However, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium team has not stopped the shopping, as sporting director Fabio Paratici is still negotiating to recruit midfielder Clement Lenglet from Barcelona and can be completed as soon as next week.
Meanwhile, Tottenham’s rival with the city of London, Chelsea, is being “troubled” by Barcelona, and the recruitment of midfielder Raphinha from Leeds is thought to be completed.
The reason is that Leeds club has agreed a transfer fee with Chelsea (£60 million) for Raphinha. But when the “Blues” side negotiated personal terms, the 25-year-old Brazilian star reportedly disagreed because he just wanted to play for the Catalan team more.
Besides, between Raphinha and his agent, former player Deco (also a former Chelsea player) has a personal agreement with Barcelona since February early this year. However, the Barcelona club gave the transfer fee of Raphinha to Leeds too low and was repeatedly rejected, as well as the latest offer that was also less than half of the offer from Chelsea.
As a result, Leeds are now honoring the agreement with Chelsea to sell Raphinha for a fee of £60 million plus value-added costs, forcing the agent Deco and the player to accept, cancel the agreement with Barcelona and negotiate terms. Personal account with the Stamford Bridge team.
In another development of the summer transfer window, the Man City club operated quietly but extremely effectively. “Green Man” after buying striker Erling Haaland, leaving Gabriel Jesus (to Arsenal) and captain Fernandinho back to Athletico Paranaense (Brazil), is preparing to launch the next heavyweight contract is defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips also from Leeds club for a total fee of £ 45 million.
