Romano confirms Tottenham as one of the clubs who tried to hijack the Vitor Roque deal

Agent Andre Cury has shed light on Tottenham Hotspur’s audacious attempt to hijack the Vitor Roque deal from Barcelona. The Brazilian wonder kid, who had reportedly agreed to terms with the Catalan giants, saw both Manchester United and Spurs launch substantial bids.

Cury, a renowned figure in the football world, disclosed the staggering details relayed by esteemed journalist Fabrizio Romano. Speaking about the situation, Cury revealed,

“I can confirm that English clubs tried to hijack Roque deal. Tottenham and Manchester United sent important bids, way better than Barça, close to €100m.”

However, despite the alluring offers from Tottenham and Manchester United, Roque had his heart set on a move to Barcelona, displaying unwavering loyalty to the Blaugrana. It seems the prospect of joining the illustrious Spanish club held a magnetic pull that no other destination could match.

Consequently, Barcelona eventually completed the deal, officially announcing the signing of the 18-year-old prodigy yesterday. This investment showcases the confidence Barcelona has in Roque’s abilities, considering him a vital addition to their squad for the future.

Vitor Roque’s rise as one of the most exciting attacking talents in Brazilian football has been nothing short of remarkable. Throughout this season, he has dazzled fans and pundits alike, contributing to an impressive tally of 21 goals and assists in 31 appearances.

The fact that Chairman Daniel Levy was reportedly willing to invest such a significant amount in a young talent suggests how highly Tottenham valued him and it is a disappointment to miss out on him.

Tottenham’s interest in Roque signifies their ambition to compete at the highest level and secure promising talents who can shape the club’s future success. While Roque’s preference for Barcelona prevented a move to North London, there are other players in the market.

With Kane’s future at the club uncertain, Tottenham might have wanted to take a punt on a youngster with a high ceiling to take over from the Englishman should he choose to leave the club.
