The competition for Lucas Bergvall may ultimately be decided by his birthday: Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur in tight race.

Introduction to this article:
The article discusses the pursuit of 17-year-old Swedish wonderkid Lucas Bergvall by Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur, and how the timing of Bergvall’s 18th birthday could potentially affect the outcome of the transfer.

Barcelona’s Pursuit

Barcelona have been actively pursuing Lucas Bergvall for several months, hoping to sign him despite facing competition from other clubs. Their plan involves sharing his minutes between the first team and Barca Atletic initially, with the intention of fully integrating him into the first team in the future.

Competition from Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur has emerged as a competitor, offering more money, better conditions, and the promise of immediate minutes for Bergvall. Their willingness to make a deal happen sooner rather than later has posed a threat to Barcelona’s pursuit of the young talent.

The Impact of Bergvall’s Age

Bergvall is currently underage and cannot make a move until he turns 18, which is set to occur on the second of February. This limitation impacts both clubs’ ability to secure the transfer, potentially tipping the scales in favor of Barcelona, as the immediate playing time offered by Tottenham Hotspur may be less significant after Bergvall reaches the age of 18.

Decision in the Hands of Bergvall and His Family

Ultimately, the decision of where Bergvall will end up lies with the player and his family. After meeting with Barcelona officials and visiting the club’s facilities, they have returned to London to make their decision. Barcelona feels they have done all they can to convince Bergvall to join their ranks.

Possible Loophole for Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur may have a loophole to extend the transfer beyond the deadline by applying for an extension in England. This could potentially give them the opportunity to secure the transfer post-Bergvall’s 18th birthday, opening the door for a late move.
