Will Spurs’ hesitancy profit Villa’s Grealish?

Will Spurs’ hesitancy profit Villa’s Grealish?

"I am with full energy, I am fitter than last season because I was thinking if a player involved in the World Cup arrives not fit then I have a possibility to play", the former Argentina global defender said at the club's training ground. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that - at the moment.

Grealish, whose future has been the subject of intense speculation for the whole summer, trained at Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground on Thursday morning and club insiders are now confident he won't be sold before the 5pm transfer deadline.

"Maybe in the mind of everyone they will say "oh Tottenham didn't sign anyone", but to sign for the sake of signing?"

Their failure to bring anyone in is the first time a Premier League club has not made a signing in the 15 years of the summer transfer window.

'It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different'. [So is] building a stadium that is almost £1 billion - that is true, don't believe £400 million.

"I think it was a great job from the club to keep the best players - and the best manager".

War Threats Weigh on the Market
Lighthizer published a list of the $200 billion in products that would face the 10 percent tariff threshold several weeks ago. China upped the ante on Thursday in response to the Trump administration's latest move.

"I am responsible for what I told you [in May] or what I tell you, but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you", he said. "It's a courageous decision".

Tottenham will move into a new 62,000-seater stadium in September after playing their first "home" game against Fulham at Wembley Stadium where they lodged last season.

Pochettino continued: "It was a odd transfer market because until England was out [of the World Cup] no-one was moving". Then with Brexit it's worse because the cost is 30 per cent more.

"You need to give your best to the position the manager says".

However, what is obvious is that if Jack Grealish does gain almost a triple-your-money pay rise, he's got Spurs' hesitancy to say thank you to. "I am the boss and if I expect from you to do something, then you need to provide it".

"I am so happy with the way they came back to training on Monday".
