Conte makes Cristiano Romero claim after confirming Tottenham will buy the defender
Tottenham would sign Cristian Romero in the summer of 2021 from Serie A outfit Atalanta.
The deal itself was an initial loan move that expires at the end of this season.
However, as confirmed by Antonio Conte recently, Tottenham have an obligation to buy the Argentine stopper and will be doing so: “He’s on loan but we have an obligation to buy. We bought him!”
Conte then continued to speak about Romero, stating that the 23-year-old is perfect for the Premier League:
“He is perfect for this league,” the Italian said. “But if you can play in this league you can play in all the leagues in the world. The problem is when you stay in another league, you have to ask if you can play in the Premier League. But when you play here, you can play in any league in the world.
“Because the intensity, the quality, the physicality that you have here is not present in other leagues. For sure Romero is able to play in this league. This league is a perfect suit for him.”
“This league is a perfect suit for him.”
Tottenham will make Cristian Romero’s move permanent, confirms Antonio Conte.
