The Ivorian spent four years in North London and he had his ups and downs. It was more than clear that he wouldn’t be a regular under Nuno Espirito Santo this season, which forced him to consider leaving.
Spurs were happy to tear up Aurier’s contract and the 28-year-old was delighted to walk away as well. Tottenham fans weren’t too bothered either, especially after Fabio Paratici replaced him with Emerson Royal.
A few weeks have passed since Aurier’s departure and Spurs fans haven’t really remembered him in that period. However, every Tottenham fan’s attention will be piqued if a latest report from Spain is to be believed.
El Chiringuito de Jugones, as relayed by Super Deporte, have revealed today that Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid could turn to Aurier as an option to provide cover for Dani Carvajal, whose injury woes have continued.
The Spaniard missed a huge chunk of last season due to a ligament injury. He recovered over the course of the summer and Real Madrid fans were hoping to see him return to his best. Sadly, he has been sidelined again.
