Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to express their reaction after reports broke out yesterday that Manchester City are plotting a shock move for Spurs midfielder, Harry Winks.

According to reports from The Sun, Jose Mourinho could allow Winks to leave the club this summer if they can draw a bid in the region of £40million with City keen.

Pep Guardiola is a keen admirer of the England international. The 24-year-old’s style of play mirrors the type of football Guardiola plays at the Etihad, and it is no surprise that the Spaniard is so fond of him.

Winks, who signed a new five-year contract under Mauricio Pochettino last year, played an important role in Mourinho’s squad last season.

However, after Jose Mourinho signed Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton this week, the Portuguese could feel the need to offload some of his players.

Spurs do not have a high transfer budget, and therefore Mourinho could be tempted to sell him if they receive a handsome offer.

Many Spurs fans feel that Winks should not be sold as he is a homegrown product. There are others who feel there are better midfielders available in the market, and Spurs should let him go. Here are some of the selected tweets:
