Tottenham fans react as Real Madrid reportedly eye one of Paratici's summer signings
Tottenham star Bryan Gil has made a brilliant start to life in London, but his form is attracting Real Madrid – and Spurs fans are worried on Twitter.
Gil, 20, has been excellent for Spurs. That is, since joining the club in a deal seen as genius from Fabio Paratici – just £21.6million and Erik Lamela.
Argentina winger Lamela was on his way out anyway, with a year left on his deal. Spurs spent little over £20million to get one of Spain’s wonderkids.
He has lived up to the billing. Despite playing for Spain at the Olympics and returning to club duty late, he has starred when given the chance to do so.
Largely used in the Conference League and Cup competitions, Gil is already on the verge of a league start. Over the break, he even played for Spain.
What are Tottenham fans saying as Madrid reportedly eye Gil?
For any Spanish player, it is hard to turn down Real Madrid. Right now, Carlo Ancelotti’s side sit top of La Liga and are much better than Barcelona.
So, it is a good time to join Madrid, who will be expected to see off the challenge of Atletico Madrid – with Barcelona seemingly out of a title race.
Of course, Gil is unlikely to leave Spurs so soon after joining the club – but with Madrid said to be keen, Gil’s head could quite easily be turned.
Tottenham fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports that Gil has emerged as a target for Madrid – and many are concerned he could go.
