'Something special' - Tottenham fans react to Levy statement on potentially huge transfer

Tottenham fans have taken to social media to react to club chairman Daniel Levy failing to rule out a sensational move for former star Gareth Bale at a fans forum event held on Monday.

The club invited a handful of fans to attend the insider event, at which Levy was joined by manager Mauricio Pochettino and club captain Hugo Lloris, to ask questions to the trio.

One fan in attendance, who goes by the Twitter account THFC1976, stated that when probed about the possibility of Bale returning to the club, Levy refused to make a definitive statement over what would be a huge transfer for Spurs, instead responding with a “maybe”.

With Levy failing to quash rumours of a potential swoop for the 28-year-old, fans immediately turned to Twitter to voice their views on what the chairman had to say, with many holding out hope that the club could pull off such a major deal with Real Madrid.
