Tottenham vow not to sell stars before next season

The Spurs chief took advantage of his visit to the Premier League club's new stadium, which is now under construction, to signal his intention to play hardball with any would-be suitors planning moves to sign his stars.

After a poor start to life away from White Hart Lane - albeit for 12 months - Tottenham have made Wembley their home away from home in impressive fashion.

"The fact Aaron spoke publicly about the issue can inspire people around he world, not only in football, through him or through his behaviour, to get some help", continued Pochettino, who chose to speak in Spanish while his assistant Jesus Perez translated.

Alli has been a key player for Mauricio Pochettino since arriving from MK Dons in 2015, scoring 41 goals in 122 games. Sure. His quality, mentality and professionalism is top. "It will be hard to beat Greaves but he is still 24 and can play ten or 12 years".

"I hope he will break every record".

MAURICIO POCHETTINO says Harry Kane will overtake Jimmy Greaves as Tottenham's all-time leading goalscorer. They need a long-term replacement for Ronaldo's goals, while Karim Benzema has only weighed in with two league goals this season, and their recent lack of big-spending is comparable to a smoking volcano waiting to erupt. "It's about how I believe and try to make things happen". "We are likely to see the Toffees' new signing Cenk Tosun at some point - even if boss Sam Allardyce doesn't start with him up front - but it will take him some time to adjust to the pace of the Premier League".

"Harry is special. It's not the profile of a typical offensive player - he is special". Sometimes you want players to stay but the player says, 'no, gaffer I need to change, I need to wear different colours'.

One player that will not be joining Spurs is, of course, Ross Barkley who joined London rivals Chelsea instead.

This decision to make no new singings is understandable from Tottenham's perspective as prices of players often go up highly during this winter period, which makes nearly every signing financially unsound. Look at how Tottenham was 18 years ago and how it is today.
