CORONAVIRUS is sweeping 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 interested in a potential transfer to Juventus.
Follow all the latest build-up, gossip and transfer news below…
Tottenham have announced their financial results for the year ended June 30, 2019.
The North Londoners' total revenue was up by an eyewatering £80million, from £380.7million in 2018 to £460.7million.
Much of this owed to the remarkable run to the Champions League final, with revenue from the competition up at £108.4million compared to £62.2million the year before.
Total profit after all charges including interest and tax was £68.6m.
DIER THE CRIER
Spurs hard-man Eric Dier may look the part as a defensive bruiser.
But in a recent interview with the club's official website, the 26-year-old revealed that he sometimes gets emotional when watching the big screen.
He admitted: ” I cried watching the film ‘Life Itself’. I bawled my eyes out and my brother caught me! He took the mickey out of me.
“I get emotional watching films, what can I say?”
Premier League clubs will be allowed to sign players on temporary contracts if the season continues beyond the expiry of their current deals, according to reports.
Hundreds of players including stars at Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham have contracts that expire this summer.
The Premier League is currently suspended until April 4 with the EFL on hold until April 3.
However, there are fears both will have to extend their delays further as football attempts to combat the spread of coronavirus.
Euro 2020 was postponed by a year on Tuesday to allow domestic seasons to be completed over the summer if possible.
But this may lead to a contractual nightmare with many players further down the pyramid fearing for their livelihoods.
In a bid to combat such a situation, football authorities like the FA, Premier League, EFL and PFA are expected to be flexible and allow temporary deals in order to complete the season, according to the Telegraph.
BIGGEST BATTLE YET
In the last half hour, Daniel Levy has issued a statement on Tottenham's website and it's pretty worrying news.
It read: “We are painfully aware that it seems wholly inappropriate to be giving any attention to the prior year’s financial results at a time when so many individuals and businesses face worrying and difficult times. We are however legally required to announce these by 31 March 2020.
“We are all facing uncertain times both at work and in our personal lives. I have spent nearly 20 years growing this Club and there have been many hurdles along the way – none of this magnitude – the COVID-19 pandemic is the most serious of them all.
“You will have noticed that we have, as a necessity, ceased all fan-facing operations. With such uncertainty we shall all need to work together to ensure the impact of this crisis does not undermine the future stability of the Club. This will include working with the wider football industry and its stakeholders to seek to restore the season – but only when it is safe and practical to do so.
“Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our staff, players, partners, supporters and their families.
“We shall look to come out of this stronger and more resilient than ever. Our hope is that the virus peaks over the coming weeks and that we have a summer to enjoy.
“Please look after yourselves and stay safe and healthy. This is more important than football.”
WILL I NEVER
Tottenham are reportedly set to beat north London rivals Arsenal to the signature of Chelsea winger Willian.
The Brazilian is set to leave Stamford Bridge on a free transfer with his contract up at the end of the season.
And a reunion with his former boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham is the most likely destination, according to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo.
Willian has been at Chelsea since Mourinho signed him from Anzhi in Russia back in 2013.
