Tottenham Hotspur: Jack Pitt-Brooke says Cristian Romero deal is best thing Fabio Paratici has done

Journalist Jack Pitt-Brooke has claimed that signing Cristian Romero is the best thing Fabio Paratici has done for Tottenham Hotspur as the centre-back agrees a new deal with the club. 

Earlier this week, Spurs announced that the Argentinian would be committing his future to Antonio Conte’s side as his initial loan switch from Atalanta has turned into a permanent move that will see him remain in north London until 2027.

According to The Athletic, as part of his loan deal, Tottenham had the option to buy the defender for an initial €50m (£42.5m) with a further €5m (£4.25m) in add-ons, and so he hasn’t arrived for cheap.

Despite that heavy price, it seems as though Romero has already done enough to justify his price tag, with Pitt-Brooke making a big claim about the defender amid this recent news. 

He took to Twitter to say: “Paratici pushing for this signing last summer, and eventually deciding to pay close to Atalanta’s asking price is still the best thing he has done at Tottenham. Even ahead of getting Kulusevski and Bentancur, I think.”

Is Cristian Romero Spurs' best defender?





TIF Thoughts on Cristian Romero and Spurs…

This latest development won’t exactly come as a shock to fans, with Romero already playing twice in the Premier League this season – so it was clear he would remain with Spurs beyond his one-year loan.

Even so, supporters will enjoy the official announcement and be glad to see one of their key players commit to the club for the next five years.

Having already won the Copa America during his 11 international caps with Argentina, Romero certainly is a high-calibre defender. No doubt, Paratici, Conte and co will be hoping he can help deliver some silverware at Spurs in the near future.
