In a Premier League highlight game that ended last weekend, Tottenham Hotspur, who dominated the home field, blew a big surprise by beating the defending champion Manchester City 1:0.
After this game, City’s need for Kane became more urgent. Tottenham’s victory will speed up the departure of their ace player.
In this regard, the British media analysis suggests that Tottenham could use Kane’s transfer to follow the example of Liverpool’s sale of Philippe Coutinho. By replicating Liverpool’s success, Spurs can achieve their dream of the championship.
Liverpool’s success story
When Liverpool sold Coutinho to Barcelona for £146 million in January 2018, many predicted that the act would postpone Liverpool’s title dreams once again.
In the previous three seasons, they finished sixth, eighth and fourth respectively. After the sale of their best player, the Premier League title seemed even more out of reach, but the opposite was true.
After the sale of Philippe Coutinho Liverpool invested in three players who played crucial roles for Liverpool in the Champions League and the Premier League in the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons respectively: Alisson, Van Dijk and Fabinho, for a total of £192 million.
They have been the backbone of Klopp’s side during Liverpool’s two glorious seasons. Although the sale of Coutinho has long been forgotten by most, his transfer played a huge role in helping Liverpool succeed.
Spurs’s huge potential
Just like Liverpool, Spurs have struggled to challenge for the Premier League title in recent seasons, finishing fourth, sixth and seventh in the last few seasons. Spurs’ players have proven they can compete with the best in the league.
They can get over £100 million back for a player and then invest it back into the team. So why can’t Spurs do what Liverpool did and challenge for the Premier League title the following season?
In fact, with new director of soccer Paratici and manager Nuno, along with the new players transferred, Spurs will have a team that undoubtedly has the potential to challenge for the Premier League title.
Together with the new financial support and new reinforcements brought by Kane’s transfer, Tottenham might be able to realize their dream of winning the title for 60 years since 1961.
