Romero has been a huge success story at N17, helping Tottenham secure a Premier League top-four place.

Indeed, The Athletic claims Spurs’ Premier League rivals think Romero is in the same bracket as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

Now, Romano has said on his YouTube channel that, for all intents and purposes, the 24-year-old is a Tottenham player now.

“Cristian Romero, the buy obligation clause will be activated very soon,” revealed Romano.

“He’s 100 percent a Tottenham player for £40million.

“Congrats to Tottenham, because it was a huge signing. Really smart and interesting one.”

“One of the most important players”

Really, there was no chance that Spurs were going to pass up on Romero.

He has dazzled in his maiden Premier League season, and he’s still got so much room to grow as a player.

“He’s absolutely brilliant,” Tottenham legend Ossie Ardiles told Tottenham’s official website.

“I was incredibly happy when he arrived at the club, because his CV was wonderful. I didn’t see him play in Italy a lot. But he was voted best defender in Serie A, and so on.

“I have, however, seen him play a lot for Argentina and in a very, very good team right now, he’s one of the most important players. Certainly, number one in defence.

“I was happy when he arrived. I knew it would take a little time to adapt, but he has adapted quickly. He’s also from my hometown in Argentina, Cordoba.”
