Report: New Porro to Spurs fee has increased and includes Marcus Edwards percentage

Record have reported that Tottenham’s fee to sign Pedro Porro has now changed since their latest talks with Sporting Lisbon over the past 24 hours. 

The Portuguese publication claims that Spurs will now pay €47m (£41.29m) for the right-wing-back, as well as relinquishing 15% of their sell-on fee for Sporting forward, Marcus Edwards. That still leaves Tottenham with 35% of their former academy starlet’s sell-on clause.

It has previously been reported that Edwards has a release clause of £52 million, but Spurs continue to hold a 50% sell-on clause which dates back to when the youngster left North London for Vitoria (Telegraph).

Gianluca Di Marzio reported this evening that Tottenham had finally agreed a fee for Pedro Porro at €45million (£39.9m), which was reinforced by Fabrizio Romano.

This comes after the deal was said to be in jeopardy after Sporting Lisbon moved the goalposts and fresh talks were required (Record).

Spurs Web Opinion:

Honestly, it’s probably more than Tottenham wanted to give away, but it was all about getting the deal over the line in the end. Spurs may not have survived another dose of bad news after the last month at the club. Fingers crossed there are no more changes from Sporting.
