Levy will demand “huge sums” for Spurs star

Tottenham Hotspur defender Cristian Romero has been linked with a move to the mighty Real Madrid this summer, per The Evening Standard. Former Spurs defender Alan Hutton claims that Daniel Levy would demand “huge sums” for the North Londoners to consider selling the former Atalanta defender this summer.

Cristian Romero has become an integral part of the Lilywhites squad and has proved his credentials as one of the best defenders in Europe in the recently concluded season. He has not only his defensive abilities but also his leadership potential and top-notch mentality.

Given the fact that Spurs paid a hefty £42 million to land Romero in 2021, they would only be looking to make a significant profit if the officials at the club were willing to sell the 26-year-old this summer. Hutton doubts that Tottenham would be willing to entertain the thought of selling the Argentine defender, given how important he is to the team, and expects Levy to play hardball in any possible negotiations regarding Romero’s sale.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Tottenham News, Hutton said:

“It would depend on where he’s going; if we’re talking about Real Madrid and these sorts of teams, then I’m sure he might want to see what they’re saying. I think for Daniel Levy to sell someone like that, who’s a main player for the team, it would have to be huge sums of money first and foremost to allow him to go.

“Like I said, they would need options to come in; I don’t think they could allow him to go and not have a top-level center-back coming in to start the season. So yes, there are a lot of ifs and buts there, but I wouldn’t want to see him leave. I think he and Van de Ven are a very sound partnership, and Van de Ven, I think, makes him better as well.”
