Today’s fluff was a wildcard call-up
This summer could be a lot of fun at Tottenham Hotspur, where various employees are harrumphing about their salaries and Daniel Levy’s vice-like wallet. Mauricio Pochettino got the ball rolling early to pique Chelsea’s interest (but says he’s happy where he is, according to The Star) and now Toby Alderweireld is supposed to be heading out of the door marked More Money, before taking the Cash Highway all the way to Manchester United.
José Mourinho also has his beady eye on Kieran Tierney but Tottenham, Bournemouth and Atlético Madrid have their gimlet gazes trained on the Scotland defender too, leading to the appealing notion of a gaggle of European scouts desperately hoovering up tickets for the Celtic v Kilmarnock Scottish Cup final. United are also considering a punt on Nottingham Forest’s 16-year-old left-back Matthew Bondswell.
