PSG set to rival Real Madrid for Tottenham star Richarlison
According to Fichajes.net, French giants PSG are set to rival Real Madrid for Tottenham Hotspur star striker Richarlison in the summer.
According to ESPN, Real Madrid have identified Tottenham’s Brazilian star striker Richarlison as a possible option to reinforce their forward line in the summer. However, they will not be alone in their interest.
Richarlison has struggled for game time during his short Tottenham career so far and is yet to open his account in the league. However, his work rate and energy has made him a crucial player for Antonio Conte off the bench when fit.
It’s no surprise then that Paris Saint-Germain see him as a potential replacement for Neymar, who has been linked with a move away from the French club this summer. Richarlison has all the qualities that make him an ideal fit for the Parisian outfit.
For Tottenham, however, losing Richarlison would be a huge blow. We signed him for big money from Everton just in the summer. The Brazilian has not really had a fair crack at the whip here at N17.
With Harry Kane’s future at the club uncertain, Richarlison’s importance to the team could be on the upwards trend should the Englishman leave. It also doesn’t make sense for the club to sell a player who was signed to a lot of expectations.
Tottenham have been here before. They’ve seen their best players leave for bigger clubs in recent years and that is due to a lack of ambition when it comes to trophies. Richarlison might be tempted by a move to Madrid or Paris, where he is almost sure of silverware.
If Richarlison does leave in the summer, then Tottenham will be hoping to recoup as much as they can from the transfer fee they paid to the Toffees in the summer as signing a replacement becomes a necessity.
