Tottenham player has ‘promised himself’ to Euro giants, clubs €6m apart in valuation

By Saikat -

Emerson Royal has decided to join AC Milan who are trying to strike a deal with Tottenham Hotspur.

Emerson has fallen down the pecking order at Tottenham after the arrival of Ange Postecoglou. He is on the lookout for an opportunity to continue his career elsewhere and AC Milan have been linked with the Brazilian international for some time now.

According to a report from Calciomercato, the former Barcelona full-back has ‘promised himself’ to the Italian giants.

The 25-year-old was an integral part of Spurs’ first team before the Australian manager took charge last summer. While he was involved in 24 matches last season, the majority of those appearances came because of an injury crisis at the back.

Emerson is not considered to be the right fit for Postecoglou’s system and the North London club are ready to sanction his departure.

AC Milan have been working on a potential deal for some time now. They have already agreed terms with the player who will be earning €3 million per season in Italy. He has already committed to a move to them and will be penning down a five-year deal or a four-year deal with an option of another 12 months once Milan reach an agreement with Spurs over the fee involved.

The Italian giants’ initial offer of €14 million was deemed to be not good enough. Spurs are holding out on their final valuation of €20 million and have no intentions of lowering it further. Intermediaries are trying to negotiate with the North London club as far as their valuation is concerned and it remains to be seen whether the two parties can secure an agreement soon.

While Emerson is keen on leaving for Milan, he will have to wait a little longer.
