What am I guessing ?

That all terms were agreed with Diaz and his club ?

That his agent leaked the details to Liverpool ?

Or that if we'd agreed terms on January 1st he'd still have gone to Liverpool ?


"Tottenham had signed paperwork over a €45m plus €15m deal with Porto. In the end, though, it was Liverpool who took him for reportedly the same figures."

But sure it's all guesswork on my part.
You are just creating things in your mind and guessing against real proof and words from the player's father.
 
Here's another link that only exists in my mind.
:harrylol::harrylol::harrylol:

They hijacked the deal because like Diaz's father said, we dithered too much. Took 6 months to fail with traore Same owner who took months to appoint a manager. This dithering is costing us.

In you own link it says Tottenham were mad because they were working on this deal for months. Everything has to take months. Dithering is what cost us.

Oh dear, talk about cherry picking.

Liverpool were contacted with all the details as soon as the deal was agreed.

So they didn't have to negotiate, they just came in with the same terms.

Plus the fact that Diaz's father said Liverpool was his dream move anyway.
 
I think most people were blinded by the ability of Traore because he was playing for Wolves which are quite defensive with less quality players upfront.
Now at Barcelona he's can run outpace the opposition and pass to better quality strikers, who can score
Conte new this and that his pace and strength would make him an assist machine to the likes of Kane etc and wanted him but as others have said Spurs dithered on to get him or not.
 
He was always good, as long as you don't judge ability to create chances purely by assists. The way a team is structured plays a huge part, Wolves were never built in a way which got the best out of what he did. He is not a player who is good at playing in numerous different styles, he is a get the ball to a touchline, cause havoc and cross a ball type.

In an attacking team with intelligent, high level attacking players to feed off the danger he creates, he is an incredible asset. He will always have lots of sloppy, frustrating moments but he is an unstoppable player. Rui the other night didn't know what to do against him. No fullback does. In a front 3 with Kane & Son, or as a RWB with the space Emerson gets? We'd probably be sat here with a whole bunch more points.

He didnt want to play rwb
 
The time to get Traore was in the summer. I didn’t think him worth 50m. There’s no way Barca, given the utter clusterfuck happening there last summer, would have been competition.
However, once Barca were in the mix in January it was never going to happen regardless of manager or what position he was asked to play. Any other narrative is patently false.
 
The Adama Traoré saga may not be over yet... as Barca has already contacted Raphinha's agent (Deco) regarding a transfer...



...while trying to keep Ousmane Dembele (in the last month or so he's finally started to show his class again)....



Transfer News: Tottenham could have second shot at landing 26-year-old Spanish star​

Tottenham handed Adama Traore transfer boost ahead of summer transfer window​

According to the Spanish news outlet Sport (h/t The Express), Tottenham Hotspur have received a boost as Adama Traore may not stay at Barcelona beyond the 2022 summer transfer window. The English club had tried to sign him in January, but they ended up being piped by the Spanish side.
Barca had signed Traore on an initial long deal which would see him stay at Camp Nou until the end of this season. They have the option to permanently sign him for a fee of around £25million, but it seems that they will not trigger the clause after all. That is because of the bleak financial crisis that has unravelled at the club, causing them to take this stance.


The Catalans want to keep hold of the Spaniard, but they do not want to part ways with such an amount. Much of their doubts is also down to Ousmane Dembele’s resurgence that forced Traore to fall down the pecking order. Dembele is out of contract this summer which means that the La Liga club can only afford to either renew his deal or activate the buy-option for the Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee. As such, Tottenham could be handed an advantage going by this update.

Second chance for Spurs?​

This news could potentially give us another shot at bringing the 26-year-old to N17. What makes things even better for us is that Xavi Hernandez’s side prefer to renew Dembele over permanently signing Traore. The Frenchman is still interested in staying at this current club if he can reach an agreement with his side over an extension.

Dembele had rejected several offers in the past, which does cause some concerns, but we are hopeful that his intentions, coupled with the Blaugrana side’s preference, could pave the way for us to receive a second chance at signing Traore. Antonio Conte is keen to bring the Wolves star to Spurs, with the North London side being long term admirers of the player as well.


Should Traore return to Molineux Stadium, the Wanderers could be forced to part ways with their loanee on a cut-price deal as he will enter the final year of his current contract. Since Conte had plans to use him as a right-wingback, we should back him by getting this deal over the line.

However, there are still some concerning outcomes that we need to be wary of right now. Traore’s agent Jorge Mendes is aware of the complications and is trying to solve the situation at this moment. One such possibility is for the Blaugrana side to include either Trincao, who is currently on loan with Bruno Lage’s side or Riqui Puig, who is keenly admired by the latter.

Now we have to play a waiting game to see how the situation surrounding Traore will develop in the coming months. With so many different possibilities that could occur in the future, it remains to be seen whether we will get a second chance at signing him or not.
