Welcome to transfer deadline day, when the dumbest of rumors will fly. First up is "Arsenal ‘line up shock transfer deal for Tottenham goalie Hugo Lloris.’"
Yes, you're supposed to laugh.
I mean, when the Metro wrote it, they didn't intend for you to laugh. Nor did L'Equipe, who the Metro apparently got it from, although it is nowhere to be found on the L'Equipe site. But it's a real transfer rumor now, as real as your chuckles.
Arsenal apparently want Lloris. That makes sense, seeing as Wojciech Szczesny has had a rough season and David Ospina hasn't exactly shined. Why wouldn't the Gunners want one of the better goalkeepers in the world?
It's the part where Tottenham Hotspur would have to sell him that it gets funny. That's Arsenal's biggest rivals Tottenham Hotspur. That's competing for a Champions League place Tottenham Hotspur. That's have a cup final in one month Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur might not be in a selling mood with their best player. Just a guess.
And that guess leads to laughs.
On the count of three:
