Luka Vuskovic is expected to join Tottenham Hotspur despite Bayern Munich’s interest in the Hajduk Split defender.
Instead of moving to Tottenham Hotspur, Luka Vuskovic, who might have joined Harry Kane at Bayern Munich, instead going to Tottenham.
According to 90min, Vuskovic is allegedly turning down interest from a number of prominent European clubs.
According to reports, Bayern Munich and Barcelona spoke with Vuskovic’s representatives in preparation for a prospective deal.
Even earlier in the year, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain made bids, but Vuskovic has since made up his mind.
Hajduk offered Vuskovic the freedom to choose his next destination, allowing him to reject Bayern and choose Tottenham instead.
Harry Kane’s chance to join Luka Vuskovic at Bayern Munich is turned down.
Even before all the other interested teams were revealed, the news of Vuskovic joining Tottenham was fantastic.
The 16-year-old has become one of Europe’s best wonderkids and has already appeared in a few games for Hajduk’s first squad.
Those stars typically leave for other teams, but Tottenham is poised to pull off a spectacular heist, leaving fans awestruck.
This is made more sweeter by the fact that Bayern had negotiations with Vuskovic, who ultimately decided against playing with Harry Kane in Bavaria.
Kane left Tottenham to join Bayern in their pursuit of championships, but Spurs supporters will view Vuskovic’s transfer choice as a slight victory over the dominant German club.
What did Tottenham pay to get Luka Vuskovic?
According to the source, Tottenham and a number of other clubs have now reached an agreement on a deal that would likely cost them roughly £13 million.
However, Vuskovic chose Tottenham, and this is a significant deal for Spurs.
It’s risky to spend £13 million on a 16-year-old, but it becomes even riskier when you consider that Vuskovic won’t be eligible to play for Tottenham until 2025.
Vuskovic will have to wait a while before making his Tottenham debut because of post-Brexit regulations prohibiting English clubs from signing foreign players before they are 18 years old.
Tottenham will be convinced that they have bought a potential star despite spending this type of money on a young boy who won’t even play for the club for the better part of two years.
