A number of media outlets have leapt upon the ParisUnited piece claiming to add value to the Ryan Sessegnon saga.
Before we move on to the point of this blog, let me assist in translating the specific element of interest from the French in the article into English for you.
According to our information, Tottenham has already agreed with the player and Fulham. There is one more detail to settle. Know if he will join the Spurs this summer or next year. In case of accession of the Cottagers in the Premier League, the English side will be loaned an additional season by the club London. On the other hand, if the club does not succeed, Sessegnon will evolve under the orders of Mauricio Pochettino (coach of Tottenham) as of next August.
So that’s a might be this summer, might be next summer.
Any other spin, hints, inferences or allegations you’ve perceived were put there by interns on other sites.
May 7th last year Gladys told me that personal terms had been agreed with the boy Sessegnon. In June the Sess to Spurs stuff emerged in earnest with Mirror leading the charge, if I recall correctly.
A transfer fee of some £15million was mooted thereafter by the Independent.
I sold everything I owned and put a £8 on the move happening that summer.
So here we are a year on and there are still semi-audible mumbles about a maybe.
Oh, and the price is now £50million.
Hesitant, ineffective and thoroughly inauthentic and we wonder why we don’t win anything.
