Tottenham lose: Juan Sebastian Veron confirms Juan Foyth’s PSG move

Tottenham are still waiting

Spurs fans are growing impatient.

With less than a couple of weeks until the start of the new Premier League season, Tottenham remain the only club in the EPL yet to sign a player this summer.

Last season’s Premier League runners-up have sold Kyle Walker to Man City for over 50 million pounds, however they’re yet to bring in any fresh faces.

And, on Saturday night in South America, Spurs fans have been informed by former Man United star Juan Sebastian Veron that Argentine defender Juan Foyth will not be joining the club either.

Spurs lose

For a few weeks now, Tottenham have been linked with Estudiantes 19-year-old defender Juan Foyth.

It has been claimed that Spurs’s initial offer of £5.3 million plus £2.3 million in bonuses was rejected by Estudiantes for Foyth.

At the same time, French moneybags PSG have been closing in on the Spurs target, and according to Juan Veron, the teenager is now on his way to Paris.

Ya estamos!!🇦🇷🇦🇷

Veron talks

On Saturday night, Veron, who is the Estudiantes chairman, has confirmed that Foyth is PSG bound. As reported on ESPN, the Argentine legend said:

We already have an agreement between PSG and Estudiantes for Juan. All that is left is for his representatives to strike a deal.

Foyth’s sale will be for more than €10m.

PSG’s capture of the Argentine defender could kickstart a mega week in the French capital.

If the rumours are true, PSG could be about to sign Neymar in a deal worth half a billion pounds.
