Gianluca Di Marzio gives an update on talks between Tottenham & Atalanta for Cristian Romero
By Eddie Razo -

The negotiations between Tottenham Hotspur and Atalanta BC remain at a standstill for defender Cristian Romero since both clubs are far apart in agreeing on a transfer sum. 

Italian football journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports that following a meeting between the two clubs, both parties left the discussion table not feeling as though the talks have advanced. 

Furthermore, the report states that talks for Romero appear to be on a lifeline. Still, there will be further contacts between the two sides to understand the margins to mend and, if necessary, resume the discussion for the Argentine defender in the coming days. 

Di Marzo echoes various reports that Romero is doing his part to push the transfer over the finish line. The 23-year-old wants the clubs to find a solution as he wants to join Tottenham. 

The Italian journalist adds that the two parties seemed close to an agreement to close the deal. However, Atalanta wants to stall while waiting to find a replacement. Meanwhile, Tottenham tried to accelerate by offering more than €50-million to have the player available well before the start of the Premier League.

I would not pay $100M for a “midfielder” that does not actually play midfield not when you have De Bruyne and Foden who is a superior defender. Where is he going to play at the #10 spot? Interesting with Sterling, Mahrez, Silva, Jesus. Gundogan, ferran torres. Somebody is not going to be happy and they cannot sign Kane after shelling out that much wad.

As soon as a story circulates that Plan B is Smalling you know this is nearly done.

it seems that this report is putting a more negative spin on the negotiations than was actually conveyed by Di Marzio. Contrary to your assertion, the negotiations between the two clubs are not “at a standstill’ as Spurs have now upped their offer to 50 million euro. This is very close to the reported fee asked by Atalanta of 55 million euro, so manifestly the clubs are not far apart.

Spurs are pushing hard to complete the deal and Atalanta are stalling in order to confirm a replacement. Hardly an insurmountable problem. My assessment is that both sides have gone too far and have invested too much time in these negotiations and are too close in price for this deal to fall apart. All parties want a positive outcome, therefore I expect a compromise to be reached and the deal to be consummated.

What if it is the agent sourcing out the information to stall hoping to get other clubs involve. No other club is going to meet their price so either they negotiate with Spurs or he stay put. Although he is on a hot streak, he is no stopper like Van Dyke, but he is the best out there for Spurs.
