'No Spurs': Fabrizio Romano has a disappointing Friday night transfer update for Tottenham and West Ham fans
Tottenham might have been in the race to sign Memphis Depay for some weeks now, but it appears it’s all but over on that front now.
Spurs have been linked with Depay as recently as two days ago, when it was suggested Fabio Paratici had made a last ditch call to Barcelona and Depay’s reps to try and do a deal. Of course, Depay is available on a free transfer and according to reports today, was contacted by West Ham over a stunning move to East London.
However, any move to England now seems unlikely, with Fabrizio Romano taking to Twitter this evening to suggest a deal for Depay to join Italian giants, Juventus, is in the pipeline.
As can be seen, Romano says a two-year deal is on the table for Depay, while the journalist says ‘no Spurs’ to almost confirm Tottenham’s hopes are done here.
For Depay, a move to Juventus is something of a bonus given his time in Barcelona has been poor to say the least.
The Dutchman has remained a regular with the Netherlands but hasn’t been able to show the form he did in Lyon while in Spain. A move to Juventus, of course, gives him a massive platform to try and showcase his talents once again.
TBR’s View: Time To End Tottenham And Depay Talk
While Memphis Depay is a good player, it’s probably about time everyone moved on from talk of a move to Tottenham.
For one, he doesn’t really fit the squad at the moment and would be on the bench. Yes, he would add quality and relieve pressure on star players, but he’s surely not going to want to sit around.
Tottenham need to move on from this and after a busy summer already, Conte might simply be happy with what he has.
