Turkish giants turned down their offer, much to his dismay.

According to Haber7, Okan Buruk, the manager of Galatasaray, insisted on rejecting a nearly €20 million bid from both Tottenham AND Sevilla for the Denmark international.

According to the story, the manager has since expressed his “great regrets” for not allowing the player to join Spurs during the summer transfer window to people close to him.

According to a recent source, Spurs are still interested in signing the €30 million release clause defender in January.

If Tottenham is prepared to spend the money in January, they will be able to have his services.

They need to strengthen their defense depth, and Nelsson would be a wise acquisition.

He might be sold in January for just €20 million, according to a different recent rumor in the Turkish publication Milliyet.

The club does not want Nelsson’s value to decrease throughout the season because he has slipped down the hierarchy of importance.

Because of this, they are ready to let him leave in January for a small fee.

‘This kid is a nightmare’: Jermain Defoe admits one of his old Spurs teammates was shocking behind the scenes

The legendary Jermain Defoe of Tottenham Hotspur has finally acknowledged that Adel Taarabt was a complete nightmare for the team back in the day.

Defoe was remembering some of his former colleagues while on “Football Firsts” with Troy Deeney.

And when the conversation turned to Taarabt, Defoe was ready to praise his talent but less so his demeanor at Tottenham.

“I remember Adel Taarabt, in training, and that he would try all these tricks and lads used to get frustrated that he didn’t train well,” he recalled.

He skipped meals that we were supposed to be eating, but after we played at home against someone, he did that thing, and I saw it on Instagram.

He would grab it, roll it, and flick it away. He used to do crazy things. So naturally talented.

He did it in the game, and a picture of Didier Zokoro doing it behind him with his hands on his head is available.

He used to simply play the game and you would think, “This kid is unbelievable,” but you would have to make an effort to speak with him because you would believe he is a nightmare.

Defoe said Taarabt did his own thing at Tottenham

Of course, Spurs supporters may anticipate that such a character wouldn’t be valued at Tottenham in today’s society.

Even though Ange Postecoglou is a renowned expert at managing people, Taarabt’s statements suggest that even he may have had difficulty persuading him to change.

Spurs now appear to have a group that is extremely driven and eager to implement all of Ange’s recommendations.

And the outcomes serve as the proof.

It’s not surprising that so many Spurs players, like Destiny Udogie and Ben Davies, are succeeding while on international duty.

While Defoe would argue that Taarabt might have been able to play for this Tottenham team, he would undoubtedly need to adapt his habits.

Since he joined the team, Postecoglou has had a fresh start and appears to have the full support of his team for his goals.
