After losing to Man United at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho has been given the opportunity to sign on-loan midfielder Giovani Lo Celso for €32million in January.
Real Betis CEO Jose Miguel Lopez Catalan, Lopez Catalan confirmed the news regarding the clauses and also sent a message to Tottenham regarding the Argentine midfielder.
“The purchase option can be exercised in the January market and they would have to pay 32 million,” he told ABC Sevilla.
“In June it is mandatory, if they get into the Champions League, and if not they will have an option. They will have to make the decision on whether to buy him or not.”
Lo Celso joined Spurs on loan from Betis early this season, with former manager Mauricio Pochettino was the one who pushed for the signing.
If they qualify for the Champions League again, Tottenham would have to make the transfer permanent for €40m but they can have the deal for only €32m in the new year.
But with Jose Mourinho in the helm, there are now doubts over whether Lo Celso will even get the game time before making a permanent switch as the 23-year-old has played just two minutes under Mourinho so far.
Despite suffering from injury, Lo Celso showed enough in Pochettino’s final games in charge to force his way into Mourinho’s team who failed to beat Manchester United who were inspired by Marcus Rashford performance.
