Well we left it late as usual to try to sign a player on deadline day and it seems as though we will have to wait untill Van Der Vaart will be confirmed or not as a Spurs player. Below is how I think the phone call went.
Harry – Watch Ya Jose its Harry
Jose – Hello Mr Redknapp how may I help you
Harry – Well Jose I don’t know if you know but the transfer window closes here in England in 5 mins and I need to sign a player, have you got any for sale me old mucker.
Jose – Ah Harry I am the special one and I might be able to help you out
Harry – Triffic Jose who have you got?
Jose – I have Rafael Van Der Vaart for sale Harry, would you like to buy him?
Harry – Oh I don’t know much about him, haven’t you got any players I have previously managed for sale?
Jose – Only Diarra but you already have signed one ex gooner this summer
Harry – Oh yeah good point, ok tell me more about Van Der Vaart
Jose – Well he is Dutch and played in the World Cup Final
Harry – OOOHH World Cup Final, ok I will take him because we only have 3 mins left before the window shuts, can you put him on the phone?
Jose – Not so fast Harry let’s talk money, I want £20mil
Harry – No chance make it £10mil
Jose – Ah Harry I heard you were a bit of a wheeler dealer
Harry – I’M NOT A F**KING WHEELER DEALER I AM A F**KING FOOTBALL MANAGER , F**K OFF *hangs up*
Jose – *rings back* Ok Harry I am sorry I was only joking because I am the special on remember.
Harry – Now we only have one minute left and I haven’t even spoken to Van Der Vaart yet, you will have to forge his signature Jose and fax me the paper work over, I will throw you a bung for your efforts.
Jose – Ok Harry you can have him for £8mil
Harry – Triffic stuff Jose but if Daniel Levy asks tell him we agreed £10mil ok?
Jose – Whatever Harry I am the special one, thank you
So there we have it, now it’s the waiting game.Follow @TrfficTottenham
