According to the latest report from Almeida Gonçalves, Tottenham hope to sign Spanish right-winger Pedro Polo and their former youth player Marcus Edwards from Sporting Lisbon.
The response they got was clear: the two players could only leave under the amount stipulated in the terms of the contract, and the release clause for the two for Tottenham added up to 75 million euros.
The tough attitude of the Portuguese side also made Tottenham’s management feel a little frustrated, and they are still thinking about their own financial issues. This deal seems to be a bit difficult to produce.
Tottenham’s interest in the duo began in last year’s Champions League group stage and they have made their first exploratory contact since then.
With the transfer market reopening, Tottenham went on the offensive and approached the holding company of Lisbon, who immediately demanded a total price of 75 million euros.
At the end of the season, Lisboa’s management knew they would have to sell players again, and there may have been some room for negotiation this summer.
Therefore, for the Portuguese sports coach Amorim, they may need to spend some time thinking about this issue.
