Tottenham fans on Twitter aren’t expecting a marquee signing this summer

Tottenham fans on Twitter aren’t expecting a marquee signing this summer

After going over 12 months without signing a single player, you could understand it if Tottenham fans were angling for a big transfer. However, as Zinedine Zidane has taken the Real Madrid job, Alasdair Gold has previewed the effect it could have in terms of a marquee signing in North London and the fans are refusing to have any of it.

Summer after summer, season after season, Tottenham Hotspur fans dream of signing players like Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic, Isco and Luka Modric, yet they all know that those dreams will never be any more than just that. The thought of bringing in a huge name from Los Blancos is a lovely one, yet the logistics of a move like that just don’t stack up.

The report from football.london mentions wages and the fact that Gareth Bale is on a reported £650,000 per week before tax means that he’d be facing taking up to a 70% wage cut if he was to return to North London, something that just will not happen. It simply isn’t viable as far as the Lilywhites are concerned, and they don’t want to get talking about it and get their hopes up just to be disappointed.

With that in mind, here you can read our realistic Lilywhites’ responses to the Alasdair Gold:

The fans all seem to be in agreement on this one and have little faith in bringing any kind of marquee transfer into their new stadium ahead of the 2019/20 season.
