Cátio Bálde, the agent of Galatasaray winger Bruma, has given an update on his client’s situation.
Bruma, 22, has been linked with a possible move to Tottenham for weeks now, with reports last month suggesting a deal was “close to completion.” But Bálde claims otherwise.
After acknowledging “the existence of two offers,” the agent told Portuguese publication O Jogo (relayed by Sport Witness): “There’s no deal yet.”
He added: “Galatasaray want to renew the contract to then let him leave. They offer four years of contract, but want to include a €25m [approx. £21m] release clause. That’s where we disagree.”
Bálde also refused to reveal which clubs had offered for his client. Earlier this week, reports suggested Spurs had sent representatives to Turkey to discuss a deal for Bruma.
With just one year remaining on the winger’s contract, Tottenham are probably hoping to spend far less than £21 to acquire him. It’s obvious why Bálde isn’t keen on a release clause being included in Bruma’s new Galatasaray deal.
