Heung-min says goodbye to brother, puts Tottenham stay out of mind

Tottenham defender Emmerson Royale has already made up his mind to leave Spurs. He wants a new challenge at AC Milan.

European transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano tweeted on his personal social media account on Wednesday, “AC Milan are looking for a new right full-back. Emerson remains the main option alongside Thiago Santos. Emerson wants a move and is eager to join AC Milan,” the report said.

Italy’s Calcio Mercato has shed more light on Emerson’s rumored move to AC Milan. The media outlet reported that ‘AC Milan’s contacts with Emerson have intensified over the past few days. The transfer could be easier to finalize as Emerson favors a move to AC Milan. Recently, he received an offer from Villarreal, but so far, their project hasn’t satisfied him. Now, Emerson has entrusted his agent with negotiations for a move to AC Milan, according to the report.

AC Milan have already agreed to meet Emerson’s demands. Calcio Mercato added: “Contacts with the player have already begun. The negotiations have been positive, with an agreement in principle already reached on both salary and contract duration, and all bonuses and details must be defined as the clubs come to an agreement,” said Calciomercato, explaining how far along the negotiations are at the moment.

Now all that remains is for Tottenham and AC Milan to agree on a transfer fee. ‘A meeting has been scheduled between AC Milan’s transfer market representatives and Tottenham’s hierarchy to find a way to reach an agreement on the player’s valuation. Spurs want more than €25 million, while AC Milan are unwilling to pay more than €17 million for Emerson, including bonuses,” the report said.

With Tottenham’s acquisition of Archie Gray, there is no reason to keep Emerson, so the deal is expected to be finalized in the €20 million range. Once the clubs have finalized an agreement, Emerson will be able to end his Tottenham career.

Emerson recently gave an interview in which he said that he was very grateful for the interest AC Milan have shown in him. “I heard that AC Milan asked Tottenham about me. AC Milan is a great club. I’m proud of the interest,” he said, adding that he is open to new challenges.

Emerson was born in 1999, so he is still a young defender, but his time at Spurs was not a successful one. Emerson joined Barcelona as a youngster and was highly touted by the club. However, there was no place for the promising youngster, so Barcelona sent him out on loan to Real Betis.

After two seasons at Betis, where he gained experience as a first-team regular, Emerson returned to Barcelona. He wanted to make the leap to the first team, but the club had other ideas. At the time, Barcelona was in a financial crisis and had to sell players. Tottenham realized Barcelona”s financial 19사이트 situation and made an offer for Emerson, and the transfer was finalized.

Emerson joined Spurs for the 2021-2022 season, but he didn”t perform as well as expected. Antonio Conte labeled him as a first-choice right wing-back and gave him regular playing time, but his attacking ability was not what Spurs fans and Conte wanted.

With just one goal and one assist in 31 league appearances, he gave Conte a lot of problems. Eventually, Pedro Foro was brought in and Emerson began to slowly lose his position. This didn’t change when Enze Postecoglou arrived at Tottenham. Completely overshadowed by Foro, Emerson was reduced to a backup left-back.

What endeared him to Tottenham, though, was his chemistry with his teammates. Emerson once told a Brazilian broadcaster, “I think Son Heung-min is Brazilian. He’s a friend of ours. His mentality is very similar to Brazilians. I really like Son Heung-min,” he once said. In fact, Son and Emerson were close off the field as well.
