Shocking News : Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy Tried To Stop Arsenal From Signing Ozil

Spanish newspaper El Confidencial have revealed Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy contacted Real Madrid to try and stop Mesut Özil’s transfer to North London rivals Arsenal.

The German completed a £42.4 million move on deadline day to gazump Arsenal’s transfer record by a cool £27 million, however Levy tried his best to stop the Gunners from landing the talented German.

It is believed Levy had inquired about the availability of the former Werder Bremen playmaker during negotiations regarding Gareth Bale but the club declared he was not for sale. However, Bale’s arrival and Real’s need to recoup as much money as possible added with Özil’s own feelings saw the player become available but by the time Levy had called to try and stump the deal, the transfer was already complete.

The revelation comes just days after Levy’s Spurs were defeated by the Gunners with the chairman accused of purposely holding up the deal to prevent Arsenal from signing any of Madrid’s players in time.

Although, a clever act by a clever businessman, his plan ultimately failed as the Emirates side managed to secure a deal for the 24-year old which will ultimately lift Arsenal and could a complete new level to their play.

  1. Stopping a rival club from success will turn against you. Arsenal never try to stop soldado, capoue, eriksen, chadli, and lamela deals; but why on earth is Tottenham trying to stop their neighbours from being successful?

  2. Fellow gooners,

    There is being a astute and there is being astute! Real Madrid didn’t fall for it plus Wenger now knows what chess hands Levy will go too in the future!
    Besides,THFC woud not be able to entice such a WC player TH are not in the champions Cup,etc.Looking at the TH purchases only 3 of those would get into AFC squad in any case.
    Oh anothe joke Harry rednapp says that TH have a stronger squad just as well he is NOT in charge of England!
    Once, Diaby is back hopefully for a good period of time,vermallon,chamberlain and even Bendtner revived also Flamani at his best i know whose squad is BETTER

    AFC is looking a better place to be at!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. spurs will only become bigger then arsenal when they can consistently win a champion league place ahead of arsenal, other then that, arsenal will always outsmart them in every aspect, like the Ozil deal.
