Fabrizio Romano has made an interesting revelation about Bryan Gil and Real Sociedad’s secret interest in signing him last month.
The January transfer window just concluded a few days ago, with the news surrounding many unsuccessful deals being revealed now.
Tottenham Hotspur emerged as the most active club in the market, finalising three transfers and signing players such as Timo Werner, Radu Dragusin, and Lucas Bergvall.
Spurs also saw 8 players leave, either permanently or on loan. Another player that came close to leaving was Bryan Gil.
He was strongly linked to a departure from Hotspur Way last month, but ultimately, he remained with the club.
According to the transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Real Sociedad made enquiries about Bryan Gil for a loan deal in January.
They even held ‘secret meetings’ with the club but could not meet the conditions set by the Lilywhites, leading to the deal not materialising.
He adds that the Spanish club were not the only club keen to sign the left-winger; Feyenoord and fellow English club Brighton also made late proposals.
Romano shared on X:
“Real Sociedad asked for Bryan Gil on loan during the January transfer window. He was one of the targets, but despite secret talks with Spurs conditions of the deal were not in Real parameters.”
“Bryan turned down Feyenoord and Brighton proposals in the final week.”

Nevertheless, the young forward rejected offers from both clubs in the final week, opting to stay in North London.
Gil has yet to open his goal tally for the Lillywhites, and it appears unlikely that this will change anytime soon, especially with the recent addition of Timo Werner to the club. Werner is expected to feature regularly on the left side of the attack.
Nevertheless, the youngster trusts himself to fight for the playing time and turn his career around in North London.
