Moussa Sissoko has been arguably the worst signing of the season at Tottenham and he did himself few favours with his performance last night.

This week he was surprisingly linked with a stunning move to La Liga giants Barcelona, by Spanish news outlet Don Balon.

The unlikely rumours will likely never come to fruition, certainly based on his performances for Spurs this season.

Former Spurs striker Gary Lineker was at least amused by the claims, using Twitter to express his emotion at reading them.

 

His reaction was likely one shared by many Tottenham fans, one of amusement and disbelief.

The Frenchman has been woeful this season, although his Newcastle displays last season were a red flag.

Only his surprisingly good Euro 2016 earned him a summer transfer to Spurs, but Barcelona are likely a lot wiser than Tottenham were and should ignore their attempts to offload him to them.

Sissoko will likely leave this summer, but the only way he will be popping up at the Nou Camp is if he buys a ticket.
