The Athletic have just released a report saying that Swedish teenage sensation Lucas Bergvall has chosen Tottenham Hotspur over Barcelona as his summer destination.

The midfielder was strongly linked to Barcelona, and had even chosen the Catalans for a summer transfer despite better offers from some clubs. His club, Djurgardens had also accepted their offer, and the move as as close as done.

This is where Tottenham Hotspur came in, offering him higher wages, and even a spot in the first-team immediately. Reports are, that Bergvall’s compatriot, Dejan Kulusevski, had even played a part in convincing him to move to London.

And while Barcelona’s offer, worth €7 million, plus add-ons, had fallen short to Tottenham’s ±€10 million, plus add ons, the Catalans were convinced that Bergvall would move to La Liga.

Barcelona were not ready to enter a bidding war with any team for Bergvall, and the Swede had already visited the club, and had lunch with Deco before finalising the transfer.

Well, Barcelona fans, get ready to lock and load your Johann Cruyff quotes.
