I’ve got a bad feeling about this one.
As we told you in what is now last week of course, Spurs, the club on the cusp of Champions League football, have been caught shopping from the Football Supermarket’s. ‘Reduced to clear’ shelf.
The messages coming out of France are all pretty much the same. Loic Remy has played his last game for Nice and is very soon to announce which Premierhip club he will be playing for next season.
Stoke were deemed ‘unsuitable’ after talks between the player and the Potters. What went on is anyone’s guess, but mine would be that it was a money issue. The consequence of these discussions, it would appear, is that Nice have lowered their sights somewhat and are looking to place the player at a significantly reduced rate. One French source said, ‘Nice has a real need of money and it should be adaptable’.
The player is keen for a move citing Tottenham as an ‘interesting’ option. Failing that it’s somewhere, anywhere by the sound of things…
‘I want to go. I do not despair that an agreement will be reached by the end of August’.
