Why Tottenham Are Better Off Without This €8million La Liga Star – Beware Pochettino!

Published

on

The summer is set to be a tough one for Tottenham as they look not only to keep their quality up for next season’s extra games but also bring in the quality to give a break to many of the top stars at the club or provide those stars with a real battle for the starting spots in the XI.

With Barcelona star Marc Bartra claiming that his release clause from the Catalan giants is only €8 million, there is bound to be a mad scramble for his signature, given that he is one of the most talented defenders in the Spanish league, though the 25-year-old hasn’t been provided enough chances to show his natural ability in the league.

Much like Marc Muniesa, who ended up joining Stoke City, Marc Bartra is another player from the famed La Masia youth product but he has not been able to stamp his authority in the Barcelona first team and only made 20 appearances for the Catlin side last season, out of which only seven were starting XI games for the defender.

Bartra is known for his incredible passing, something which is a given for any player to come from the Barcelona team nowadays but the 25-year-old is also known for his tackling and aerial ability, something which will hold him in good stead if he does make a move to the Premier League sometime soon.

The problem with Bartra is that he might take a lot of time to adjust to the physical nature of the Premier League and that is something that neither Tottenham or any other club looking to sign him have the time to afford.

Bartra also does not have the greatest pace and that would be a huge problem for him in the Premier League. The Spanish defender might do well in Spain or even in Italy but with age not really on his side and the lack of playing time at Barcelona, the best option for Spurs would be to avoid the Catalan’s signing.

Tottenham do have a decent centre-back paring in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld while Kevin Wimmer does a decent job when either of the duo are absent. Splashing the cash on Bartra would be a gamble and we aren’t sure that Pochettino should go for the defender. The Argentine would be wise to keep the money in his pocket and try to sign someone else before the start of the season and provide cover for his defence.
