ROMANO CLAIMS Crotia footballer turns Manchester city down as He Really wants to join Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on Luka Vuskovic after he told Hajduk Split to ignore all other offers for his signature.

Luka Vuskovic is on the verge of joining Tottenham Hotspur but the details of his move cannot be revealed.

That is according to Fabrizio Romano, who has been speaking on the Here We Go podcast this week.

Romano broke the news of Tottenham’s imminent deal for Vuskovic on Sunday evening, stating that personal terms had been agreed.

The 16-year-old can’t actually play for Tottenham until 2025 due to post-Brexit rules, so Spurs face something of a wait.

Signing Vuskovic two years before he can even play for the club is quite the show of faith – especially as the teenager won’t be cheap.

Fabrizio Romano comments on Luka Vuskovic deal

Romano has now offered some more information about Vuskovic’s move to North London.

The Italian started by saying that he knows the finer details of the move but can’t actually report on them because ‘they will kill me’.

Romano was of course joking but did state that one other English club made an approach for Vuskovic, which he can’t name at the moment.

Romano added that Vuskovic only wanted to join Tottenham and told Hajduk to snub all other bids for him.

It’s believed that the presence of Ange Postecoglouand the ‘new ideas’ of Daniel Levy played a key role with Vuskovic convinced by the Spurs project.

A medical will take place next week according to Romano, with Spurs on the verge of a significant signing for the future.

“Yes, I have the details, but I can’t share the details or they will kill me,” joked Romano. “I will try to give you as many details as possible so we can explain what happened. First of all, I think this is an important move for Tottenham. To see a player like Luka Vuskovic, wanted by many clubs around Europe, he was already wanted by many clubs; end of January, beginning of February, Paris Saint-Germain were negotiating with Hajduk Split to sign Luka Vuskovic, then end of February, beginning of March, Manchester City presented a proposal, an official bid to sign Luka Vuskovic, so two super clubs approached the player, and there was one more English club that I can’t say the name now, but I will say very soon.”

“The player only wanted to go to Tottenham, because they presented an important project for his development, so it’s not just about the money or the badge, it’s also about the project. He feels that, at Tottenham, with Ange Postecoglou as manager, with the new ideas of Daniel Levy after the Harry Kane story closed an era for Tottenham, to see that project was crucial for Luka Vuskovic.”

“He decided to accept Tottenham, he told Hajduk not to negotiate with any other club, because he only wanted to go to Tottenham, and now the deal is done and we wait for the medical tests. From what I’m hearing it’s going to take place next week. Next week, very soon, Vuskovic will complete medical tests as a new Tottenham player and then I can share the details of the deal in terms of money, but it’s not going be a small fee, it’s going to be an important fee for a 16-year-old boy, so it’s not going to be £1m or £2m, it’s going to be way more than this,” Romano said.

Hopefully Ange Postecoglou is still in charge when Vuskovic arrives

Vuskovic may love the direction Tottenham are going in, especially in terms of the attractive football under Postecoglou.

Yet the nature of this deal means there are no guarantees that Postecoglou will actually be in charge of Spurs come 2025.

We would hope that Postecoglou is still at the helm for Tottenham, having already made a huge impact in North London.

Nothing is guaranteed though; results can turn quickly or maybe Postecoglou impresses so much that another club tries to snatch him away.

Hopefully, Postecoglou stays put – and gets the chance to help Vuskovic develop into a star.
