Juan Foyth could join Villarreal from Tottenham, Rennes interested


Juan Foyth could be joining Villarreal from Tottenham with Rennes also reportedly being interested.

Foyth has been linked with a move away from Tottenham for several months and Villarreal is reportedly very closing to signing the 22 year old. Not getting much playing time under current coach Jose Mourinho, Villarreal are looking to sign the Argentine on a loan deal. Per a report by AS in Spain, it would be on a season long deal.

Villarreal aren’t the only club interested in signing him as RMC Sport in France claim that Rennes want to bring in the defender. The French club would also want to bring him in on a one year loan deal.

He has been selected by Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni for the World Cup qualifiers this month.


  1. Villarreal would be a nice move for Foyth. He should defenetly play more in defence. Infact as per me he is the most stand out young defender of all our young defence prospects. The more he plays the more he becomes matured. One of the guarantees of our defence on future for years to come. He is tailor made for defending. Need to bulk up more. But in time he will bulk up for sure with age.

    Its funny most of us critisise great coaches like Guardiola, Mourinjho, Bielsa etc etc. The point is don’t they see what some of us sees in a player? My answer is they definitely do see. Far far better than us. But a player may not sometimes fit to their formation. That’s why they r ignoring that player.

    For God’s sake these coaches r analysing each nuke and corners of their own players and the opponents too. How on earth we can have better view of the player. No chance. We are only seeing a player on field. Where as a coach is seeing a player behind the scenes too. How his attitude is, how his work rate is etc etc.

  2. Rennes are doing really well in league 1 and they’re playing CL so those are massive positives (especially the latter), however Foyth would have a hella hard time displacing the 2 current CBs that they have, although their RB is only 19yrs so Juan could get a chance to play there. Also Renne’s team consists almost entirely of french players, which would make Foyth’s adaptation that much harder.
    Villareal is a respected club, Emery is a good coach and Spain is always easier for Argentines so the choice is clear.

    I truly hope that someone, be it Emery or someone else, would realize that Foyth is MADE for midfield, the kid would make a killer CM/DM if given the chance, infact if Mourinho had an ounce of vision he would’ve tried Juan on the right side of a midfield 3 where he could shift into RB position and cover for Aurier while he [Aurier] does his marauding – yet often irresponsible – runs forwards, but alas…..

    • Fulham, Valencia are on active lookout for CB. Villarreal is best option for him. But deal still not closing is worrrying. Something looks wrong.

    • Otamendi is there because of leadership. He is filling the role Mascherano had a the back. Every other player in our back 4 has been constantly shifted and experimental other than Taglafico.

      Otamendi is on decline, but he is experienced, gritty, very good at passing the ball forward, and phenomenal in the air, something we lack through our the rest of the team.

      The key to having Otamendi in the 11 is to balance his erratic defending with someone more calm and composed with height, Garay was a prime example. Pezella is the best option today for that role.

    • They did not reject any offer, they sent a counter offer in which they ask for more money now than previously stated in the offer from Fiorentina. They basically accept the offer they just need changes of part of the overall offer.

    • If and I mean IF le viola really offered 12 mill (Olé is relatively reliable) then I truly doubt River would reject it, because they need to balance their books and Lucas needs to move to Europe already. Can’t blame the millionaires for wanting a few more millions and if this does happen it would be a great move for Quarta who would have to fight for a place initially because he’ll be 3rd choice CB but with his skill and experience he would make noise in serie A.

  3. Will be great if it goes through. Any chance of him getting RB minutes in Villarreal?

    Leeds were close of signing Bayern’s Cuisance, but he failed his medicals… Still a chance for De Paul?

    • I wish him playing as center back. That’s where the lad can grow into a potential world class CB . RB he will always be makeshift & not a natural.
