Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest social media post from Spurs journalist Alasdair Gold on the north London club’s reported transfer interest in Real Madrid defender Eder Militao. 

Real Madrid-oriented outlet Defensa Central recently claimed that Zinedine Zidane was open to allowing the Brazilian to move on amid talk of possible interest from Spurs over a loan move.

However, this comes as Gold shared a post on his official Twitter page saying that Militao is a “good player but not someone Spurs are looking to move for at this time”.

How well can you remember Spurs' season so far? 1. Who is Spurs' top scorer in all competitions so far this season?

This post then gathered a lot of replies from Spurs fans who were quick to share their thoughts on this update from Gold.

So, what did these Spurs fans make of this comment from Alasdair Gold on Eder Militao? 

“what a buzz kill”

“Why you always gotta spoil everything” 

@KingKane_20

“Yep, we’re signing no one when we desperately need a CB…. The joys of being a Spurs fan” 

@JBlincoTHFC

“FUMING” 

@OGlazebrook

“Game over”

“Aaaaaand that’s the end of that particular link”

Real Madrid signed the defender back in 2019 from FC Porto for a fee of £45 million. Since then, the Brazilian has gone on to make just 23 appearances for the Spanish club (per Transfermarkt) – and despite his market value almost halving over that time, it is undeniable that Eder Militao would arrive in the Premier League with a wealth of experience, especially when considering the former Sao Paulo man is only set to turn 23 next week.

Do you think Spurs need to sign a defender this month?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking at the replies to this post from Gold, it appears that these Spurs fans are not happy with the club apparently not looking at signing this month.

Given how plenty of fans were delighted to see the club linked to him when previous links emerged with the centre-back, it is clear why Gold’s pretty blunt dismissal of the rumours come as a hammer blow to these supporters’ hopes of welcoming Eder Militao to north London.

However, given how the 22-year-old, who is currently valued at £27 million, has earned himself a fairly uninspiring season rating of 6.69/10 for his performances in La Liga so far this season, perhaps not pursuing him would be a smart move from the north London club.
