£26m star drops hint, follows Tottenham on Instagram

Emerson Royal has reportedly completed a Tottenham Hotspur medical and has now dropped a further hint of a move – following Spurs on Instagram.

The 22-year-old defender is expected to complete a £26million move to Tottenham on deadline day, joining the club on a five-year deal (Goal).

It comes after his two-year loan spell at Real Betis came to an end, with Barca retaining the rights to sign the Brazil man after that loan ended.

But in Barcelona’s first three league games, he has only started once – clocking up just 90 minutes in total out of a possible 270 minutes.

Emerson’s announcement is growing closer. Now, the player has dropped an even further hint over a move – by following Spurs on Instagram.

It is a brilliant bit of business from Fabio Paratici, once again. The sporting director has been praised for the players has he has already brought in.

It was a coup to get Cristian Romero – Serie A’s best defender in 2020-21. The Argentine swapped Champions League side Atalanta for Spurs.

Pierluigi Gollini is likely to be a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris. Bryan Gil has looked excellent when given a run out by Spurs.

Gil was the best deal of the four – after Pape Sarr joined but remained on loan at Metz. That is because it was a bargain, and got rid of Erik Lamela.

But Emerson would eclipse them all. A player worth far more than £26million, it solves what is probably Tottenham’s biggest issue right now.
