Tottenham news: Spurs handed Bayern Munich transfer blow as European Super League plans slammed

Here is your Tottenham morning digest on Friday, March 4.

Spurs suffer Spence blow

According to a report from Sky Sports, Bayern Munich are interested in reported Tottenham target Djed Spence.

The 21-year-old, who is on loan at Nottingham Forest from Middlesbrough, has been in fine form for the Championship outfit this season and has attracted interest from around Europe.

Bayern are said to be preparing an approach to Boro about a summer transfer window move for Spence in the ‘coming weeks’.

North London duo Tottenham and Arsenal have both been credited with an interest in Spence in the last few weeks.

What Valencia fans did to Gil

Valencia reached the Copa del Rey final earlier in the week, with Tottenham loanee Bryan Gil starring for the Spaniards.

Gil is adored in Valencia already despite playing just seven games since completing a loan move from Spurs in January.

When celebrating with the Spanish club’s supporters after the game, chants of “Bryan, stay” could be heard loud and clear in the streets as they pleaded to the 21-year-old attacker.


Super League plans slammed

UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin has said that clubs are allowed to enter the European Super League if they wish, but they will not be allowed to play in any UEFA competitions if that is the case.

Tottenham were among six Premier League clubs who initially declared their interest in being involved in the breakaway league until mass protests from supporters up and down the country saw all three teams withdraw.

Now, with rumours that Juventus, Barcelona and Real Madrid want to re-open plans over the controversial competition, Ceferin did not hold back with his comments.

Speaking at the Financial Times’ Business of Football Summit, Ceferin said: “I am tired of talking about this nonsense.

“First they try to launch during a pandemic, now we hear that they are trying to launch in the middle of a war. Do I have to speak more about these people? They obviously live in a parallel world.

“While we are saving players together with other stakeholders, while we are working to help in a terrible situation, they work on a project like that.

“Honestly speaking, they can pay whoever they want to write that this is a nice project, that they are full of solidarity and give some charity to small clubs. This is a complete nonsense and everybody except them knows it.”
