Writing on Twitter, journalist Alasdair Gold has claimed that ‘those within the club believe‘ Tottenham can lift a first Premier League crown this season, with Gareth Bale making players and staff ‘excited‘ in training.
Can Tottenham win the Premier League?
No, top four
The 31-year-old was consistently linked with a move back to Tottenham, but Real Madrid’s asking price along with the Welshman’s lucrative salary had been stumbling blocks.
Gareth Bale could be a serious coup for Spurs
However, when reports surfaced that the Galacticos were willing to subsidise half of his wages, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy couldn’t resist a swoop and managed to negotiate arguably one of the summer’s best deals.
Bale is joined by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Joe Hart, Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Carlos Vinicius in signing for the north Londoners during the summer transfer window.
Arguably Spurs’ best summer window in years, club figures are apparently in dreamland over what they could achieve this season, including a Premier League triumph, despite finishing 40 points behind champions Liverpool in 2019/2020.
talkSPORT pundit Darren Gough described the feat as a would-be ‘absolute miracle‘, but Tottenham are under the belief they can certainly challenge and do the unthinkable, according to Gold.
Transfer Tavern take
Of course, strengthening in key areas was a major factor over the summer, with Levy doing particularly well to shore up the weakened left-back and striker positions.
Spurs appear to have captured an ideal blend of youth, quality and experience, including free agent Hart who provides a winning mentality that he garnered at Manchester City.
Whether or not Mourinho’s men properly push for the title remains to be seen, but judging by their fine start to 2020/2021, it’s certainly possible.
