Tottenham Hotspur fans have been expressing their disbelief at reports concerning Real Madrid central defender Raphael Varane.
Could Tottenham seriously sign Varane?
According to El Des Marque, the Lilywhites are eyeing a move for the France international defender ahead of a potential transfer in the January window.
It is being reported by the Spanish publication that manager Jose Mourinho has ‘requested’ an offer be made for the 26-year-old.
Varane is said to be at the top of a list collated by the north London outfit with the Lilywhites ready to offer €80m (roughly £68m) for the player, a bid which isn’t thought to be enough to persuade Los Blancos into selling him.
The news comes amid the contract extension of Belgium international Toby Alderweireld, who has signed a new deal up until 2023.
Fans aren’t feeling hopeful over a deal for the La Liga ace as they took to Twitter to react to the news.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
I’m sure he’ll be attracted by the bumper £40k/week contract and the opportunity to test himself in the Europa League.
