Tottenham Hotspur fans aren’t that excited by news that their club has reportedly joined the race to sign Manchester United defender Eric Bailly.
According to the Daily Star, Bailly’s relationship with United boss José Mourinho is deteriorating fast after the Ivorian was subbed off in the 19th minute on Saturday when the manager threw on Juan Mata in order to get his side back into the contest against Newcastle United.
If Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino wants to lure the 24-year-old to the club then he will have to beat North London rivals Arsenal to his signature. The Gunners are also believed to be keeping tabs on the situation, although it’s claimed they could be put off by Bailly’s price-tag.
Spurs fans however aren’t too optimistic about the idea of Bailly fitting into their system, but if centre-back Toby Alderweireld decides to leave then a trade between Spurs and United could become an option.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions from Spurs fans regarding news on a potential swoop for Bailly:
He’d be fantastic with Davinson to be fair…

Errrr No thanks ….We don’t need him

If Spurs want him and Jose doesn’t, swap him for Alderweireld and a bit of cash

He’s useless and injury prone.

Has potential but never plays at 100% I feel

Under actual coaching…. he would be fantastic with @daosanchez26, but only if we can’t get De Ligt
