Dele Alli may have just hinted to Tottenham Hotspur supporters that the north London club are set to complete reported moves for Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale – by liking a supporter’s Tweet about the Real Madrid duo.
Some reports claim that Tottenham could announce the signings of both Bale and Reguilon on Thursday, with the latter expected to join Spurs for a permanent fee of £27million. The Mail claim a medical for Reguilon is pencilled in on Thursday.
A deal for Reguilon is expected to include a buyback clause which Marca say could last for two years – the same length of time as Marcelo’s current Real deal. Bale, meanwhile, is expected to return on loan, with Real subsidising the Welshman’s wages.
Now, Alli – who has been linked with a move to Real in a swap deal for Bale – has hinted that Tottenham are close to both signings by liking a fan’s Tweet on Twitter. The Tweet, below predicted the starting XI with both new signings included.

Reguilon is expected to join the club and rival Ben Davies for the left-back slot, while Danny Rose is nearing a move to Serie A side Genoa – as per the Star. Ryan Sessegnon is preferred further forward, while Dennis Cirkin is still a rookie.
Bale, meanwhile, offers cover on either flank and can play in the number 10 role or provide cover for Harry Kane. Now, Alli may have hinted that both players could be about to join Spurs, by liking the above Tweet.
