Cristian Romero delivers message to Atalanta ahead of Tottenham move: “You will have one more fan.”

Argentine defender Cristian Romero has delivered a message to Atalanta, ahead of his move to Tottenham Hotspur this summer.

The ex-Genoa defender is set to join Spurs for an initial fee of €50 million and the Lilywhites will pay Atalanta bonuses of €5 million too.

The defender delivered a message to Atalanta fans, saying that they’ll always have a fan in him and he believes that Serie A gave him the platform to prove himself when he was about to quit football.

While leaving for London, he said: “Thank you Atalanta, in London you will have one more fan. Tottenham wanted me from day one, I have to pay them back on the pitch. Three years ago, I was almost about to quit, the Serie A made me grow “

Romero had signed permanently for Atalanta from Juventus before heading to Spurs. He had spent the 2020/21 season on loan at La Dea and was the Defender of the Year for the campaign.
