Manager Pep Guardiola praised Tottenham’s signing of Pedro Poro (24).
Tottenham finally succeeded in reinforcing the right wingback in the winter transfer market. For several seasons, Tottenham’s right wing-back has been their biggest weakness. Emerson Royale and Matt Doherty lost the fans’ trust with their ups and downs throughout the season. Jed Spence, signed last summer, was not in Antonio Conte’s plans.
Eventually, in January, he promoted the recruitment of a wingback and dropped a prisoner. Poro is a wingback with excellent attack power, and is the type Tottenham are looking for. Sharp crosses from his side are his strength, and he actively participates in attacks. Depending on the situation, he moves inside the box and threatens the goal. His ability to produce offensive points is also excellent, with only 11 assists from him this season.
The recruitment process was not easy. Negotiations with Sporting over the transfer fee were a long-term battle. At the last minute, contracts were reached and then broken. 메이저놀이터 Tottenham did not give up on signing the prisoner and reached an agreement 11 minutes before the transfer window closed. The transfer fee was 45 million euros (approximately 60 billion won).
Poro, who grew up in Girona, moved to Manchester City in 2019. But he never had a chance and he went on loan to Valladolid and Sporting. Manchester City sent a prisoner to Sporting and inserted a buyback clause of 20 million pounds (about 21 billion won) (a clause allowing players to be re-recruited if a certain transfer fee is paid). As a result, there was also news that Man City, not Tottenham, could re-enter the prisoner.
Manchester City manager Guardiola has revealed that he has not considered signing a prisoner. According to European football transfer market expert Fabricio Romano, Guardiola said: “A prisoner was on the list, but he wasn’t thinking about a buyback. He decided to play for Tottenham. He will be a very good signing for Tottenham.”
Tottenham will play round 22 of the 2022-23 season English Premier League (EPL) with Man City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 1:30 am on the 6th. Poro is expected to start this day and make his Tottenham debut.
