Barcelona scout Robert Fernandez
It’s been widely reported in the Spanish media on Wednesday, that Barcelona scout Robert Fernandez was at the Real Madrid vs Tottenham match on Tuesday night.
That’s immediately raised questions about which players Barcelona could be looking at.
Rather than poaching any of Real Madrid stars – which is surely a non-starter – all the talk is of Barcelona eyeing Tottenham’s top talent.
Real Madrid v Tottenham
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona want to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
This week the Times ran the headline on their back page that Kane has a 200 million pound price tag around his neck.
If Daniel Levy thought that number was set to scare off suitors, it looks like he might have been wrong.
Covering their bases, Mundo Deportivo also note that Barca have been monitoring Christian Eriksen since his Ajax days.
Sport: Davinson Sanchez
But according to Spanish daily Sport, Barcelona’s scout was looking at newly acquired centre-half Davinson Sanchez.
Sport tell their readers, “the progression of the Colombian international has been meteoric, given he arrived at Ajax from Atletico Nacional in 2016 and joined Spurs just a year later.”
Of course, Spurs fans are confident that they’ll retain their top stars for a while longer.
Next season Tottenham move into their new home, and it’s believed the majority of the players will be there at the start of the season.
And why would they leave? Spurs are actual challengers for the Premier League title once again this season. While the result against Real Madrid showed Spurs can compete at the highest levels in the Champions League.
