The second winter transfer market is also imminent. The ‘official’ of Sporting CP’s right wingback Pedro Poro (23) entered the countdown.
Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European transfer market, said on the 26th (local time), ‘Tottenham’s POW signing is imminent. In Lisbon, we entered the final stage of negotiations. The transfer was agreed, and the terms of payment for the transfer fee of 45 million euros (approximately 60.5 billion won), which is the buyout amount, are being discussed.” Romano also revealed that ‘Tottenham are expecting ‘Here we go’ in 24 or 48 hours.
Manager Antonio Conte has pointed out POW as the first signing in the winter transfer market. However, negotiations with Sporting were not easy.
Tottenham offered a transfer fee of 32.5 million pounds (about 50 billion won), but was rejected. Sporting said they could not concede 45 million euros, that is, 40 million pounds, the amount of the prisoner’s buyout clause.
In the end, Tottenham raised the ‘white flag’. We decided to pay the full buyout by paying a bonus in addition to the basic transfer fee. 메이저놀이터
In this transfer market, manager Conte staked his life and death on reinforcing the right wingback. The existing Emerson Royale and Matt Doherty did not fill the castle. Jed Spence, who was recruited by the club in the summer transfer market this season, was classified as out of power.
Poro has already been tested by Conte. Tottenham met Sporting in the European Champions League group stage this season. Coach Conte directly checked POW’s skills and acknowledged the possibility.
The 23-year-old Porro is from Spain. 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. He scored 12 goals in 97 appearances for Sporting.
