Bergamo Corriere is confident that Cristian Romero is soon to be officially announced as a Tottenham player.
This breaking news from Italy will ask more questions about Tottenham’s transfer finances, as the incoming money and the outgoing money currently don’t match up.
Here are the current outgoings
€42 million Cristian Romero
€25 million Bryan Gill
£13 million Pierluigi Gollini
Here are the current incomings
£13 million Juan Foyth
£10 million Toby Alderweireld
In theory, the incomings might be drastically bumped with the sale of just one or two of the unhelpfully named ‘deadwood’ players, but only if Daniel Levy can get what he perceives as full whack.
At this present moment in time, Tottenham’s budget is a ball-park figure well over £50 million in the red.
Romero looks to be a good bet, as these clips of his long passing and his aggressive, pressing nature indicate. Naturally, this is all subject to the usual concerns about changing from one league to another and so forth.
