Fabrizio Romano reveals why Bryan Gil fell did not leave Tottenham on loan
Speaking with Ian Paul Joy on Que Golazo youtube channel, popular Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has revealed why the loan deal for talented Spanish Spurs winger Bryan Gil fell through in the summer.
Romano has revealed that there was an agreement that the Lilywhites had with Valencia to loan out the youngster. However, Spurs were unable to find a replacement soon enough to make the loan deal happen.
Antonio Conte was apparently very adamant about the fact that he needed a replacement if Gil was to leave. Although other options like Yannick Carrasco and Ruslan Malinvoskyi were considered, Spurs landed neither of them.
Romano claims that the deal to send Gil to the Spanish club had no buy option included in it and the player would have just spent this season in Spain. However, it is not to be and the 21-year-old is stagnating at Hotspur Way now.
Speaking about the deal that fell through, Romano went on to give details on why it did not eventually happen.
“There was an agreement in principle. Tottenham were not able to find a replacement for him and Antonio Conte and [Fabio] Paratici were prepared to let him go only in case they had the opportunity to find another player”
It remains to be seen what happens to Gil in the January transfer window. For a young player, stagnating on the bench is not a good thing and the Spaniard is talented and would want to get regular game time.
Yet to feature even for a single minute till now in the campaign in both the Premier League and the Champions League, it remains to be seen if Antonio Conte finds a way to give the Spaniard a few minutes.

For a person who showed so much promise during his time at Eibar and Sevilla, it feels like Gil’s career is going nowhere. It needs to be corrected soon though as the winger is too good a talent to be wasted on the bench.
