Rumours have been flying around over the idea that Jose Mourinho wants a new defender at Tottenham Hotspur. Eder Militao is the name being linked with a potential move to London.
Spurs scouts have been looking at him since Porto, and have been keeping tabs on him at Madrid as well. Real Madrid don’t want to change the team and want to look at the situation of the squad before making a decision.
Militao has found regular playing time hard to come by, with the youngster only getting a chance when either one of Raphael Varane or Sergio Ramos is injured. And even in those chances, he has looked out of his depth, mainly due to infrequent minutes on the pitch for Los Blancos.
Having only joined Madrid in the summer of 2019, and being only 22 years old, it is only natural that the 13-time Champions League winners see him as part of the bigger picture at the club.
Moving to Italy for a suitable transfer target for the Special One, and we arrive at one of the names that has been linked with Spurs heavily in the past as well, and that is of Inter Milan centre-back Milan Skriniar.
Last summer, he wasn’t playing and was rumoured to be on the edge with Conte. This season has seen a complete turnaround in the player’s fortunes at the San Siro.
A bid to lure Milan Skriniar to London is going to be very difficult right now because Inter want €60 mill for the starter. His situation at Inter is very different now because he is regularly featuring in Antonio Conte’s starting XI.
