Tottenham are about to pull off an impressive coup by signing Radu Dragusin ahead of Bayern Munich, but recent comments emerging from the player’s camp may leave the north London club less than impressed.
Spurs agreed to sign the outgoing Genoa centre-back in a deal worth around £25million ahead of Bayern, who lodged a rival bid at the eleventh hour.
By that time, Dragusin had already given his word to Ange Postecoglou, and the German giants were forced to retreat.
But the 21-year-old’s agent, Florin Manea, risked backlash by leaving the door ajar for a move to Bayern in the future.
“We stopped dead,” he told GSP. “We were on our way to the airport. I said we have to think carefully and evaluate. Bayern are one of the biggest clubs.
“I can’t believe I turned Bayern down! But that’s the decision. I took it with Radu and his family. I informed Bayern that this was the decision, that they came in at the last minute and that it was difficult to change our decision.”
