Report: The idea of Tottenham sending player back to Italy cannot be ruled out

Il Bianconero have claimed that Dejan Kulusevski has no intention of returning to Juventus this summer since Massimiliano Allegri is still in charge.

Kulusevski’s loan spell at Spurs comes to an end this summer, with Tottenham having the option to make the deal permanent for £30.5m (Fabrizio Romano).

It was suggested by Goal Italia a couple of days ago that the North London club might not sign the 22-year-old permanently now that they are likely to finish outside of the top four.

The report explained that failing to qualify for the Champions League would limit Tottenham’s transfer budget and that the decision on the winger is likely to be made by the club’s next head coach.

Il Bianconero have also reported something similar, explaining that Spurs will now have to reflect on whether they want to purchase the winger.

With the ‘revolution’ currently going on in N17, it is said that the possibility of the club opting against signing Kulusevski permanently ‘cannot be excluded’.

However, it is asserted that the player does not want to go back to Turin since Allegri is in charge and could thus ‘ask for a transfer’ to a different club this summer if he does not make a switch to Tottenham.

Even if the next Tottenham head coach does not rate Kulusevski very highly (which is unlikely), it would still be in Spurs’ interest to buy him for £30m as the Swede is worth a lot more than that and could thus be sold for a profit later on.

So, I am confident that the winger will make a permanent switch to North London this summer.
