Yay, we have some baseless transfer rumours back in the building! Today's comes via The Metro, which claims that despite a deadline day failing to sign Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho, Andre Villas-Boas and Daniel Levy are working to complete the signing for the January window.
Although sources aren't linked, The Metro does give a tasty idea of how Spurs might clinch a potential transfer early:
"Spurs are still willing to pay £25 million, and will give Porto extra if they sign an exclusivity contract, giving Villas-Boas the first option to buy Moutinho when the transfer window re-opens in the New Year."
We haven't seen many excluvisity contracts given in transfer negotiations, but it would be a way to get in Moutinho early in January for a potential move, rather than facing another bidding war and transfer deadline hand-wringing. The Metro further claims that Chairman Levy will fly to Porto within the next two weeks to finish the deal.
Obviously, after August's saga Moutinho is a well-known player, and he would have a major impact at Spurs. But do you think this is really happening, or just more speculation from the tabloids? Sound off below:
