Former Romanian footballer believes Bayern never made an offer for Radu Dragusin

Tottenham Hotspur secured the signing of Radu Dragusin, in January, fending off serious competition from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in the process.

The player ultimately chose to join the North London club, signing a six-year contract after an agreement was reached with Genoa for a fee of €25 million, with an additional €5 million in add-ons.

While the move has been smooth for all parties involved, former Romanian footballer Marcel Raducanu criticised Dragusin’s decision to join Tottenham after departing Genoa.

Raducanu believes Dragusin did not have any offers from Bayern Munich

Speaking to Radio Romania Actualitati as reported by AS in Romania, Raducanu suggested that Dragusin rushed into joining Tottenham when he could have stayed at the Italian club to further develop his career.

Raducanu mentioned that Dragusin did not receive an actual offer from Bayern Munich, questioning the validity of the rumors surrounding Bayern’s interest.

He expressed his belief that Dragusin should have remained at Genoa to secure more playing time and potentially attract offers from top clubs naturally.

He said (quotes via AS):

“A lot of teams are waiting for the Euros. I don’t think they rush like Tottenham did with Dragusin. I’m glad he’s playing now and he did well in the last game, but you saw that it took him a few games too, where he was on the sidelines.

“He should have stayed at Genoa. It would have been better for him to play as a starter until the end of the season. Then offers come by naturally. I think he was a bit hasty. Let’s be honest! He didn’t have any offers. Bayern, if they want a player, they take him immediately. We’re not discussing it. Those were rumours, hearsay.

“I know for a fact he didn’t get an offer from Bayern. Or if he did, which I don’t think he did, he’s either arrogant or naive. How can you refuse Bayern? You can’t. It’s impossible, you can’t do that.”

Radu Dragusin is said to have rejected Bayern Munich for Tottenham

Although Dragusin has yet to earn his first Premier League start under Ange Postecoglou, the Romanian defender has already made four substitute appearances.

As opportunities arise, Spurs’ new acquisition will naturally settle into his new club over time.
