Barcelona immediately released Emerson Royal even though it had not been even a month to join. Emerson is now at Tottenham Hotspur.
Barcelona has actually bought Emerson since 2019, but with a co-ownership system with Real Betis. Emerson then played for Betis for two seasons.
Emerson, who plays at right-back, has performed well with five goals in 79 matches in all competitions. Smitten by Emerson’s fine performance, Barcelona made him permanent this summer.
Unfortunately, Barcelona experienced a financial crisis with a total debt of more than 1 billion euros. As a result, they have to restructure the debt as well as balance the balance sheet.
Cleaning was also carried out, including releasing Lionel Messi in order to loosen the salary bill. Emerson lantsa is on the selling list because Barcelona already have Sergino Dest and Sergi Roberto at the right-back post.
At the end of the transfer market, Tuesday (31/8/2021) night WIB, Emerson was officially released by Barcelona to Tottenham with a tag of 30 million euros, or around Rp. 504 billion.
Emerson, who has played two games this season with Barcelona, has a five-year contract with Tottenham and becomes the North London club’s fifth purchase.
Previously, Tottenham had recruited Pierlugi Gollini, Cristian Romero, Bryan Gil, and Pape Matar Sarr. Sarr was loaned to his home club Metz this season.
Emerson Royal is projected to compete with Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty at right back. Serge Aurier will most likely be released.
Tottenham Hotspur have always won in their first three Premier League matches and are now at the top of the standings.
