Tottenham Hotspur could be shaping up for one of the biggest transfer windows in the club’s history.

Harry Kane wants to leave, that’s no secret, and while the club will do everything they can in order to keep him, there’s every chance that a bid comes in that they just can’t turn down.

£150m has been touted as the magic number, and that fee would absolutely smash the British transfer record, which is still the £89m spent on Paul Pogba by Manchester United.

Of course, after you make a record sale, you have plenty of money to play with, and a mini-rebuild is able to take place, and that’s an exciting period for any club.

Every Spurs fan will remember that period at their club after they sold Gareth Bale when Daniel Levy went on a spending spree, signing numerous players who didn’t live up to expectations.

Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela turned out ok, but the likes of Nacer Chadli, Paulinho, Roberto Soldado, Vlad Chiriches and Etienne Capoue weren’t up to scratch and were swiftly moved on.

The Gareth Bale fee was largely squandered by Daniel Levy back in 2013, and there’s reason to believe that Fabio Paratici could do the same with any windfall received from the sale of Harry Kane.

Indeed, Paratici has been in this situation before, he was the man in charge of Juventus’ transfers when Pogba went to Manchester United for that world-record fee, and it’s fair to say he didn’t make the most of the financial benefits of that sale.

That summer Paratici signed the likes of Marko Pjaca, Mattia Caldara, Mario Lemina, Tomas Rincon and Riccardo Orsolini, while Gonzalo Higuain joined for a blockbuster £75m fee.

Not a single one of those players lasted more than two years at Juventus, before being sold or loaned out, making a minimal impact at the club and largely being sold for losses.

The question Spurs fans have to ask this summer is, can Paratici be trusted to reinvest the Kane fee sensibly? Looking at his spending spree after selling Pogba at Juventus, you have to believe that the answer may be no.

Of course, Paratici could easily end up bucking the trend this summer, but it looks as though he could be about to repeat Levy’s mistakes after Bale was sold to Real Madrid.
