Mourinho’s transfer plans in tatters amid coronavirus crisis

first_img Spurs are paying the debts attached to their £1bn stadium and the lack of match-day revenue, which has grown significantly since their new ground opened, is not helping. The American football and boxing dates that have since been cancelled at the stadium have also arrived as a blow. Levy, speaking earlier this week, hinted at the lack of transfer action, saying: ‘When I read or hear stories about player transfers this summer like nothing has happened, people need to wake up to the enormity of what is happening around us. ‘We need to realise that football cannot operate in a bubble. We maybe the eighth largest club in the world by revenue according to the Deloitte survey but all that historical data is totally irrelevant as this virus has no boundaries.’ Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hinted at a lack of transfer action earlier in the week Read Al;so: Klopp tells pals Liverpool will be last club job Securing a naming rights deal for their stadium — which celebrates the first anniversary of its first competitive game today — this summer would have helped inject significant cash into Tottenham’s coffers.
