What Andrea Pirlo said after wining first trophy at Juventus


Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has finally ruled out any possibility of bringing Real Madrid centre-back, Eder Militao to Spurs this January transfer window.

Mourinho doesn’t think Militao is the answer to his quest to sign a new centre-back, according to transfer expert Duncan Castles.

Militao, 23, has been linked with a move to Tottenham after starting just one La Liga match so far this season for Zinedine Zidane’s side.

The Brazilian joined Madrid for £27million from Porto but hasn’t been able to break into Zidane’s first team ahead of Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane.

“My understanding is that, although Eder Militao is available, again a product of the COVID-19 situation where Real Madrid would like to offload a player on high salary who has barely been used this season, while they would be ready to offload him, they value the player at €50million, are looking, ideally to sell, but more realistically a loan with an option to buy,” Castles said on the Transfer Window podcast.

“Mourinho, I understand, doesn’t feel that Militao fits the profile of a player that Tottenham need, i.e. he does not see him as the player who would come in and overhaul the defence, be a leader in the defence, and take the team onto a different level.

“So then, if that deal were to be done by the club, I think it would be very much a compromise rather than the ideal scenario for Tottenham.

“Therefore I think you can regard this as pretty unlikely to happen in this [transfer] window,” he added.
