8 Goals And 8 Assists – Tottenham Complete £12.7m Deal To Sign Portuguese Ace, But Club Release Official Statement Denying It

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur have long been linked with Galatasaray winger Bruma and the latest report from Turkish Newspaper Sabah confirms that Spurs have agreed on a €15million (£12.7million) deal to sign the Portuguese winger.

Bruma is considered as one of the top most talents in European football and has grown in stature in the past few years. He is now 22 and is quickly growing into one of the hottest wingers among the current generation of stars. He initially emerged as a wonder kid from Sporting Lisbon, before moving to Galatasaray in 2013.

Since signing for Galatasaray, he has scored 4 goals and 12 assists in 48 games for the club and has had loan spells with Gaziantepspor and Real Sociedad.

He won the Silver shoe award in 2013 U-20 FIFA World Cup and has also won the Segunda Liga Breakthrough Player of the Year award for the 2012-13 season. That is when he rose to prominence and has always been viewed as one of the most talented youngsters around.

This season, Galatasaray decided to keep hold of the winger and hence, he has featured 30 times for the Turkish club. He has scored 8 goals and has assisted 8 as well, after playing for a total of 2585 minutes across all competitions.

His exploits with Galatasaray have certainly attracted interest from all over Europe and it seems like Tottenham are one of the suitors too. It was claimed that Tottenham have completed a deal for the Portuguese starlet but Gala were quick to refute those claims and have said that there has been no contact from any of the clubs regarding a move for the player. Galatasaray have released a statement on their official website denying the story about Bruma moving to Tottenham.

Here is the translated quote from Galatasaray’s official website;

“Today in Sabah Newspaper, our professional footballer Bruma wants a 100% raise as a condition to make a new contract with our club and this request was rejected by our Board of Directors and a notice was sent to our player that the transfer proposal from English Premier League team Tottenham Hotspur was taken into consideration.”

“In this news that is not really interesting, there is no official offer to reach us, just as there is no secret agreement for the price of the club that has been named.”

Spurs have been linked with a lot of wingers, with one another prominent name being Wilfried Zaha. Tottenham’s struggle for quality in the wide areas has been seen quite clearly this season and hence, they are believed to be on the hunt for a top quality pacey young winger like Bruma and Zaha.

Only if Galatasaray are releasing a statement just to keep the deal as secretive as possible, then Tottenham fans can get ready to witness one of the most talented youngsters in Europe don the Whites of North London.
