The one thing Jurgen Klopp will finally allow his Liverpool players to do following Champions League glory

It was impossible, if you truly care about Tottenham Hotspur, to watch the Champions League final and not feel frustration boil over. 

Admittedly, it is very hard to imagine a situation where Salah would leave Anfield for Old Trafford given their lack of Champions League football and the fact they finished 31 points adrift in the Premier League table, but that doesn’t tend to stop the Spanish tabloids.

Supporters waited with excitement and anticipation, imagining a number of joyous scenarios that led to Champions League glory. None of those imagined scenarios, though, would have manifested the way reality played out.

The huge (and unlikely) twist in the report comes when the outlet is mentioning the competition Los Blancos face for his signature, specifically naming Manchester United and Bayern Munich as the ‘strongest competitors’.

The complexion of the biggest game in club history, thanks to an inadvertent MoussaSissoko hand ball, irreparably changed within the opening minute of kickoff. The opportunity of actually appreciating the occasion stripped before some supporters even finished their pre-match urination.

Reality, throughout the decades, has proven harsh for Tottenham supporters. Reality, though, is rarely this harsh.

Periodic frustration is part and parcel of being a Spurs supporter. But all of us should take a moment to pay homage to just how far we’ve come in a few short years.

According to a report from Spanish outlet AS, Salahs performances for the Reds over the last two years have earned him a number of admirers among Europe’s elite.

Nobody, even the most devout supporter, expected us to be in the final. Nobody expected us to dominate Dortmund and take a point at the Camp Nou. Nobody expected us to topple Manchester City, arguably the best team in the history of English football. And nobody expected us to awaken from a coma to overturn, in less than 45 minutes, a 0-3 aggregate deficit in Amsterdam.

Real Madrid are the most interested in signing the former Roma and Chelsea winger and tried to move for him last year to replace the outgoing Cristiano Ronaldo.

Tottenham surprised pundits, brought followers to tears and made headlines the world over for their resilience, their refusal to lay down and let the media narrative take its course. Spurs faced elimination with only 10 minutes remaining against Inter, but Christian Eriksen found a way to score a vital winner.

However, they baulked at his asking price of over €200million, but this summer their need to sign a star forward is arguably much greater and more desperate.

Barcelona then had Tottenham on the ropes in the final match of the group stage. Barcelona led 1-0, but this time Lucas Moura, in the 85th minute, took matters into his own hands, stunning the Camp Nou. Yet again Tottenham avoided what many thought was a certain ousting from the Champions League.

We all know what happened in the quarterfinal against Manchester City. Scenes of utter jubilation culminated Spurs most memorable ever European result. And, inconceivably, it was about to get even better. Dubbed as the “miracle in Amsterdam”, Tottenham stamped their place in Champions League folklore by shocking Ajax. It was true poetry in motion, a moment none of us will forget.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane already has complete authority over his squad planning and transfers for this summer as well as a handsome amount to spend. Before agreeing to sign players, the Frenchman has already asked the likes of Gareth Bale, Keylor Navas, Dani Ceballos, Marcos Llorente and Mariano Diaz to leave the club. James Rodriguez will also follow suit, but all the outcasts are yet to find newer destinations for themselves.

Tottenham, about a half dozen times, were diagnosed as legally dead during their 2018-19 Champions League campaign, each time needing a defibrillator to be brought back to life.

Mistakes were made by Mauricio Pochettino in the final. That much is true. But when you take a step back and look at the bigger picture, our beloved Spurs created a transcendent energy that had never been felt before in north London and abroad. We shed tears of joy, were on the edge of our seats throughout. We believed in the impossible, all thanks to our Tottenham Hotspur.

Luka Jovic’s signing has been complex so far, but the player has apparently told Eintracht Frankfurt that he wants to leave only and only for Real Madrid. Despite Eder Militao’s signing, Zidane wants a centre back due to Jesus Vallejo’s unreliability and Getafe’s Djene is the cheap option. Finally, the club will sign either Eriksen or Neymar.

Liverpool lost last season’s Champions League final but got right back on the horse, making the improvements needed to avenge that defeat. Spurs, with the right signings, can replicate that feat.

According to Diario GOL, the club’s first team boss Zinedine Zidane and president Florentino Perez have agreed to sign five more players in addition to Eden Hazard in a bid to rebuild their squad completely after a disastrous campaign. How much money the players will cost remains to be seen, but Real will of course earn quite some cash through their sales.

If that’s not something to be positive about, I’m not sure what is. Because belief is what got us here in the first place, and without belief, which depends on positivity, we’re truly lost.

Eden Hazard’s signing will cost them about 100 million euros and that is imminent to happen while Olympique Lyon superstar Ferland Mendy is set to follow the Chelsea man as well. The left back is not the only French player that Real Madrid will sign because Zinedine Zidane wants Paul Pogba too, and has prioritised the Red Devil over Christian Eriksen.
