Spurs £5m pounds shy of Boa Morte.
According to Chris Colman, Tottenham attempted to sign Boa Morte at the end of the summer transfer window.
'Boa was about £5million away from joining Tottenham in the summer. What they offered was nowhere near what we valued him at. We had no chance of replacing him for the fee they offered and the longer all the talk went on the price went up. Boa is linked to a move away from the club every time there is a transfer window. ' Coleman said.
The Tottenham way seems to be, go around the clubs offering 'silly money' until they find a club desperate enough to sell their best players for peanuts. They then complain when the media link them to every other player and his dog!
