Tottenham Savagely Troll Inter Milan Immediately After They Sign Christian Eriksen
Tottenham announced the permanent signing of Giovani Lo Celso immediately after Inter Milan confirmed the transfer of Christian Eriksen.
Eriksen has finally completed his move away from Spurs by penning a contract until 2024 with the Nerazzurri in a deal worth a reported £17 million.

Milano: your elegance is about to meet its match.

Spurs, meanwhile, have wasted no time in replacing his services by exercising the option to convert the loan of Lo Celso to a permanent deal.
We are delighted to announce that we have exercised the option to convert the loan of @LoCelsoGiovani from Real Betis to a permanent transfer.
✍️ Gio has signed a contract with the Club until 2025. #THFC :white_circle: #COYS

And the Premier League outfit unveiled the signing of Lo Celso in epic timing. They confirmed his signing literally moments after Inter announced the signing of Eriksen.
Naturally, the timing of both deals sent social media into overdrive.
Can't believe we announced Lo Celso the moment Eriksen to Inter was announced. The levels of pettiness here is admirable.

The timing from Tottenham Hotspur! Inter Milan announce the signing of Christian Eriksen and in the same moment Spurs announce they've signed Giovani Lo Celso on a permanent deal until 2025. That's very well done.

Kudos to the @SpursOfficial admin :clap::joy: Eriksen announced by Inter, Lo Celso immediately announced by #thfc - Out with the old in with new, sad how it ended for someone who should have gone down as a 'legend'. Shame it went pear shaped :pear:towards the end but his own fault. #COYS :flag_ar:

Lo Celso announced the exact same time Inter announce Eriksen. That is our Eriksen replacement folks. Do not expect Fernandes or anyone similar. Love Gio! #thfc

"Inter announce Eriksen. We announce our upgrade within minutes. Love it admin," one social media user wrote.
A second tweeted: "Epic timing from Spurs. Lo Celso deal becomes permanent just as Eriksen is announced at Inter. Top trolling."
A third added: "Imagine the spurs admin waiting for the exact time inter announce Eriksen to announce."
Lo Celso has signed a contract with the club until 2025 after joining them in the summer.
