Player ‘will be sold’ to Tottenham – Official confirms proposal ‘practically impossible to reject’

Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Rosario Central’s Alejo Véliz, according to multiple claims.

There are numerous chances for the striker to end up at Spurs for $15 million [£11.8 million], according to journalist Gustavo Yarroch on Twitter.

Renzo Pantich, another journalist, asserts that Tottenham ‘will be sold’ the 19-year-old in question for the stated sum.

According to La Voz, Véliz may have played his final match for the club on Wednesday against Chaco For Ever because he’s ‘closer to departing’ for the Premier League team.

This is due to the fact that Tottenham is “one step away” from signing the Argentina U20 international, who has a $15 million release clause.

“The leaders have not made it official yet, but in recent days there was an offer from the English football club that even exceeded the numbers that Italian clubs such as Milan and Roma had approached, as well as Salernitana, which is practically impossible to reject,” a Rosario Central spokesperson said, relayed by La Voz.

Although the source of this offer is unknown, Spurs are the most likely suspect.

According to La Voz, the Argentine club wants to sell the player and also get a cut of any proceeds from a potential sale.

La Nación reports that a deal for Véliz is also “in advanced negotiation” between Rosario Central and Tottenham.

Friday’s meeting between Rosario Central’s board of directors and president Gonzalo Belloso will be used to “analyse” Spurs’ offer, which La Nación claims is worth more than $15 million.

The South American club hopes to “reach an economic agreement” with Tottenham but plans to keep the forward till the end of the current calendar year.

Véliz has played in 23 games this year and has 11 goals and an assist.

Kane will not ‘hesitate’ to stay at Spurs if Bayern fail to grant him one ‘wish’ as ‘new detail’ emerges

According to German football expert Christian Falk, Tottenham striker Harry Kane is likely to sign a contract extension if he starts the season’s opening game against Brentford.

The England captain is entering the final year of his contract with Tottenham, and chairman Daniel Levy has been fighting all summer to keep his star player in north London.

Kane’s desire to quit Spurs this summer has finally become evident, with Bayern Munich the only team now expressing a genuine interest in the 30-year-old.

According to rumours, Al-Hilal of the Saudi Pro League are ‘considering’ a move for Kane this summer after failing to recruit Kylian Mbappe, the star forward for Paris Saint-Germain.

Kane wants to decide on his future before the start of the season on August 13 against Brentford, giving Bayern Munich about ten days to negotiate a transfer cost with Tottenham.

Spurs’ £100 million asking price has been the primary roadblock thus far, with Bayern only willing to pay €100 million (£86 million) for the England international.

Their latest offer was for €95m with €10m of that fee coming in the form of add-ons and Falk claims it is “Kane’s wish that Tottenham receive a large fee for him”.

Falk wrote in his Caught Offside column: “I love my job, especially during the transfer window. You spend your time looking at the routes of private planes on the internet, as reporters, who want to be really close to the news, are already standing at the fence of the airport when the plane carrying the player and his representatives lands.

“It was the same with the Bayern bosses’ flight to London, who travelled to the UK for their poker game with Tottenham regarding Harry Kane. When the bosses landed back in Munich in the aftermath of their London adventure, CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen was smiling.

“On Monday, Bayern made their second offer to Tottenham for Kane during their talks. The Bavarian club offered €85million and an additional €10m in bonuses. Bayern are willing to reach the €100m mark if needs be, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy still wants 100m in pounds, plus add-ons. Bayern have once again made it clear that they want Kane, and the England international wants to move to Munich.

“A fresh development from this high-stakes poker game that is incredibly intriguing is that Harry Kane wants Tottenham to get paid a lot for him. That would make it simpler for the striker to part ways with the team that has been so supportive of him throughout his career.

“Kane has one year left on his present deal, and Daniel Levy is aware that he will not, under any circumstances, renew it this summer. The Englishman wouldn’t think twice about playing for Spurs for another season to further cement his legendary position; however, after that, he will depart Tottenham in search of titles to round out his outstanding career.

“At Bayern, if they can not secure a deal this summer, they are certain that Kane will keep his word and come to Munich in 2024. It is always a possibility, however, that a financially strong club could hijack the deal.

“For Tottenham, the scenario ultimately doesn’t matter. Whether it be this summer or the next, Spurs will lose Harry Kane. The only decision that is in their hands is whether the superstar leaves for a large transfer fee or for free in 2024.

“The pressure on Tottenham is growing as the start of their Premier League campaign begins on August 13 against Brentford and the player would like to be at Bayern.

“If Kane lines up for that game against Brentford, it is likely that he tells Levy that he is staying and going to see out the rest of the season.”
