The deadline for the January transfer market is approaching, but the speed is hardly accelerating before signing Pedro Poro of Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League (EPL).
According to multiple British media outlets on the afternoon of the 27th local time, the negotiations between Sporting CP and Tottenham in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, Poro’s team, are still being delayed.
On this day, the Evening Standard reported, “Tottenham are concentrating on signing a POW transfer contract worth 39 million pounds (59.54 billion won), but they are experiencing considerable difficulties.” The story of the media is that there is no progress even though it seems that the negotiations are not far away.
As for the details of the contract the two sides are discussing, the media differs slightly. According to Football London, a British football media, the POW transfer fee has soared to 39.5 million pounds (60.3 billion won).
This is similar to the POW buyout amount originally proposed by Sporting. One of the reasons why Tottenham and Sporting’s initial negotiations were sluggish was this buyout clause.
It is said that Sporting did not change its opinion after setting the POW’s buyout amount at 45 million euros (KRW 60.5 billion) as the transfer fee baseline. According to various media at the time, Tottenham offered Sporting £32.5 million (49.7 billion won), but was rejected. Since then, he has gradually raised the offer amount and soothed Sporting’s mind.
On the other hand, it is known that Tottenham even proposed a plan to further revise the terms of the contract of winger Marcus Edwards, who was sent to Sporting in January of last year, in exchange for a reduced transfer fee for the prisoner. Under the contract, Tottenham are entitled to 40% of the transfer fee that Sporting will receive when selling Edwards.
In the midst of this, Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano, who is well versed in the European transfer market, insisted, “It’s a five-and-a-half-year contract that runs until 2028, and the individual clauses have already been perfectly agreed upon.”
The January transfer window deadline is midnight on the 31st, UK local time. 안전놀이터
