Club insider believes Tottenham should only consider selling star player for a world record fee

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham’s standout defender Cristian Romero has been the focus of transfer speculation.

The Argentine international has attracted the interest of European powerhouses like Real Madrid, who are keen to secure his services this summer.

His performances last season were particularly impressive, with Romero making 33 Premier League appearances and scoring five goals, the highest among defenders in the league.

He has also continued his outstanding form for the country in the Copa America. He has been one of their best players, helping them to the semi-finals of the competition.

He has attracted interest from top clubs including Real Madrid, with recent reports suggesting that Ancelotti has identified him as a the player he wants to add to his star-studded side.

But signing him won’t be cheap. John Wenham, a reputable club insider asserts that Spurs should only consider selling Romero for a world-record fee for a defender.

Wenham emphasises that Tottenham should concentrate on building their team around the 26-year-old centre-back.

Romero, who joined the Lilywhites from Atalanta in the summer of 2021 for a substantial fee of €52 million, has established himself as a vital player under Ange Postecoglou.

Given his pivotal role, Wenham suggests that Spurs would be justified in demanding an excessive transfer fee if they were to entertain offers for him. Romero’s contract with the Lilywhites runs until 2027, further solidifying his value to the club.

Wenham also highlighted Romero’s leadership qualities, as he was named vice-captain last season. This move is part of a strategy to build the team’s defensive strength around him.

Speaking to Tottenham News, he said:

“Romero is contracted with Tottenham until 2027.

“As a result, I think the club would be completely within their rights to demand a world record fee for a defender.

“We should be looking to build the team around Romero. I think that process started last season when he was named vice-captain.

“Maybe we shouldn’t be putting a price on him, but if we were, it would be a ridiculous fee.”

The Argentine centre-back’s impressive form has not only secured his place in Tottenham’s lineup but has also attracted the attention of top European clubs.

As the transfer window progresses, Spurs remain committed to Romero, viewing him as a cornerstone of their squad for the foreseeable future.
