There are more and more footballers who, before reaching adulthood, manage to take the decisive step in their career by joining a team with the most ambitious challenges. We recently witnessed such a case in Spain Lamine Yamal but something similar will happen in the Premier League too Luka Vuskovic, a 16-year-old central defender who chose Tottenham Hotspur after turning down PSG and Manchester City.
The opportunity to land at the Parc des Princes or the Etihad Stadium is an opportunity you don’t get every day, but Vuskovic has made his decision very clear and knowing that it will be much easier for him to join a team where the competition is much lower helps to call this decision a very intelligent one so as not to slow down his progress .
And in the PSG squad we find central defenders of this caliber Marquinhos, Milan Screener or Presnel Kimpembe three men with celebrated careers in Europe who will prevent Vuskovic from progressing in the way the Croatian demands.
We are observing this on the English side Rúben Dias, John Stones, Nathan Aké, Manuel Akanji and Josko Gvardiol who shares nationality with the jewel of 16 years It would be virtually impossible for Luka Vuskovic to find a place in Pep Guardiola’s plans, either in the short or long term. Therefore, the footballer decided to give his final “yes” to Spurs, although not with the prospect of becoming part of the squad led by Ange Postecoglou soon, but at the end of the current season.
People in London know that Vuskovic’s youth and lack of experience could play tricks in a European colossus Tottenham prefers to be careful with this pearl of the future, who already knows Luka Modric, Josko Gvardiol, Mateo Kovacic and Marcelo Brozovic very well the heavyweights of the Croatian national team, led by Sweet Dalic who wants to summon Vuskovic for it Euro 2024. Of course we will see how he copes with the expectations placed on him.
