Fabrizio Romano reports talks between Tottenham and Atalanta are at a standstill over Romero
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur wants to land a central defender that will anchor their backline for the foreseeable future. The London-based club has eyes various candidates, and Atalanta defender Cristian Romero is one that they’re trying to land this summer. 

Italian football reporter Fabrizio Romano provided an update on the Premier League side’s pursuit of the 23-year-old. Tottenham is still in talks with Atalanta, but it’s at a standstill moment as they’re not paying €55-million price tag.

Romero is a priority for Tottenham; however, they’re only willing to pay between €40-million and €45-million for the Argentine defender. There’s at least a €10-million gap between what the English club wants to pay and the asking price Atalanta demands. 

Furthermore, Romano adds that Romero and Tottenham have agreed to personal terms, but they have yet to agree on a transfer sum with the Serie A side. 

The report also states that FC Barcelona has made no bid for Romero, explaining why Tottenham has yet to improve its offer and meet Atalanta’s asking price.

Every summer. It never changes. They put up a name, take the whole window up….don’t front the cash….and end up with nobody or a 3rd rate emergency job.
Expecting something different?

This isn’t about Barca coming in it’s about Levy being incapable of buying a high quality player for a fair fee. For some reason of mental incapacity he’d rather buy 3 junk players for the same money – players which he’d then struggle to sell within 2 seasons. The man is a gold plated A-hole.

Genuine non rhetorical question – what measure are you using to distinguish a fair price in this case?

I’ve no idea myself.

Well around £45-50m I’d say for his age, Argentinian international and Seria A defender of the year last season. It would be higher than that that but for the current covid situation and the fact that normally bigger clubs would come in for him and there would be an auction.

Regrettably all too true. Let us hope this time, for once, that the influence of Paratici and his determination to secure what is obviously his top defensive target, is backed sufficiently by Levy to allow it to happen.

Conversation between Levy and Paratici after MK game. Levy – ‘I thought Carter-Vickers had a good game. He only gave away two free kicks on edge of penalty area and a fluffed clearance that led to their goal. Maybe we can save 60 million’.

Paratici appears to have limited knowledge of players from the UK considering every player he is interested in are mainly from Italy.
Therefore the risk of players not settling and fitting in is probably higher than home based ones, it’s a strategy that could be a problem for the club, depending on how many are tempted to come over.

He was only brought in to deflect blame from Levy. Football wise, as ever, it was pointless, unless, like you point out , they want a team of half rate Italians…..cos the good ones won’t come.

Not exactly correct. Last update from Fabrizio Romano is as follows … “Tottenham are still the only club leading the race for Cristian Romero. Talks ongoing with Atalanta to reach an agreement, work in progress tonight/today too. Personal terms agreed. #THFC

Barcelona have not made any official/verbal bid as they’ve different priorities” — Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) July 29, 2021
