One subject which Gold did discuss was potential concerns surrounding the new director of football, Fabio Paratici.
Will Spurs break back into the top four under Nuno?
It has been reported the north London club will need to offload players this summer in order to bring some new faces into the club amid the expected financial issues as a result of the recent state of global football.
However, the Spurs journalist has suggested there are concerns about Paratici being able to offload players from his time in Italy with Juventus.
Discussing the matter, Gold had the following to say:
“They need to get the players out the door. This was the one thing that people said about Paratici in Italy was that maybe he was so good at getting players in the door, but he wasn’t always the best at getting them out.
“And sometimes Juventus were left saddled with some players on big wages. I’m hoping that’s not the case at Tottenham, because they need outgoings, they need to create space in their wage structure, they need to create transfer funds as well.
“Because if they don’t, they’re going to either have to sort out those long-running naming rights for the stadium or they’re going to have to find some money from somewhere because they can’t be left behind this summer, they just can’t afford to.”
TIF Thoughts on potential departures at Tottenham…
One name that has been linked with a potential move away from Spurs this summer is Serge Aurier, who has reportedly agreed with the club to leave this summer.
However, we think Spurs should also be looking to offload the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Erik Lamela.
The two midfielders are both earning a reported £80k per week with the north London club which would free up a huge amount of space on the wage bill as well as creating some transfer funds.
