With Portugal now out of the Confederations Cup, the country’s press can once again focus on transfer for national team players.
Adrien Silva is one of those who will stop being reported about in the context of the national team, and return to being reported about with relation to a possible transfer.
One of the Sporting players who could be leaving this summer, Tottenham Hotspur are the only club said to be keen on a deal for Adrien.
As reported by Portuguese newspaper Record today, Spurs have already made a €20m offer for the player, which was rejected. Now, Sporting have set a new price which would be enough to take him: €30m.
This has been reported before, and it sounds like Sporting are still waiting for Tottenham to make a new approach. But considering the long time without an update, maybe Spurs are not that keen on the player.
Adrien’s links to Tottenham didn’t start off in the most concrete way, with an opinion article being turned into transfer fact to make a story. It was then a surprise to see the €20m offer reported, so it would be a shock if they moved to €30m.
