It is a recruitment with a lot of talk and a lot of trouble. Tottenham turned around and succeeded in signing Pedro Poro (23).
Britain’s ‘The Sun’ reported on the 31st (Korean time) that ‘Tottenham finally succeeded in signing the right wingback prisoner of Sporting Lisbon after a turbulent 24 hours’.
Tottenham played in all directions throughout the month of January during the winter transfer market to recruit prisoners. A transfer fee of 32.5 million pounds (approximately 49.5 billion won) was offered, but was rejected. Tottenham decided to pay all of the buyout amount of 39.9 million pounds (about 60.7 billion won) to Sporting, and even reached a verbal agreement. 스포츠토토
However, Sporting shook the negotiating board once again ahead of the prisoner’s medical test. The situation took a sharp turn when he demanded more money. The deal went to the brink of collapse.
Tottenham were furious. But again, I had to give up. Reconciliation was reached through a ‘package deal’ worth 45 million pounds (approximately 68.5 billion won).
Tottenham owns 50% of the ‘Sell On’ rights to Marcus Edwards, who is from youth and plays for Sporting. In order to sign a prisoner, this right was adjusted to be lowered to 35%, and Sporting accepted.
The winter transfer window closes on the 31st at 11pm local time. The prisoner will undergo a medical test right before the deadline and sign the final contract.
After playing for Girona, he moved to Manchester City in 2019 and came into the spotlight. However, he did not play in a single game and went on loan to Sporting this season.
Manchester City also has ‘cell-on’ rights to prisoners. Man City is said to receive £9 million (approximately 14 billion won) for the transfer of the prisoner.
