It was a season of unlikely heroes for Tottenham last year, as they somehow managed to battle against a lack of stadium, no transfers, a huge injury list, and a fixture pile-up to carve out a successful season.
Not only did the Lilywhites make the top four for the fourth year running, they also managed to make it to the Champions League Final in Madrid.
Perhaps the unlikeliest of legends en route to the final against Liverpool was ageing Fernando Llorente, who turned up with some important goals along the way.
His header against Borussia Dortmund in the round of 16 killed off the tie at 3-0, before his winner against Man City in the quarters yet again sent Spurs through.
Not content with that, Llorente then set up Lucas Moura’s dramatic 96th-minute winner to seal a spot in the final.
The Standard claim, as others have, that Spurs offered Llorente a new contract with reduced terms. However, the report states that Tottenham never even heard back from the player’s agent as they seemingly blanked Levy’s proposal.
