Tottenham Hotspur were left upset after Everton blamed them for their financial woes due to the Richarlison transfer.
Relations between Everton and Tottenham Hotspur now appear to be strained after claims emerged about Richarlison’s move to north London.
That’s according to the Daily Mailwho claim that Tottenham are not happy with Everton’s claims.
The Toffees were hit with an immediate 10-point deduction for financial breaches.
Everton will of course appeal this decision and hope that the decision is overturned as they are now fighting against relegation.
Tottenham Hotspur are unhappy with Richarlison’s claims
An interesting note from the Premier League report The situation was that the sale of Richarlison was a major factor in Everton’s problems.
Everton had planned to sell Richarlison for £80m, but it is believed Tottenham took advantage of Everton’s financial problems to complete a ‘tough deal’ for £60m.
Unsurprisingly, Tottenham have taken a rather dim view of these claims.
The Daily Mail claim that Tottenham sees Everton’s stance as “absurd” and could damage the relationship between the two clubs.
Everton felt the £20m valuation difference on Richarlison was seriously damaging their financial situation, but the Premier League weren’t exactly sympathetic.
Tottenham point out that Richarlison still represents their club’s record signing if all bids are met and believe Everton could have sold other players after receiving a lower transfer fee for the Brazilian.
Unfortunately, Dele was caught in the crossfire
Everton may be upset, but there have been many, many cases where clubs benefited from other teams struggling financially.
Tottenham don’t seem to have done much wrong here, but we fear for Dele.
The report notes that Everton and Tottenham have recently held talks about restructuring the deal that resulted in Dele joining the Toffees in 2022.
Everton will have to pay Tottenham £10m if Dele plays seven more games, a fee Everton will struggle to pay and which will mean Dele sits on the sidelines.
Spurs want to do right by their former player, but the relationship between the two clubs could now deteriorate and impact Dele’s future.
This is a sad state of affairs; Dele has been through so much in the last few years and we want him to shine again.
Let’s hope an agreement can be reached and Dele can play again soon as it would be sad to see him affected by this feud.
