Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy gets a lot of unfair flack at some points from some sections within the fanbase, but he regularly pulls off blinders and given the recent news that we had joined the chase for long term Arsenal target William Saliba, fans think he’s pulled off a masterstroke once again.
With the reports over the weekend seeming to suggest that we’d put in an offer that had actually gazumped Arsenal’s agreed bid with St Etienne for the highly rated 18-year-old, it was always known that any deal for him would see him return to the Ligue 1 club for game time to increase his development further.
It seems our offer was purely upfront as a payment and Arsenal have now been forced into agreeing the same deal, and for many fans, if we get the player great as he’s a talent. If we don’t get him, we’ve forced Arsenal into splashing a big portion of their budget for a player they won’t see until next year.

Because if we get him we’ve signed a good player for the future with money left to spend
If they sign him levys made arsenal use nearly all of their budget on a player they won’t get till next year ???????? don levy

The end of their spending, and for a player they can’t use. Daniel is on a mad one.
