It was known that Tottenham would recruit Kim Min-jae (Napoli) this summer.
But it seems to be changing again. It is news that instead of Kim Min-jae, he is eyeing Joshka Gbardiol (RB Leipzig), born in 2000.
German media Bild reported on the 6th (Korean time) that Tottenham has entered a competition to sign Gvardiol at a ransom of 100 million euros (approximately 130 billion won) to reinforce the center back this summer.
Gbardiol is regarded as the hottest player in the German Bundesliga. He also wore a face shield at the World Cup in Qatar and led Croatia to third place.
Gvardiol was initially likely to go to Chelsea. Chelsea have been negotiating smoothly, including reaching a personal agreement with Gbardiol. However, he withdrew because of the ‘astronomical’ transfer fee.
As Bardiol 토토 received ‘love calls’ from Real Madrid and Manchester United, his ransom soared to 100 million euros.
Then Chelsea gave up on Gbardiol and signed Badiacil instead.
Accordingly, it is said that Tottenham joined the recruitment of Gbardiol.
Tottenham are suffering from poor defensive problems. Eric Dyer in particular is sluggish. It is a time when young defenders like Gbardiol are desperately needed.
Tottenham initially showed interest in Kim Min-jae.
However, it is known that the clause that the team that wants to recruit Kim Min-jae has to pay a huge buyout amount of 50 million euros (about 70 billion won) to Napoli is holding back.
Besides, the recruitment period is only 15 days next summer.
It is said that such Tottenham is interested in signing Gvardiol, a transfer fee that is twice as high as Kim Min-jae.
Man Utd is also slowly withdrawing from the match for Kim Min-jae.
In the end, it seems likely that Kim Min-jae will remain in Naples, leaving only rumors.
