According to a report by El Dia, Juan Foyth’s departure from Tottenham is practically a formality.

The Argentine defender has failed to win Jose Mourinho’s trust since the Portuguese coach arrived in North London and he admitted last month that he would prefer to leave in order to play regularly should his game time continue to be limited (TNT).

Foyth’s agent has also confirmed that he is set for crunch talks with Spurs over the 22-year-old’s future (talkSPORT).

Leeds United (Football Insider), Barcelona (Mirror) and Sampdoria (Calcio Mercato) are all reportedly interesting in signing the young centre-half this summer.

El Dia claim that the Argentina international’s former club, Estudiantes will get a part of any transfer fee that Tottenham receive for Foyth.

It is revealed that Estudiantes will by owed €1 million if Spurs get €20 million or more for Foyth and that they would receive an additional 5 per cent of the transfer fee if the Argentine international leaves England.

Spurs Web Opinion

I would be disappointed to see Foyth go as I believe he has the attributes to evolve into a top player. I expect that we will likely come to regret selling him. However, it is clear that we have to raise transfer funds this summer and so the Argentine might have to be allowed to leave.
