It looks as though Tottenham Hotspur are actually going to make a January transfer signing for the first time since they bought Dele Alli from MK Dons in 2015. French sport outlet RMC is now announcing that personal terms have been agreed between Spurs and Paris St. Germain for the transfer of Lucas Moura.
Last we heard, the two clubs were still squabbling over the transfer fee. Reports from Thursday said that Spurs had offered somewhere in the region of €25m for Lucas, while PSG were holding out for €30m. But considering that PSG are desperate to offload Lucas to help stay within Financial Fair Play regulations and all parties want this move to happen, it’s not a stretch to say that this will probably be worked out sooner rather than later.
We don’t yet know what those personal terms are, but it’s apparently a four year deal. ESPN’s Dan Kilpatrick is reporting that Lucas is currently on £75,000/week in wages at PSG, which is well in the range of what Tottenham can afford, so it seems there’s nothing to worry about there.
For God’s sake, don’t start moving now!
