Douglas Costa

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a £30million move for Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa. According to the Mirror, Spurs are interested in the Brazilian attacker and could make a move in the summer.

The Bayern winger has found his game time cut short this season and has appeared 31 times, with a total of 1785 minutes on the pitch. This has reportedly led to him considering his options in the summer and now Tottenham have emerged as potential suitors.

Tottenham have long been linked with wingers as the has struggled for quality on the flanks. Somehow, it hasn’t affected the flow of goals and we have survived all the odds to sustain a strong title challenge. Spurs are set to take on Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final this weekend and the result would virtually decide the league winner as well.

Costa has clashed with his own club over his current contract, which expires in 2020. In February Bayern president Uli Hoeness warned Costa that his “desperate attempts” to get an improved deal would not work.

Hoeness said at the time: “That doesn’t work with us. He can try 10 more times. He is certainly not a hardship case.”

Summer signing Moussa Sissoko has not impressed since arriving and has been a failure. Erik Lamela’s injury didn’t help Tottenham’s case either.

But now, the chase for Costa seems to be real. The Brazilian is undoubtedly a high-quality player. Costa arrived at the Allianz Arena in the summer of 2015 and hasn’t looked back since then. He has been an important player for the Bavarians but hasn’t really made the wing his own. Ribery’s absence helped him get some time on the pitch but this season, it seems like Costa has struggled for time.

Costa has since responded by admitting he is considering his options.

He said: “I cannot comment on names, there are contacts with teams from England, Spain and also France. But we respect Bayern. First we want to get together with them and look at what they think of it, and then we make a decision. I am still under contract with FC Bayern until 2020, I have three more years. Of course, football is a business, Bayern simply has to accept a bid and the others pay what they have to pay.”

The Brazilian would actually benefit by joining Tottenham as the club are genuinely making progress and are on their way to becoming one of Europe’s elite.

Costa’s pace and trickery are unmatched and the fullbacks in Premier League would find him difficult to handle. Signing him would show Tottenham’s intent and his experience in the Champions League would be a huge advantage too. Tottenham have struggled in European competitions and a player like Douglas would aid their European adventure too.

Do you think Tottenham will be able to lure Douglas Costa away from Bayern Munich?

Tottenham new stadium

Tottenham’s new stadium saw artificial lighting for the pitch being tested in the past week. The moveable lights are expected to help the pitch grow but there was no grass on the surface as per the video.

Football.london claims that the new pitch could be laid as early as October. The report adds that construction firm Mace revealed at a “Business Community Liaison Group” at Lilywhite House that the pitch would be laid in October.

The report adds that the dates for the test events would be revealed a month ahead of their schedule. The construction firm and club are certain that there would be no more delays regarding these events.

Football.london further claimed that an artificial NFL pitch has been installed at the base of our new home.

The latest revelations are good news for Tottenham fans who have been waiting for the stadium to be completed.

We all know that our first visitors were supposed to be Liverpool and we have been playing our Premier League home games at Wembley so far. Tottenham did play all their home games at Wembley last season as well and so, playing at this venue shouldn’t be a problem for the team.

Dele Alli

Tottenham will play their Carabao Cup Third Round clash against Watford at Stadium MK. The decision was taken with the help of the FA as Wembley is unavailable on Wednesday.

This would be our second home stadium this season after Wembley. Stadium MK will hold special memories for Dele Alli as we signed the youngster from MK Dons a few years ago.

The Englishman has become a crucial player for us and the midfielder spoke about returning to his old stomping ground.

The 22-year-old claimed that he tried to push the stadium to be selected for the clash against Watford.

Alli added that he was excited as the rest of the Tottenham players would visit Stadium MK. The 22-year-old had even hyped up the venue to his teammates.

It isn’t easy to make it to the top level and Alli added that his initial aim was to break into the first-team at MK Dons and then take it from there.

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.
