Mr Levy, I want to join a big club, and yours isn’t it!

There have been rumours that Jules Kounde is wanted by Tottenham, and where many people would like him to come to our club, he isn’t that enthusiastic himself (according to a Spanish Sports news outlet).
Kounde has shown great potential since moving to Seville from Bordeaux (in 2019) and has said that he wants to make a big move to another club, and if he has his way, it won’t be us.
It has been reported by the journalist Fabrizio Romano that Tottenham were in talks with Kounde’s representatives. In contrast, La Colina de Nervion said that Tottenham were ready to make a £50m offer for the 22-year-old. On top of that, a Spanish news outlet has said that Sevilla wishes to cash in on Kounde this summer but could face problems getting an offer at the value of what they wanted.
Manchester City also made an offer for the player (€55m), but it was quickly rejected by Saville. It is said that with Real Madrid, City, Paris Saint-Germain and United are currently not interested in the player; only ‘a second tier’ club like Tottenham remains an option for the player (ouch!). Such a move to Spurs would not suit somebody of the “talents” of somebody like Kounde.
This isn’t unusual under Levy’s reign. Anybody joining us must expect that there will be no trophies in the Premier League title race or European Champions League competition. Any player that comes to Spurs, if they are lucky, will have to accept the League Cup or an outside chance of winning the FA Cup, nothing more.
The next best thing for a player coming to our ground is to use us as a stepping stone to greater things; for example, Bale, Modric, Defoe, K. Walker, Dimitar Berbatov and the list goes on moved to find trophies and glory. Levy, himself, has overseen one trophy in twenty years as chairman.
Daniel Levy sends terrible vibes to any player that wishes to achieve things; even the England Captain Harry Kane wants to leave to win trophies. Tottenham have become a money-making machine for the money men, while the team has been left to rot in the shadow of the big five in this country and a joke to a broader football audience.
Levy and Lewis need to go if we want to prosper as a football team.

I have been following Spurs since the sixties and work in London. My current job is as a professional writer (working in the media), and I have work connections to the club and had previously worked for them. Including working at the old White Hart Lane stadium.
I also have my own blog and have written for the SpursWeb app & its website.
