Juan Quintero

Tottenham are interested in signing Colombia star Juan Quintero but there are some complications before the deal can take place, according to the Metro.

The 25-year-old has recorded a couple of assists and has a goal to his name in the World Cup and even Real Madrid are keen to sign him up.

However, Quintero has been on loan from his parent club Porto for the last three years and only moved to Argentine club River Plate on loan for a year in January 2018.

The report claims that River can sign the player permanently if they pay €3.25m for 80% of the player’s rights, as they have already paid €500,000 as the original loan fee.

La Nueva (h/t Metro) claims that no other club can make an offer for Quintero until River’s clause comes to an end. Additionally, the Argentine club would have to give their consent to any other deal for the Colombian.

The report also claims that River would insert a release clause of €22m once Quintero becomes their player, however, Real and Spurs are willing to spend a large amount to get their man.

AS (h/t Metro) also claim that Madrid see the 25-year-old as a replacement for Mateo Kovacic and Julen Lopetegui, the new manager at the club, had coached the Colombian during their time at Porto.

The report adds that Wolverhampton Wanderers are in the fray to sign the attacking midfielder.

Quintero does seem to be one of the players in great form at the World Cup and there is no doubt his stock will rise more if Colombia progress further.

It will be interesting to see how serious we are about moving for the player and maybe things will be more clear after the match between England and Colombia in the World Cup.
