For as long as Tottenham continue to impress, their fans are going to have to cope with constant rumours linking their best players with moves away.
Many were predicting an exodus this summer following Spurs' bold but ultimately unsuccessful title challenge.
The reality was quite different, as most of the first team seem to have bought into Mauricio Pochettino's ambitious project. Kyle Walker was the only really notable departee, with the right-back joining Manchester City in a £50million deal.
Yet, it would be no surprise at all if Europe's top clubs were looking seriously at the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen.
It's Alli whose future is particularly unclear after he recently split from long-term agent Rob Segal and Impact Sports Management, who had been representing him since he was a 15-year-old in the MK Dons' academy.
The Times recently reported that the England international was at the centre of a tug-of-war between Mino Raiola and Jorge Mendes. However you dress it up, that is certainly not good news for Spurs given the super-agents' reputations for engineering big-money moves.
The 21-year-old has a big decision to make. It's team spirit and the chance to develop that is on offer under Pochettino, not astronomical wages.
Silverware must be playing on his mind too, as he is yet to win a trophy with the north Londoners, no matter how attractive their football may be.
Where could he go?
It remains to be seen whether he'll try and leave the Lilywhites, but if he does, the Mirror have shed some light on potential destinations.
The newspaper report that the agents trying to land him have told him they can get him a move to either Real Madrid or Manchester United.
On the one hand, it may be best for him to continue refining his game with his current manager. Despite his three goals so far this season, he has also put in a couple of disappointing performances and has still not learned to curb his controversial side, as evidenced by his one-fingered gesture during England vs Slovakia.
Alli turning down Real or United seems unlikely. What is clear is that Daniel Levy has no intention of selling him and is trying to convince him to stay by increasing his current wages of around £60,000 a week.
Only Harry Kane and Hugo Lloris have breached the £100,000 mark, but that may have to change if they are to keep hold of one of the most promising youngsters around.
