With the deal taking Spurs’ star man Gareth Bale to Real Madrid seemingly all but finalised, we look at why the north London club will be better off without their Welsh wizard.
In his time at the club, Bale has gone on to become a world beater, and it seemed only a matter of time until he would move on to one of the European giants.
Initially you would expect a club who have just lost their top star to be disappointed; however it isn’t the case this time round.
Spurs fans have no reason to be concerned for their future without Bale due to how chairman Daniel Levy and current boss Andre Villas-Boas have come together to bring in some top talent that will make Tottenham more of a team.
Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Etienne Capoue and Nacer Chadli have all so far been brought for a combined total of around £58million.
In addition, Spurs are reportedly close to finalising a deal for Romanian defender Vlad Chiriches, and have also been linked with a £30million move for out-of-favour Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.
If this wasn’t enough Spurs could also gain one of - or even both - Fabio Coentrao and Angel Di Maria as part of the deal for Bale.
Last season Spurs were too reliant on Bale. Despite having the likes of Mousa Dembele and Aaron Lennon, whenever they were in possession, it seemed as though the first choice was to get the ball to Bale even when others were in better positions.
Without the Welshman in the team, Spurs will be more dynamic and as a result their build-up play will become more unpredictable.
Ultimately Spurs fans can expect more from their team this year and the north London club could quite easily be competing for the title if they are to continue going about things the way they are.
