The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been somewhat accustomed to losing their best players to Real Madrid over the past few years.
Upon the departures of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, the usually lively tavern was a solemn place to White Hart Lane goers, though the mood around the club has changed in recent years.
With Mauricio Pochettino at the helm and a vibrant young squad closing the gap on arch-rivals Arsenal, things are on the up for Spurs.
However, when reading reports from the Sun strewn on the bar, unwelcome feelings were again brought up.
They claim that Los Blancos are plotting a shock raid once more, this time for goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
The Frenchman is currently away at EURO 2016 with France and legendary compatriot Zinedine Zidane is said to be a keen admirer of the 29-year old.
Having missed out on David De Gea last season, the Champions League winners are said to be ready to hunt for a new stalwart between the sticks in the Premier League once more, despite the excellent form of Keylor Navas in the Spanish capital.
Can Spurs really afford to Lloris at all? How many TT pints must they have downed to even consider it?
