This source suggests that Spurs are about to launch an audacious raid to recapture their former star striker!
SPURS are trying to re-sign Liverpool’s Robbie Keane.
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp wants to test how much patience Rafa Benitez has lost with the striker, who was an unused sub during yesterday’s 3-1 win at Blackburn.
But even if Rafa looked to cash in, the Anfield board would need convincing of the merits, as the Merseysiders’ would inevitably have to accept a loss.
They agreed to pay Spurs £20m in instalments, which means Redknapp could offer part of the summer fee and waive the estimated £10m still owed.
Last season he formed one of best partnerships in the Premier League with Dimitar Berbatov but could not resist the lure of Anfield.
But he has only scored four goals for the Reds, has played 90 minutes just three times and been substituted 15 times. (News of the World)
A lot has been made of Robbie’s in ability to wow the Anfield crowd but it is of course early days and the Irishman hasn’t exactly had much of a chance to gel with Fernando Torres so I am confident that any attempt by Harry Redknapp to try to re-sign Keane will be rebuffed by Rafa. The former Spurs man will himself be keen to prove his doubters wrong but clearly he won’t be able to do that from the bench but at the same time Benitez has little choice to use other alternatives with his new signing failing to really come up with the goods. Do Liverpool fans think that their summer signing will come good?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
