Tottenham fans on Twitter ready to sell Mousa Dembele as age catches up with him

A lot of Spurs fans have been discussing the future of Mousa Dembele today. The 30-year-old midfielder bowed out of the World Cup yesterday as his Belgian side found themselves on the wrong end of a close fought 1-0 to France and after the game, some Spurs fans have been wondering how much Dembele has left in the tank.

Over the last three years, Mousa Dembele has been a pivotal part of Tottenham’s first team. The Belgian has the ability to control and dictate a game even when he’s not on his best form. The fans saw the best of Dembele last season during their Champions League tie with Juventus. They lost to the Italian champions 4-3 over two legs but Dembele was the man of the tie, bossing a tough Juve midfield and getting his teammates in the game.

Unfortunately, though, it seems like the ex-Fulham man’s best days are behind him as previous injuries have begun to take their toll. The midfielder is only 30-years-old but has started to decline and with reports that Spurs are looking to sell him this summer, it shows just how cutthroat football can be at times. No one in North London wants to see the midfielder go but if a replacement becomes available who would improve the side then Mauricio Pochettino simply has to take it.

From this, it’s clear to see that the Spurs fans know he needs to go but they’ll be sad when he does leave.
