Tottenham Hotspur could dip into the January transfer window for reinforcements now that it is finally open, perhaps giving Jose Mourinho the chance to put his mark on the side.
Back in the summer, Spurs made an effort to purchase Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon, although their bid was turned down by the Portuguese club.
The Sporting club president revealed that Tottenham’s offer was not desirable due to the add-ons included in the deal (Standard).
Fernandes revealed recently that Spurs was the only club he agreed to talk to and they made the biggest effort to sign him last summer (Record).
However, Mourinho recently stated that Fernandes was now out of Tottenham’s reach, thus ending any January pursuit of the player (Daily Mail).
Fernandes was asked this week whether working under Mourinho was a New Years wish of his, to which he replied (O Jogo): “(laughs) The desire for 2020 is to continue to be happy to do what I like best, which is to play, to be able to do it where I feel well, where I feel at home and, especially, where my family is doing well.”
He was also asked whether the Premier League was still a dream of his: “Until they are fulfilled, dreams always remain.”
