Tottenham eye double swoop for Real Madrid and Barcelona pair

Tottenham transfer news: Spurs could find themselves with a massive double La Liga haul by the end of the week

Tottenham hasn’t made significant transfer market investments. While their London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal have spent a combined $558 million ($710 million) on players, James Maddison for about £40 million has been Spurs’ most expensive acquisition this summer.

Numerous names have been linked to Ange Postecoglou’s team over the past few weeks, but no agreements with players like Brennan Johnson of Nottingham Forest have yet materialized.

But now, Spanish publication Nacional (via Football365) claims that Tottenham has put Real Madrid a proposal for £86 million ($110 million) to sign winger Rodrygo on a permanent basis.

The Brazilian international has been crucial for the Spanish powerhouses in recent years. After scoring twice against Manchester City in the Champions League semifinal in 2022 to help the team advance and win their 14th European Cup, he developed a cult following at the club.

We all know Tottenham has a lot of extra cash after the summer departure of club star Harry Kane, according to football.london. It’s past time for them to use it effectively.

The club’s record fee for a signing now stands at £53 million for Tanguy Ndombele from a few years ago, therefore a bid of £86 million would utterly shatter that mark. According to rumors that he is personally pushing for the celebrity himself, chairman Daniel Levy is allegedly “obsessed” with the 22-year-old.

With his participation in 17 goals, joining Postecoglou and company would be a no-brainer; the question is whether Real Madrid will allow him to leave.

Carlo Ancelotti will need as many tools as possible for his final year in charge of the team, especially after losing star striker Karim Benzema to a lucrative Saudi Arabian contract.

Levy will need to pull off a miracle with just a few days left to complete the task to convince Madrid and Rodrygo’s team to accept the proposal, but stranger things have happened late in transfer windows.

Ansu Fati, a young Barcelona player, has been connected with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in an extraordinary development that no one could have predicted.

The 20-year-old would greatly aid Postecoglou’s team in filling the vacuum created by Kane’s departure earlier this month as he had seven goals and three assists in just 12 starts under Xavi the previous season.

What a deal this may be for Spurs, according to football.london. What more could Ange Postecoglou want for to close the transfer window than one of the top young talents in the world to arrive on their doorstep on loan?

It should be noted that some rumors that they will only consider Fati if they are unable to sign Brennan Johnson, although a loan move to capture a premium player this late in the window is unusual.

While there are rumors that Fati isn’t as convinced about a move to Spurs, watching what he could do in La Liga at just 20 years old will thrill supporters if he does arrive. Barcelona and the player’s agency are both pushing for an escape.

If captain Son Heung-min ever needed a break, he could support the left side while still being able to play through the middle and on the right.

Although Spurs would probably be responsible for paying the entirety of his wages, which are reputedly worth £200,000 ($254,000) per week, it would still be a significant coup for a team still vying to finish in the top four.

To sign the player, swipe right; to swerve them, swipe left.
