Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation regarding Lionel Messi.
What’s the story?
Messi is leaving Barcelona, and it seems that Tottenham have been linked with the Argentina international forward.
The 34-year-old is a free agent now, and there is no doubt that all clubs would love to sign him this summer.
Well, maybe not Real Madrid.
Tottenham are being linked with Messi, although we must stress that there are no credible reports in the English media that suggest that the North London club want to sign the Barcelona legend.
The Athletic are reporting that journalists in Argentina have been asking about speculation that Tottenham would try to sign the former La Liga and Champions League winner.
“Back in Argentina, journalists close to the Messi entourage asked about speculation that Tottenham would attempt to sign Messi as they faced losing their own talisman Harry Kane (a target for Manchester City), underlining the weird and wonderful methods that can be used to exert pressure in a high-stakes transfer,” states the report in The Athletic.
What are Tottenham Hotspur fans saying?
As you can see from the tweets below, Tottenham fans do not actually believe that Messi will come.
Well, some of them anyway.
The Argentine is reportedly on his way to Paris Saint-Germain, who are now managed by former Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino.
Messi himself said today the Ligue 1 club are a possibility.
BBC Sport have reported that Messi’s representatives are in talks with PSG.
