Tom Holland worked hard for Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the January transfer window, but his main focus could be a bit ambitious.
Spider-Man actor is a lifelong Spurs fan, therefore tried to use his fame and position to help his club.
The 25-year-old Londoner is currently promoting Spider-Man: No Way Home and is therefore invited to all kinds of events.
One of the more recent saw him with his co-star Zendaya invited to the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris on November 29.
As a huge football fan, Holland was like a kid in a candy store, meeting Paris Saint-Germain stars Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
Holland took advantage of the time spent with Mbappe to present him with a proposal: why not leave PSG for Spurs in the next transfer window?
He and Zendaya made a video for LADbible in which they explained how it happened.
âWe went to the Ballon d’Or the other day,â Holland said. âWe met Messi and it was crazy. It was crazy.
âAnd we met MbappÃ©. I actually asked Mbappeâ¦ I said ‘Hey, nice to meet you.’ I was really nice, I said, ‘Dude you have to come to Tottenham.’ And he just burst out laughing.
HAVE YOUR WORD TO SAY! Who is a realistic target for Tottenham in the January transfer window? Comments below.
The video then cuts the unlikely duo together in their red carpet tuxedos and shows Mbappe’s reaction.
“Not impossible!” he said before laughing. “It’s impossible!”
Mbappe’s reaction is hardly surprising given his current situation, with a big money transfer in the works in 2022.
The 22-year-old star is at the end of his contract with PSG this summer and looks set to leave the club.
Real Madrid – not Spurs – are the most likely destination, with the Spanish giants making two very public attempts to sign him over the summer.
PSG have reportedly rejected two offers, which have reached Â£ 160million for his services, but with President Florentino Perez desperate for his man they will return to the subject over the New Year.
Real will also get a good look at Mbappe’s Champions League talents after the two clubs clashed in the last 16 in Monday’s failed ceremony.
