Daniel Levy lived up to his reputation of a man who likes to keep hold of his money, as he brought new £26 million signings Roberto Soldado from Spain on a Ryanair flight, reports the Metro.
There would be no toasting champagne in business class comfort for the soon to be Tottenham striker, as he arrived in London ahead of his medical.
Spurs' chairman Levy is well known for tough negotiating and his only-if-I-deem-it-acceptable attitude towards transfers, but fans might have been forgiven for expecting the man who has become the most expensive purchase in their club's history to arrive with slightly more panache.
Instead it was the financially-friendly Ryanair that got the honour of transporting the Premier League's newest star.
If rumours are to be believed then Levy's coffers, that will be relieved of £26 million once Soldado's transfer is confirmed, could receive a massive injection with Gareth Bale possibly heading to Madrid for as much as £105 million.
