Lamela set for Spain next month!

Posted on December 11, 2013 by Guest Writer

One of today’s rumours centres around Erik Lamela, apparently Atletico Madrid are keen to take him on loan for the rest of the season and AVB is apparently prepared to authorise such a move as he believes that it might help in the future, the suggestion is that the player has had a nightmare start to his time at Tottenham following his expensive move! Correct me if I am wrong but wasn’t it AVB who just a few days ago stated that Lamela simply needed time to settle and acclimatise to London life before the Tottenham fans would see the best of him?

We have regularly been informed that Lamela needed to learn English to help his integration into the group and obviously that is something that has already been addressed. In order to help him settle his family have now joined him in London and they live in a home probably supplied by the club.

Rumours of a loan begin to surface but Lamela is going nowhere.

So should he now move to Spain, where they speak the same language as him, just how would that help any integration into the English way of  life, learning the language and growing into the Tottenham group? Lamela is a young player who in his extremely short career has had a short spell in Italy having being snapped up by Roma for big money from Argentina and then a little over a year later has made the move to Tottenham for an an even bigger fee. Not even 22 yrs of age until March the youngster has already crammed plenty into his short career and a bit of stability is what is now needed rather than yet another upheaval.

Learning the language, settling down and a bit of patience is crucial if Tottenham wish to see the best from a special talent, a move to Spain or any other country would be unproductive and ludicrous at this time.

As we approach the winter transfer window other transfer news includes the potential signing of the Brazilian Gustavo for £24m from the Bundesliga, bearing in mind that he is a defensive midfield player not unlike Sandro and Capoue you can probably guess how much truth there might be to this one.
