Tottenham Hotspur fans have launched a change.org petition in order to break away from the 'strategic partnership' that is in place with Spanish giants Real Madrid, according to the Daily Star.
The petition accuses the Spanish giants of ''treating the club and the players without respect.'' It continued by saying: ''The transfer of Mezut Ozil to our top rivals in order to recoup money spent on Gareth Bale is the ultimate duplicitous action and we deserve a fair and mutual exchange between clubs rather than being treated as a feeder club.''
It is quite understandable why Spurs fans are so concerned with this partnership with Real Madrid as it seems that Tottenham have had very little benefit from the agreement as they have not made any acquisitions from the Spanish giants.
Reports suggesting that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy tried to stop Real from selling Ozil to Arsenal but ultimately failed, highlights the total disregard shown by the club that has nine European Cups to their name.
Tottenham have now sold two of their world class stars to Real and you would expect Madrid to compensate with offering stars that could benefit both parties. Yet, with the departure of Ozil to Tottenham's North London rivals, it does pose the question: what is in it for Spurs?
Over 1,500 Tottenham Hotspur fans have signed the petition since it started. On the surface, Spurs may been losing out on the partnership so only time will tell on whether there is anything in it for the North London outfit.
