These Tottenham fans have got this spot on – they do not need Mateo Kovacic and he is not good enough for them anymore. Maybe before he joined Real Madrid, the Croatia international would have been a solid addition to the Spurs midfield, but he has gone backwards in the last couple of years and the fact that he is not performing great for Chelsea lately means that he would be nowhere near getting into Spurs’ midfield. Spanish news outlet AS claims that Real Madrid do not want the playmaker to return to the Bernabeu once his loan at Chelsea ends and that both the Blues and Spurs are eyeing up signing him next summer. If Mauricio Pochettino is going to spend big money on a midfielder next year then surely it will be on a direct replacement for Mousa Dembele, not a playmaker like Kovacic, who is already struggling to make an impact at a top-six Premier League side.

He isn’t good enough

Never going to happen. We won't pay one of the best creative MF in the PL (Eriksen) whats he's worth. We're certainly not going to match or better what Putney are paying him or the fee demanded by Real Madrid.
