Vela’s mate Dos Santos signs for Spurs
It’s now official. Giovanni Dos Santos the Mexican starlet has admitted that he is leaving Barcelona for Ramos’s Spurs.
Interviewed on Wednesday night in San Diego, California where he witnessed the encounter in which Mexico lost 4-1 to Argentina, he said: "I will play next season at Tottenham,"
Tottenham waited until his operation on his left ankle had been carried out making sure that the player was moving well before putting pen to paper.
Barcelona will receive £4.7m pounds for the transfer.
It is believed that Dos Santos was positive about Spurs above other Premiership teams that were interested in his signature due to his relationship with Ramos.
It is ironic that Dos Santos’s close friend in the Mexican national team and also in Spain, Carlos vela, is also coming to London but he will of course ply his trade with Arsenal!
