“He won’t stay” – Club chief says Spurs star will leave the club very soon

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham Hotspur completed the signing of Radu Dragusin last week, a defender they had been pursuing since quite a few weeks.

Spurs faced eleventh-hour competition from Bayern Munich, who made a better offer, but the centre-back opted to join the North London outfit.

The 21-year-old, who made his debut for the Spurs by coming on as a substitute against Manchester United over the weekend, signed a contract that is set to expire on June 2030.

But despite the long-term commitment, his agent has already talked up a future move to Bayern and Real Madrid.

His agent Florin Manea mentioned that his client has significant potential and foresees him playing for Europe’s top-tier clubs.

In an interview with the Romanian outlet Digisport, he said: “In three or four years I see him at Real Madrid!”

And now, the CEO of Dragusin’s former club has suggested that his stay at Hotspur Way will be short-lived.

Speaking to Romania’s daily newspaper GSP.ro, Andres Blazquez remarked:

“Dragusin has great potential and I think he won’t stay too long at Spurs. Radu will reach a top five European team! I think Tottenham will not be the last destination of his career. I see him at a top five team in Europe in the future.”

Genoa’s CEO also mentioned that they could have negotiated a more favourable deal with Bayern, exceeding Tottenham’s €30 million, which includes €5 million in add-ons.

However, they chose to honour Dragusin’s childhood dream of playing in the English top flight. Blazquez explained:

“We would have gotten more money [from Bayern], a few million, and Radu’s contract would have been better. But we respected his desire to play in the Premier League.”

TBH Says:

Fans have not been thrilled by the agent’s comments, finding it extremely disrespectful, specially considering they came before he had even kicked a ball for us.

And with his former club’s CEO also making similar claims, perhaps it is something Levy will need to keep him in mind.
