Clearly, a third week without football is sending people delirious as an audacious transfer report has sent plenty of Tottenham Hotspur fans into overdrive this week.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb, Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is very keen on making an audacious ploy to land Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland at the end of the season.
The 19-year-old, who was born in England, only joined the Bundesliga outfit in January, but it’s claimed the likes of the north Londoners as well as Manchester United and Juventus continue to monitor his progress closely.
Many fans of the Lilywhites have simply laughed off this outrageous claim, and here’s what they have said…
Is it April 1st??

Haaland has continued his prolific form into the yellow colours of Dortmund, scoring 12 times in just 11 appearances, meaning his total for the season now stands at an impressive 40 goals from 33 matches, per Transfermarkt.
Which is why some members of the Spurs faithful cannot believe they’ll be in for him this summer…

Absolutely no chance. Why would he even want to.

The reports were slammed for being “embarrassing” and “ridiculous” whilst one fan claimed they were more likely to sign his dad, Alf-Inge Haaland, who was once on the books of Premier League rivals Manchester City.
It would be a shock to see the Norwegian talisman leave the Bundesliga title-chasers anytime soon, and certainly not to a side that looks more than likely to miss out on Champions League football next season.
Spurs are a massive seven points adrift of the top four and have no cup competitions left to compete for – Mourinho’s transfer budget is sure to take a massive dent as a result, only putting this one even further in doubt.
While in other news, Spurs are the worst in the Premier League at ONE thing…
