CORONAVIRUS is sweeping across the globe and the Premier League has been postponed as a result.
And that means Harry Kane may have played his last game for Spurs, with England's captain reportedly finding a potential transfer to Juventus very enticing.
Follow all the latest build-up, gossip and transfer news below…
BALE OUT OPTION
Real Madrid are reportedly ready to lose Gareth Bale on a free transfer this summer.
Marca claims Zinedine Zidane does not want the Welsh winger, 30, in his squad next season.
Bale came close to joining Chinese Super League moneybags Jiangsu Suning last summer before the deal collapsed.
And Real are keen to ensure they can finally get Bale off the books once and for all by waiving a transfer fee for any interested parties, which could alert Manchester United and Tottenham.
That’s because they fear teams are reluctant to meet the forward’s £350,000-a-week wages.
By getting rid of a transfer fee, Real believe they can offload Bale without any issues in July.
And it would save them paying him for the final two years of his Bernabeu contract, which expires in 2022.
SEASON TICKET RENEWALS
In case you missed this earlier, Spurs have put back season ticket renewals, because of uncertainty over coronavirus.
Tottenham had initially wanted to open season ticket renewals today, with the window set to close on May 1.
But they have changed their plans and have not announced new dates yet for renewals, with uncertainty over the end of this league season.
The club said in a statement: “We are acutely aware of the uncertain, difficult times we are all living through along with the subsequent disruption to the footballing calendar and have, therefore, taken the decision to postpone the opening of these renewals whilst we await greater clarity.
“We shall keep the opening date under review and will update you as and when a decision is taken to start renewals.”
REACH FOR THE SKY
SKy Sports are giving customers the chance to pause their subscriptions for free to save them shelling out for cancelled events.
The coronavirus outbreak has seen the vast majority of sporting fixtures postponed or scrapped entirely.
And with it, many fans who fork out each month to watch Sky Sports’ coverage put pressure on the broadcaster to give them some leniency when it came to their monthly tariff.
Now Sky have relented by offering their consumers to put a temporary stop on their TV deal to get rid of the currently-needless sports package.
The company said: “While we expect that many of the recently postponed sports events will eventually go ahead, if you wish to pause your sports subscription in the meantime you will not be charged a fee to do so or be held to any notice period.
“Meanwhile we continue to provide high quality content across all of our 11 sports channels.”
EZE DOES IT
Tottenham have their eye on Queens Park Rangers star Eberechi Eze.
Top scout Brian Carey saw the midfielder, 21, in dazzling form in their 3-1 win at Preston last Saturday.
And now Spurs are emerging as clear favourites to nab him.
QPR want around £20million and that price tag has already put off Sheffield United and Crystal Palace.
SHOW GOES ON
Amazon are continuing to film at Tottenham’s training ground despite coronavirus halting the season, reports have claimed.
Spurs players are featuring in the web giant’s ‘All or Nothing’ documentary, which follows a team through the course of a season.
Already it has been there for Mauricio Pochettino’s sacking, Jose Mourinho’s appointment and Eric Dier’s unbelievable bust-up with a fan.
That all promises to be unmissable drama – unlike the current filming of players during coronavirus.
Cameras at Hotspur Way are still rolling despite the league being shut out until April 3 – at the earliest.
The Athletic say that the club’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic will be captured in exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
