Claudio Curti, the agent of Tottenham defender Juan Foyth, has hinted that the Argentinian defender could leave Spurs this summer.

Foyth, who joined from Estudiantes in 2017, showed plenty of promise and potential under Mauricio Pochettino, but has struggled for minutes since the arrival of Jose Mourinho in November.

The defender has made just seven appearances in all competitions this season – with only three coming whilst the current Tottenham boss has been in charge.

Foyth’s last game for Spurs came at Norwich City in defender, but after making a costly error which led to the opening goal, he was hauled off at half-time at Carrow Road and hasn’t even been named in a matchday squad since.

Yesterday, we relayed a story from Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, suggesting that the 23-year-old has been offered to Barcelona this summer. And although Curti admitted that those reports are just rumours, he did state that Foyth is likely to move on this summer if his game time doesn’t improve.


Asked about Foyth’s future, Curti told talkSPORT: “For what has happened in recent times, we don’t think so. But we still have a pending talk with Tottenham to clarify the future.

“We don’t judge the coach’s decisions and we don’t get involved in his job, but what’s clear is that the club’s project with Juan has changed.

“We have a pending chat with Tottenham and for sure the topic will come up.

“If he can’t have minutes in Tottenham we will have to look at the best options for him to develop and play anywhere else.

“Juan is grateful to Tottenham, but he needs to have more minutes to grow as a player and he also needs to hold his place in the national team. The only way to do that is to compete.

“Surely he is not happy, but he is a professional, and he will finish the season in the best way.”

Foyth’s representative also commented on those recent Barcelona links. “For now, they are just rumours,” he admitted.

“I have no doubt that he can play in Barcelona, ​​his characteristics are ideal. He still has to keep growing.

“We have been consulted by several teams for him and his situation at Tottenham.”
