Willian José, one step away from signing for Tottenham de Mourinho

first_imgThis season Willian José had been one of the architects of the great performance of those of Imanol Alguacil, since He is the top scorer of the team with eight goals in 21 games.

Eriksen, to Inter: time despaired and proved Zidane right

first_imgEriksen’s intentions were clear in summer, when he was very close to going to Manchester United in the hours before the market closed in England.

From the end of the transfer window in England until the end of Spain, Eriksen kept the faith that in the offices of Madrid they would convince Zidane of the convenience of its reinforcement, for its football and for being a market opportunity. The Danish knew firsthand that Zizou had stopped his transfer. The Frenchman did not move from there and for the then still Tottenham player opened a period of uncertainty.

The new signing of Inter waited for it until it could not do more and, aware that Zidane did not love him, even having a pre-agreement with the Madrid club, he has accepted the Milanese proposal.center_img If the question of what would happen to his future did not worry Eriksen too much, it was because he had the advantage of finishing the contract in 2020. Levy had to accept a reasonable price for him, finally about 20 million euros, or Tottenham would see him leave for free in July. His departure from London is the result of the exhaustion of Eriksen’s patience and a Zidane election backed by the passage of time: Danish is a very interesting player at a bargain price, but Madrid has managed perfectly without him.last_img read more
