    As I mentioned in my Tottenham talking points today, understand Lionel Messi was still trying to convince Barcelona to make a move for Cristian Romero in recent days, because of his belief in the defender. He’s going to be a top drawer signing for Spurs.

  3. Here’s a Google Translate of comments he gave to Sky Sports Italy ahead of traveling to London to complete his move:

    “Tottenham and [Fabio] Paratici strongly wanted me. I thank them, from day one they were interested in me, I liked the project they have for me and so that’s why I chose Tottenham. Now I have to respond on the field.

    “But first I want to thank all of Bergamo and Atalanta, the Percassi family and all my teammates. [Gasperini] who made me grow in a way I never thought I would, to everyone I say thank you.”

    “It has been an incredible year for me. I never thought I would get to this level. Right now I’m thinking that three years ago before I arrived in Italy I almost quit football. The Italian league for me has been very important, it made me grow in all aspects and I’m very happy to have played here and now I have to continue on. The Premier League is a very difficult league, but I have to be ready to do everything and continue as I did until now.”
