Emerson Royal to AC Milan

Over the past week, a number of Italian outlets have suggested that Emerson is expected to complete a switch to AC Milan in a matter of days.

This includes a recent update by Gazzetta dello Sport, who stated that the Tottenham man has already agreed personal terms on a five-year deal with the Rossoneri.

The report said that the Italian club want the transfer finalised quickly so that the 25-year-old could begin pre-season with his new teammates on Monday.

Barca could enter the race for Emerson

Mundo Deportivo have now also named Milan as the frontrunners for Emerson but they say that the Serie A side could face a late challenge from Barca.

The report explains that the Catalan side may not be able to afford a permanent deal for Jaoa Cancelo and are now looking for alternatives.

The Spurs star is one of the options they have identified, with the publication adding that the Blaugrana could now press ahead with an offer for the Brazilian, who is valued at £21m by the Lilywhites.

Spurs Web Opinion

Tottenham would be quite happy for Barca to enter the picture and start a bidding war but I suspect that Emerson’s move to Milan is already quite a long way along and that the player is unlikely to make any U-turns now.

I also can’t imagine that Barcelona would want to re-sign Emerson after letting him go to Spurs in the first place.
