Spurs still likely to sign their main target as Barcelona ruled out of the running

Posted by

Barcelona have been a curious case in recent transfer windows, mainly because they are simultaneously linked with some big moves despite multiple stories highlighting how serious their financial issues really are.

They did make a solid signing in Eric Garcia, but they may still look for a more experienced and proven defender to help bolster that part of the team next year.

It’s now clear how they would finance that, and that should be the main reason that they are ruled out of the race for Cristian Romero:

The Atalanta defender has been heavily linked with Spurs for weeks now after a strong showing at the Copa America, and it still feels like he will end up there before the summer is out.

Spurs also allowed Toby Alderweireld to leave and you have to think that doesn’t happen if they aren’t very confident of getting a replacement through the door soon, so perhaps these Barca rumours were designed to hurry the negotiations along a bit.

More Stories Cristian Romero


  1. For Heavens sake Levy. Get on the phone today and complete the Romero transfer before Chelsea come in and steal the player.

  2. As usual Spurs announce who they want to sign before the deal is done and alert all their rivals. They will sign a centre back but as is often the case because they are dragging their heals, they risk having to settle for their second or third choice. Sanchez hasn’t suddenly become a bad player he just needs coaching. I’m sick of seeing Spurs waist money, they seem to do it every window and destroy young careers.
