Hey, remember those rumors that had Tottenham Hotspur potentially making a bid for Roma striker Mattia Destro, possibly at the expense of Roberto Soldado or Emmanuel Adebayor? Well, we can scratch that striker off the list of potential additions to Spurs' striker stable. AC Milan has tweeted that apparently Destro is currently undergoing a medical ahead of joining i Rossoneri.

Destro to Spurs never did seem like a transfer that was extremely likely to happen, so this has more of a feeling of inevitability than disappointment. It's also a cautionary tale (along with Adrien Rabiot, Leando Damiao, Willian, etc.) as to why you should never fully believe transfer rumors until they've been announced on Tottenham Hotspur's website or Twitter feed.

As the end of the transfer window looms ever closer, it's looking more and more like Spurs may not be signing anyone except for DeAndre Yedlin. As the Dread Pirate Roberts said to Inigo Montoya, "Get used to disappointment."
