According to Bleacher Report’s Dean Jones, Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho wishes to reunite with Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot thissummer
“I think he (Mourinho) wants a full back and centre back, the type of names are Meunier and I was also told Dalot from United,” the BR football expert stated during an AMA (ask me anything) session.
“Diop from West Ham and Upamecano from Leipzig have also been scouted. Don’t forget, Spurs are not in a great financial position right now so fans shouldn’t get too excited about big names arriving.”
The Portuguese is seeking to sign a full-back when the transfer window opens, and landing the Red Devils man might be an excellentmove
The 21- year-old can play at both right-back and left-back, and he can likewise play on both wings, however injuries and stiff competition for playing opportunities at Old Trafford have actually restricted him to simply 10 appearances throughout all competitions this term.
The Sun claims Man Utd want to listen to deals for Dalot as he is now surplus to requirements following the introduction of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, which around ₤35 million would suffice to land him.
The paper states Jose stays a huge fan of his skill and might even be lured to make a move to bring him to North London, and it would not be unexpected if Spurs pursue him at the end of thecampaign
Mourinho brought the Portugal youth international to the Theatre of Dreams from Porto for ₤19 million in the summer of 2018, and Tottenham might do with a versatile full-back that can offer quality cover and competition in their squad moving forward.
