Tottenham Transfer Target Benched And Fined After A War Of Words With His Manager

According to Fotomac, Turkish giants Galatasaray are on the verge of fining Tottenham transfer target Bruma after his ill-discipline act against Erzincanspor in the Turkish Cup.

He was replaced in the 66th minute, which he wasn’t happy about and subsequently tried to head straight down the tunnel. Manager Riekernik told the player to go to the bench and an exchange of words took place between the pair. Evidently, things are not rosy between them, as Bruma was left on the bench when Galatasaray squared off Akhisarspor during the weekend.

Furthermore, Bruma is demanding a new deal with his current side. With 5 goals and 5 assists to his name, the club are glad to do so yet the only hiccup is his salary request. The versatile midfielder wants an increase from €1.2 million per year after tax to €4 million. Despite being a mainstay, that’s ample of money in a short period.

The 22-year-old attacker was constantly linked with a move to the north London club earlier this month. Sportwitness reported that Galatasaray rebuffed a €15 million bid from Tottenham as they were seeking additional €5 million for a player who was signed for approximately €10 million from Sporting Lisbon, where he was often compared to Cristiano Ronaldo. However, Tottenham never followed up the opening offer and the talks have remained as treading water.

Bruma clearly had his heart set for a move to White Hart Lane as he liked a number of superimposed photos of himself in Spurs kits in social media previously. One of the come and get me pleas in the modern transfer era.

Mauricio Pochettino has yet to make a signing in the winter window. If they are light anywhere, it has to be in the striker slot. Harry Kane has been enjoying a cracking run of form but his deputy Vincent Janssen has never quite made a good name since arriving from AZ Alkmaar. Bruma has oodles of pace and trickery which translates to goals and assists in the final third. Besides that, his ability to play across the attacking trident would be a trump card.

These attributes do highlight that he belongs in a Mauricio Pochettino team but such negative impressions off the pitch might just have the Argentinean thinking again. Or else, he would be tempted to throw in the second offer, as Bruma is no longer in the good books of the Galatasaray boss. It could go either way, but the latter seems to be a sort of modern transfer ploy.

Tottenham’s next Premier League tie will be against Sunderland at the Stadium of Lights, followed by a home fixture where they welcome Middlesbrough.
