Did Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy turn down manager Antonio Conte’s request? Despite Conte crying out for expensive players all season, he again chose ‘value for money’.
British media ‘The Sun’ reported on the 10th (Korean time), ‘Tottenham is aiming to sign Brighton’s star Leandro Trossar in January. It is known that transfer negotiations are going fast.”
Trosar is a Belgian striker born in 1994. The main position is left wing forward overlapping Son Heung-min. He can also play the role of an attacking midfielder and striker instead.
Trosar is showing off his recent upswing, but he’s not a player Conte will welcome. Conte insisted that Tottenham need to sign two or three players worth between £60 million and £70 million (approximately KRW 90 billion to KRW 105 billion) every time the transfer market opens for Tottenham to challenge for the title. Transfermarkt, a site specializing in transfers, values Trossar at 30 million euros (approximately £26 million).
In other words, Conte wants a small elite even if he spends the same money. On the other hand, Levy prefers a number of mid-range prospects or veterans with good cost-effectiveness. Conte aims for the top with clear reinforcements, but Levy prioritizes business success and financial security. 메이저놀이터
From this point of view, Trossar is more of a complete Levi’s pick.
British media ‘HITC’ said, ‘It will fit Tottenham’s reality to sign a player with potential cheaply. But keep in mind that this is not the way Conte likes it.’
Conte’s contract with Tottenham runs until this summer. Tottenham wanted to extend the contract since June of last year, but Conte delayed the negotiations. The biggest reason is, of course, Levi. Levy’s management style and Conte’s ambition cannot coexist. Conte has stated publicly on several occasions that he will have no choice but to leave Tottenham if these deficiencies are not met.
In other words, if the transfer market this January rolls according to Levy’s will, it is highly likely that Conte will not renew his contract with Tottenham. Attention is focusing on what kind of compromise Levy will be able to make with Conte.
