Spurs have tabled offer for Remy, but don't get your hopes up yet

Jamie McDonald

This is because Loic Remy loves money more than pretty much anything else.

Triple newsbombs this morning courtesy of the agent of QPR forward Loic Remy, who has claimed via France Football that Tottenham Hostpur have made a 'concrete offer' to his client for a summer transfer. Having scored 14 League  goals on loan at Newcastle last season, the French striker is angling for a permanent switch to a top club and Spurs appear to have been the first to have pulled the trigger. Amazing news, right?! We're not even into June yet and already Spurs seem to have already made a move for a solid, Premiership-proven centre forward. Maybe this time around, the latest transition phase will all shake down differently. Maybe we're finally going to make the top four our permanent home. Maybe Ossie's Dream is finally going to come true again, etc. etc. etc.

There is of course a spanner in the works of all of this, and that is that Loic Remy is an unrepentant mercenary whose first and foremost thought when negotiating a move to a new club is how big the trucks that will be backing his payday up into his house will be. Take it away, France-based journalist Matt Spiro.

So there you have it- Loic has the offer from Spurs, but he's waiting to see if either of our two local rivals, both of whom have the capacity to pay him way over what we would, will make a move first, with the richest of the three obviously being the one he's, quote, 'dreaming of'. Of course, his motivation here could always be winning trophies, of which Chelsea collected precisely as many as Tottenham last season whilst Arsenal picked up their first in over a decade a few weeks back.

I don't know about you, but I'm simply buzzing about this whole story.
