Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy “would not wince at paying any cost” to bring Julian Nagelsmann to the club if he believed he was the right man to succeed Jose Mourinho.

That is the view of former White Hart Lane number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the world-record fee it would take to acquire the services of the 33-year-old from RB Leipzig.

Sky Sports reported on Monday afternoon that Nagelsmann has agreed personal terms with Bayern Munich, with the two German clubs now discussing a fee.


Football Insider understands Spurs made contact with Nagelsmann last week and he is the club’s number one choice to take their vacant manager’s position.

RB Leipzig want a world-record 25million Euros for their manager and Robinson is adamant this would not phase Daniel Levy.

“Daniel Levy has been outstanding with the deals that he has done over the years,” he told Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs.

“He has put the club on such a stable financial footing and he deserves a lot of credit for that. The training ground and the stadium are amazing.

“He gets a lot of unfair stick. Yes, he was part of the plans for a European Super League and he will have to take the criticism that comes with that because there has and will be backlash.

“If you look at his tenure as a whole he has always backed managers in the transfer market and Tottenham have always been at the forefront of his mind.

“If he thinks Nagelsmann if the right man for the club he would not wince at paying any cost.”
