Bergvall chooses Spurs over Barca: 3 reasons why

Bergvall chooses Spurs over Barca: 3 reasons why

It has been reported by multiple sources that Lucas Bergvall will join Tottenham, not Barcelona. The Catalans were working on the transfer for several weeks but a late hijack from Spurs means that he'll go to La Liga.

Fabrizio Romano confirmed the move with a trademark 'here we go'.

"[Fellow Swede] Dejan Kulusevski also had a role in speaking to Lucas Bergvall, telling him about Spurs and working under Ange Postecoglou," Romano added about the reasons behind the Djurgardens youngster picking Tottenham over Blaugrana.

"Bergvall communicated his decision to Barça after saying ‘yes’ to Spurs."

Another reason is the midfielder's family. They decided that it would be best for Bergvall to live in the UK than in Spain and he would get more opportunities at Tottenham, journalist Matteo Moretto reports.

It is also said that Spurs offered more money to the 18-year-old but it wasn't an important factor in his decision to move to the Premier League side.
