Cristian Romero has completed his transfer to Tottenham from Atalanta. Rome joins Tottenham for a fee of around €55 million after Atalanta accepted the offer.
Cristian Romero’s dream was to join Tottenham and a personal agreement was reached a week before Atalanta accepted the offer.
Barcelona have never been in the race. Romero was pushing for Tottenham and now the deal is at the final stages of paperwork which is set to be signed soon.
However, Atalanta are also closing on Merih Demiral from Juventus on loan with a buy option around €30m total as a replacement to Cristian Romero despite interest from Borussia Dortmund.
Cristian Romero will fly to England to join Tottenham within the next 48 hours and the paperwork will be signed.
