According to CMW, Tottenham manager Fabio Paratici wants to sell Bryan Gil to Juventus in order to reduce the permanent fee required to sign Dejan Kulusevski, who is still on loan at Spurs.
Kulusevski joined Spurs on an 18-month loan from Juventus in January. He was initially viewed as a panic buy after Spurs missed out on Luis Diaz, who instead signed with Liverpool. However, the Swede has been one of Conte’s best players since his arrival.
The loan deal includes an option to buy him on a permanent deal for a fee that increases with time. According to The Evening Standard, Spurs paid ‘£8.3million’ to sign him on loan with a choice to make the move permanent in the summer ‘for a further £24.9m’.
This option is still available until next summer, but if Spurs qualify for the UCL next season and the player plays ‘more than 50% of their matches,’ they will have to pay Juventus a ‘higher fee of £29.1 million.’
Spurs, on the other hand, have activated the clause this summer for the lower fee of £24.9m, as Conte has already decided to make him a permanent member of his squad.
Fabio Paratici is now considering selling attacker Bryan Gil to Juventus, according to CMW. The player is valued at around £13million which would reduce Kulusevski’s fee by almost half.
Gil was keen on leaving Spurs to re-join Valencia where he enjoyed a successful loan spell but his move was blocked by Spurs on deadline day as they decided to keep him against his wishes. The youngster has barely featured for Spurs this season which has put a dent in his development as a player.
With the attacking options that Conte has, Gil will be hoping to leave Spurs in the hunt for a fresh start. If an option to leave the North London club arises, he might take it without thinking much.
