Wednesday’s Spurs back pages: Willian imminent, Lamela & Coentrao likely as Bale departs
Befitting a day of frenzied Tottenham transfer gossip, Wednesday’s back pages are dominated by news of who Andre Villas-Boas’ side will sign in the coming days.
All are in agreement: Willian will sign for Spurs in the coming days, likely to be on Wednesday with the Brazilian already having undergone at least part of his medical.
The Daily Star suggest Erik Lamela will follow Willian to Spurs, although reports via Sky Italia this evening claim no deal has been agreed with Roma.
Whilst the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail don’t stick their neck out too far, the latter suggest Gareth Bale will move to Real Madrid in the coming days, it is The Sun with the most eye catching back page.
“6 of the Best for Bale” confirms that Fabio Coentrao looks almost certain to be part of the deal that takes the Welsh forward to the Bernabeu.
Wednesday’s back pages are below.
