Gary Lineker laughs off reported interest in Tottenham attacker on Twitter
By Harvey Byrne
Former Tottenham striker and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker has laughed off a report stating that AC Milan and Real Madrid are interest in signing Spurs man Moussa Sissoko.
Spanish news outlet Don Balon claimed on Wednesday that the European giants were looking to bring in the 27-year-old attacker, while Barcelona had also been offered the Frenchman.
The report has understandably been met with a lot of doubt by fans and pundits with Sissoko struggling to make an impact at White Hart Lane this season following a £30million summer transfer from Newcastle.
It would appear that ex-England international Lineker is also of the same mindset and after seeing the report he responded simply via his personal Twitter account with four crying with laughter emojis.

Sissoko has played in 33 matches in all competitions for Tottenham following his mega money move, but he has been unable to find the back of the net so far.

Newcastle fans were surprised that their club managed to receive as much as they did for the 50-time capped France international last summer and it would appear that Sissoko is frowned upon in the same way in north London.
In other Tottenham news, Spurs fans aired their disappointment at Sissoko starting ahead of the Leicester clash.
