Emerson Royal ready to accept pay cut in order to force Tottenham Hotspur exit

Tottenham Hotspur full-back Emerson Royal has agreed to reduce his wages in order to secure a move to AC Milan.

According to Corriere dello Sport via SportWitness, Emerson Royal is keen on making a move away from Tottenham this summer and he is willing to take a pay cut in order to make things happen. The Brazilian full-back is interested in joining AC Milan and has agreed to lower his wages to suit their finances.

After failing to fire at Barcelona, Emerson joined Spurs in the summer of 2021. He was an integral part of their first team setup in the initial years. But, the arrival of Ange Postecoglou has seen the Brazilian go down the pecking order.

While he was involved in 24 matches last season, the majority of those appearances came because of an injury crisis at the back. Spurs do not really have any doubts about the player’s abilities but they feel he is not the right fit for the Australian manager’s system.

He still has two years left on his deal at Spurs but is keen on securing a move away as he looks to revive himself and work his way back into the Brazil national team. AC Milan are the ones who have been linked with the 25-year-old for some time now.

Emerson Royal ready to take a pay cut

The Italian outfit want to reinforce the right-back position ahead of next season. They feel Emerson Royal has the ideal profile for them and have been pushing for his services. The former Barcelona full-back is also keen on making the move to Milan and he is ready to accept lower wages to suit the Rossoneri’s budget.

Emerson is in love with the idea of playing for the Italian team and personal terms have already been agreed. The Italian giants now need to strike a deal with Spurs to get this transfer over the line. With two years left on his deal, Spurs demand €25 million for the transfer.

The Italian side are hoping to strike a deal for less than €20 million including bonuses. They feel the player’s desire to pay for them will help them out in their pursuit.
