Daniel Levy’s no-nonsense transfer tactics have been revealed, from speaking in codes and dressing to offering agents just water
DANIEL LEVY’S incredible transfer techniques have been revealed – as he wrestles with his choice for Tottenham’s next manager.
The Spurs chairman is said to be speaking in encrypted form to keep the names of wanted players secret even from his own staff – and he’d love a world full of robots.

Levy’s “obsessive” behavior reportedly involves even stranger and harsher tactics than one might already suspect, including offering agents nothing but water.
In a blow to United’s hopes of landing Harry Kane, he has reportedly vowed never to sell anyone to a Manchester club again as he regrets Kyle Walker’s £45million move to City in 2017.
The Mail reveals insiders’ verdict on the 61-year-old, who is the Premier League’s longest-serving supremo.
Levy is back in the spotlight as he’s practically alone pondering Antonio Conte’s successor.
Tottenham chief executive Fabio Paratici resigned on Friday after Fifa gave him a worldwide ban from the sport after old club Juventus were found guilty of misaccounting in January.
Conte and Jose Mourinho were Levy’s previous choices.
The current leaders are the dismissed Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann and the former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
And as Levy weighs his options, he may be more focused on his head than his heart – according to a source who said: “Daniel would prefer the world to be full of robots.”

This insider added, “He can be great one on one. Sympathetic and open.
“But he struggles socially, especially in groups. He’s happiest when he’s stuck his head on his phone or emailing and getting things done.”
It’s understood that Levy allocates numbers like A1 and A2 for transfer targets and his tough negotiating skills are helping Spurs do well financially.
It means he received a world-record fee of £85million for Gareth Bale and is one reason Captain Kane has previously stayed rather than join Pep Guardiola’s City
But Spurs are said to have lost deals because agents are fed up with technical details.
Now fans will be excited to see who he names as his next manager, if he can keep Kane through the summer and if he will invest to end a 15-year trophy drought.
