Transfer News: Tottenham to face off against Man United for Portuguese star

Tottenham Hotspur face heavy competition from Manchester United for Sporting star Joao Palhinha

According to the Portuguese news outlet Record (h/t The Sun), Tottenham Hotspur will face vigorous competition from Manchester United to sign Sporting star Joao Palhinha ahead of the summer transfer window. He enjoyed a rapid rise over the past year or so, which has seen him become a prominent presence in the national team as well.

Tottenham have expressed their interest to secure Palhinha’s services in the future. However, they will need to deal with Man United, who have scouted him eight times this season. Sporting Lisbon had set the asking price at £33million last summer, which caused the Red Devils to end their pursuit.

However, Ralf Rangnick’s side have intensified their interest in the Portuguese international since Sporting CP have reduced their valuation to £25million. Spurs will also need to be wary of Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United, who are also monitoring the situation ahead of next season.

A challenge awaits!

With the summer transfer window drawing close, we need to prepare ourselves to facilitate a transfer after this season. After all, the number of times the Manchester club have scouted him could indicate the degree of their interest at this moment. We would need to overcome the steep obstacle that awaits us at the end of this term for that reason.

That does not mean we can afford to take our eyes off Newcastle and Wolves since they cannot be underestimated in any case. The Magpies’ financial might and the Wanderers’ knack of prising Portuguese talents would pose a major thorn in our path to securing the signature of the 26-year-old.

We need to focus our attention mainly on getting the better of our opponents since the Sporting ace already has a desire to move to the Premier League. His manager Ruben Amorim seems to have admitted defeat, having resigned to losing the defensive midfielder.

Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici must make sure that they do not lose out on another one of their transfer targets like what had happened last month. After all, we are in a desperate state due to the lack of midfield options within the squad.

Antonio Conte must be backed properly since failure to do that would not help us extinguish the long-standing drought of silverware. Conte has proven his worth at his previous clubs, and it is up to us now to replicate the same moving forward. Palhinha can be one of the cogs to building a strong project, but only time will tell whether we can get our hands on him or not.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
