Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting with delight to the news that Daniel Levy intervened between a potential sale of Lucas Moura to Barcelona.
[@MundoDeportivo] Barcelona made a late attempt to sign Lucas Moura from Tottenham Hotspur this summer but failed to meet the valuation for the Brazilian.

Mundo Deportivo recently reported that the La Liga giants had made a late attempt to take the Brazil international to Spain.
However, it would seem a move was unable to take place because Levy asked for a minimum of €50m (£45m) for the winger and Barcelona were unprepared to meet that valuation.
The 27-year-old has become a key member of Mauricio Pochettino’s side following his £23m move from Paris Saint-Germain in January 2018 (BBC).
In those 18 months or so, Lucas has made 63 appearances for Spurs, scoring 17 goals and providing his team-mates with an additional seven assists (Transfermarkt).
Pochettino described the Brazil international as a ‘superhero’ following his hat-trick heroics for the north London outfit in their Champions League semi-final against Ajax.
Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to the news that Levy intervened and were largely pleased to have seen it happen.
Here are just some of their reactions…
This wouldn’t have gone down well.
