Daniel Levy has inisisted that the club will not sell any players that manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to keep, insisting Spurs are a different club than in the past.
Toby Alderweireld is the latest key player to be linked with a Tottenham exit after a source reported that contract talks with the Belgian centre-back broke down last month.
Levy was asked if the rise in gate receipts from this season’s Champions League matches at temporary home Wembley Stadium, placement money for the Premier League and the new television broadcast deal would provide more leeway for wages. The chairman was non-committal but suggested the club spends around 50 percent of all income on players without maintaining a fixed ratio.
Levy also admitted that the club’s new stadium project had increased in cost and hit a minor delay but said he expected it to be ready for the start of next season as planned.
The club has previously said the roof would be installed in late January or early February, but according to the minutes from the meeting, Levy said that the “compression ring had been completed last weekend and the roof lift was scheduled to be completed in the next fortnight.”
According to Levy, bad weather and high winds were the reason for the delay, but the club are still expected to be playing in the new stadium next season “and would be extremely disappointed were this not the case.
