‘Pivotal for Spurs’ – Conte wants the struggling defender to stay in the team

    According to several Brazilian media reports, Emerson Royal will not leave Spurs this summer.

    A daily sports newspaper in Brazil, Lance, claims that the player will definitely stay at Tottenham, as he is considered an undisputed figure in the team.

    After holding a dialogue with Dr. Fabiano de Abreu, who is a representative of Emerson’s interests, it became clear that Antonio Conte is counting on the right-back for next season.

    “Emerson does not leave Tottenham. In fact, Antonio Conte said that even if it was for 40 million euros, the loan would not come out since he has the player as number one in his position. Royal is happy in the team and his football tends to improve.”

    Earlier it was reported that the Brazilian has indeed attracted the interest of Atletico Madrid, but the efforts of the Colchoneros were in vain, as Antonio Conte does not even think about selling the defender.
