Tottenham got off to a very lopsided start to the season, with Nuno Santo overseeing three wins in the spin and then Premier League manager of the month.
However, after a wonderful August, the Spurs were back on the brink for the whole of September as they only won once in the league.
What is the word
What didn’t help Nuno’s men is star man Harry Kane’s lack of goals.
Tottenham managed to hold onto the English captain over the summer despite a lot of speculation, but he still has to find the net in the top division in 2021/22.
His future at the club is still unclear but recent reports in Italy suggest that Spurs could sign Alvaro Morata to replace Kane.
Do you want Morata on Spurs?
Under no circumstance!
Currently valued by Transfermarkt at £ 40.5 million, it would probably be an expensive sanction step.
Morata is currently on loan to Juventus from Atletico Madrid but the old lady doesn’t want him to become an integral part of the furniture. Thus, it opens the door for Spurs to move in and fall.
Throw your thoughts back to summer 2013 and Tottenham fans will sink into a ball of fear.
The club sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid after using part of the eventual fee to purchase Roberto Soldado.
The Spanish striker landed on a then-record club deal worth £ 26m, but it was a huge waste of time and money.
Soldado had significant problems in English football, scoring only 16 times in 76 games. His time in north London is a constant source of agony for the striker who barely spoke ardently of his time there.
In an interview with The Guardian, he said: “I always say that if there is a part of my career that I am not happy with, it is my time at Tottenham.”
The striker continued: “I also struggled with Harry Kane’s boom.”
Unfortunately, Morata is also a player who has been heavily criticized for his performance, especially in England.
During his tenure at Chelsea, the attacker consistently missed easy scoring opportunities, a habit that has stood the test of time elsewhere on the continent throughout his time.
In 2019/20 he scored just 12 goals in 34 games for Atletico and only 11 goals in 32 games for Juve last season.
His form at the European Championship was also questionable. Like Soldado, he fought outside the gate and got pretty hammered by Gary Neville.
The outspoken expert remarked, “He has this vulnerable look, almost like he needs a cuddle.”
“It’s like apologizing at the ball before touching it, ‘Sorry, I have to kick you here!’ There is simply no such thing as belief. “
Also described as “fragile” by Maurizio Sarri, Morata clearly lacks the ability to be a constant threat.
Considering he could replace Kane, this is a disaster waiting to happen. If they end up selling, they can’t afford to repeat the situation that played out when Bale walked through the exit door.
Morata is someone Daniel Levy simply has to forget.
