Gary Lineker played for both Tottenham Hotspur and Barcelona.

Gary Lineker has told The Mirror that Barcelona against Tottenham Hotspur would be the dream Champions League final for him.

Lineker was on the books of Spanish giants Barcelona from 1986 until 1989 before he made the move to North London outfit Tottenham.

The former England international, though, has also stated that he would be happy if Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City contest the Champions League final this season.

PSG and City are two of the best teams in the world and are playing brilliant football this season.

“Barcelona v Tottenham would be the dream final for me because I played for both of them, but I would be perfectly satisfied with PSG v City,” Lineker told The Mirror. “That would be an unbelievable spectacle.”

Barcelona are serial winners and have some of the best players in the world, including a certain Lionel Messi, and it should not come as a surprise to anyone if they reach the final of the Champions League yet again.

Tottenham have progressed to the last-16 stage of the Champions League as winners of the group that also has Real Madrid.

While it is hard to envisage Spurs reaching the final, stranger things have happen in football.
