The curios case of Bruma from Galatasaray seems to be getting more complex with each day passing. It was claimed recently that the Portuguese winger was set to leave the club with Sabah claiming that Tottenham will sign him up for €15 million.
The club quickly refuted that claim and stated that the deal has not taken place for the 22-year-old. However, another report, this time by NtvSpor claims that the Turkish giants have changed their minds and are willing to let go of the winger due to his wage demands.
Bruma reportedly wants a pay hike at the club and is looking at a rise of 100% over his current weekly wage deal, something that Galatasaray is not willing to accept.
This isn’t the first time that Tottenham have been linked with the winger and Mauricio Pochettino certainly would be looking to add attacking quality to his side for next season.
The Tottenham boss might lose out on Erik Lamela at the end of the season and Moussa Sissoko is all but gone from the White Hart Lane based side. The departure of these two players would certainly reduce the attacking options for the club and the Argentine could wrap up the deal for one of the brightest talents in Europe on the cheap.
Bruma has scored eight goals and has provided six assists in 23 league games this season, not the worst record for a player in the Turkish league. The major issue for Spurs would be the fact that Bruma isn’t playing for one of the bigger leagues in Europe and it is incredibly difficult to gauge the quality of a player who isn’t playing in a top league.
Spurs have had a history of signing duds by paying a huge amount of money and Pochettino would be looking to avoid repeating that in this summer. A few more additions to the side that can take the team up to another level could land Spurs with a better set of results in the Champions League and it will be interesting to see how Pochettino goes about the summer window this time around.
