Former footballer and current Sky Sports pundit Danny Mills has made his claim about why Tottenham Hotspur are yet to finalise a deal for any new signings so far in the transfer window.
Club chairman Daniel Levy has accomplished one of his biggest targets, which is opening up Spurs’ beautiful new stadium before last season came to an end.
But the fact still remains that Tottenham have not been able to sign a player in over a year, and that might not sit too well with manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The Argentine made several statements towards the end of last season, which suggested that he was unsure of whether he will remain at the club.
With just two months left before the beginning of next season, Spurs still do not have a clear picture over the future of Pochettino.
And for Danny Mills, the uncertainty surrounding the future of the manager is why Tottenham are yet to get any deals done.
“Of course, all transfers will be up in the air,” he told Football Insider
“Players want to sign because they want to play for Pochettino. If they are unsure if he is still the manager, a lot of players won’t sign.
“Tottenham will not pay the wages of the elite clubs. It will matter massively who the manager and coaching staff is.
“From the club’s point of view, the targets may be players Pochettino wants, so they might wait on pushing deals through at the moment.”
