Guys! An Erik Lamela deal is close! It's almost done! Again! You know, just like all those other times when a deal was close and then didn't quite get done yet because talks were still ongoing. But seriously guys, this time it's for real! This time it's really close!
It's ya boi Gianluca Di Marzio.
Lamela-@SpursOfficialc, it's almost done: €30M + 5M bonus (3 for games played and 2 for qual. champions), 5 year contract for him #lamespurs— Gianluca Di Marzio (@dimarzio) August 23, 2013
So, first of all, lol at the hashtag. Nice objective journalism, brah. Second, that's a good price for Spurs and it's good that we're getting him on a 5-year contract, provided all this is true.
I'm sure that you'll all join me in not being able to wait for Bale to be sold and Lamela to sign on the dotted line. I don't want to hear the name 'Gianluca Di Marzio' again until January. And even then I could do without.
