Latest Spurs news: Tottenham’s new stadium to host Saracens game from 2020

Tottenham announced a five-year with Saracens Rugby Club to host their annual ‘Big Game’ Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixture at the new stadium from 2020.

The release adds that the reigning league champions have used Wembley, and more recently the London Stadium, as the venue for their clash which normally takes place during the March football international break.

This isn’t the only non-football event that will be held at the new stadium. The release confirms that the club has a long-term agreement to host NFL regular season games at the venue.

A ‘world-class multi-use venue’

Daniel Levy was pleased with the new development and claimed that the deal would also help the economy of the region (h/t Tottenhamhotspur.com):

“This agreement with Saracens further reinforces our aspiration to deliver a world-class multi-use venue in our home of Tottenham.

“To attract one of world rugby’s biggest club sides will bring a new audience to the area, as well as help drive significant socio-economic benefits for businesses and local people, as we continue to underline our commitment to the regeneration of north Tottenham.”

The chairman added that such tie-ups at the new stadium could transform this area of London and Nigel Wray, the chairman of Saracens echoed Levy’s sentiments of helping the area.

Tottenham have already held two test events at the new ground, an U18 game and a legends fixture.

The stadium will host its first senior fixture on Wednesday as Tottenham play London rivals Crystal Palace.

Levy shares concerning message about why Tottenham couldn’t sell players in the summer

Daniel Levy highlights why Tottenham couldn’t sell players in the summer

Tottenham face problems as several players are keen on moving from the club, according to the Mirror.

Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen and Christian Eriksen are in the final year of their deals and could leave for free next summer.

Daniel Levy recently spoke about Spurs not being able to sell their unwanted stars, during a meeting with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust.

The chairman explained that clubs weren’t keen on some of the players and the offers on the table weren’t acceptable either.

The minutes of the meeting read (h/t Mirror):

“DL (Levy) said Tottenham had been one of the biggest spenders among Premier League clubs in the recent transfer window. It had also not generated all the sales the club hoped for.

“DL reiterated just how difficult it is to get a transfer over the line.

“In 90 per cent of instances either a buyer could not be found for a player or the player did not wish to join the club that had expressed an interest in buying them.”

Not being able to sell players that don’t want to be at the club is a problem, and that seems to have affected us. It is a little shocking that we couldn’t get deals done and now have to keep them until January at least.

Levy suggests there could be other departures

The chairman also spoke about the players in the last year of their deals and added that Spurs couldn’t force anyone to sign a new deal. Levy also claimed that some stars have been at Tottenham for a long time and wanted to play elsewhere.

It could be a painful summer for Tottenham, with several players possibly leaving the club. This would start another rebuilding cycle and we should not have fallen into this phase after the great work done by Mauricio Pochettino.

Replacing Eriksen or Alderweireld will not be cheap. However, we will lose them for nothing if they run their contract out. Tottenham have a lot of work to do in the coming months and hopefully, we don’t lose our competitive edge.

Former England manager backs Tottenham boss Pochettino to snub Premier League rivals

Sam Allardyce backs Mauricio Pochettino to snub Manchester United job

Former Everton and England manager Sam Allardyce has backed Mauricio Pochettino to stick with Tottenham.

Manchester United and Spurs have had poor starts to the season, and Pochettino has been linked with the job at Old Trafford (h/t Metro).

However, the Red Devils are below Spurs in the table, and Allardyce claims Tottenham have a better side than United (h/t Metro):

“I can’t see Mauricio going anywhere at the moment

“At the moment, Tottenham are a better squad than Manchester United – and that is a telling fact.

“It’s alright saying, ‘this is Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world’, but has it got the team to go with it to represent Manchester United?”

Tottenham are still in a better place than United

Although our season has been far from satisfactory, Spurs are capable of turning things around. Pochettino is one of the top managers in the world and just needs to tweak certain things in the team.

United, for their part, don’t seem to have a proper game plan and most of the players aren’t doing well.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started his career at Old Trafford with a bang but after becoming the permanent manager, things haven’t been great.

They lie two points off the relegation zone and face Liverpool after the international break. Tottenham face a struggling Watford, and we should get the three points against the Hornets.

Allardyce is right in suggesting we have a better squad than the Red Devils, and it is time for the players to step up.

Bayern Munich see Christian Eriksen as cheaper option than Philippe Coutinho

Bayern Munich are the latest giants to be linked with Christian Eriksen, according to Sport 1 (h/t Sky Sports).

The Bundesliga giants have a fantastic squad at hand but are interested in landing the Dane, who is a free agent in the summer.

The report adds that the Bavarians will fight Real Madrid for the signature of Eriksen. However, the Dane is open to leaving London for Munich (h/t Sky Sports).

The Tottenham star is one of the most creative players in the Premier League, and Bayern see him as a replacement for a summer signing.

Eriksen to replace Coutinho?

Philippe Coutinho had a woeful time at Barcelona and was allowed to join Bayern on loan in the summer.

However, the Germans see Eriksen as a cheaper option to Coutinho and he could be signed for nothing in January (h/t Sky Sports).

The Dane could do a great job at Bayern but Coutinho has had a decent start to his career in Germany.

The Brazilian has two goals and two assists from six Bundesliga games and was one of the stars during the Copa America. Eriksen, for his part, has struggled for form this season and only has one goal and an assist.

Christian Eriksen turns down contract offer from Tottenham

Christian Eriksen seems set to leave Tottenham after he rejected a 50% pay increase on his current deal, according to AS (h/t Daily Star).

The Dane is a free agent at the end of the season and Spurs have attempted to keep him at the club.

Eriksen isn’t the only player on the final year of his contract, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen too in the same boat.

The report claims that Eriksen earns €4m per season after tax and Tottenham were willing to raise that to €6m.

The new deal would have put Eriksen on the same pay scale as Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris, however, the Dane would still earn less than Kane (h/t Daily Star).

Tottenham could have made a huge sum in the summer

Real Madrid are still keen on the 27-year-old Dane and could move for him in January (h/t Daily Star).

They were hesitant to move in the summer after their grand spending on Eden Hazard and other stars. Tottenham wanted €70m for Eriksen in the summer while Real were also keen on Paul Pogba (h/t Daily Star).

Eriksen can negotiate with foreign clubs in January and move on a free transfer at the end of the season. The 27-year-old hasn’t been at his best but Spurs have also struggled this campaign.
