The translation reads as follows:-
Wilmar Barrios’ future is in England. @SpursOfficial has everything agreed with the Colombian’s agent. The offer from the English club will arrive soon, which will total €23M for all of his transfer.
As part of the offer, Tottenham would gain full ownership rights to the 25-year-old who starred for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Russia.
There are doubts over the future of Mousa Dembele, with the Belgian’s contract set to expire at the end of this season. There are some who suggest that Dembele will walk away from the club next summer and look for one last big pay day in China or the Middle East.
If Barrios did move to N17, he would join compatriot Davinson Sanchez at the club.
