According to a report from Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to sell Paulo Gazzaniga during the summer transfer window.

Gazzaniga was relegated to third choice after the arrival of Joe Hart last summer and the Argentine has not played a single minute for the club this season.

He was then loaned out to Elche during last month’s transfer window and is yet to make an impact at the La Liga club, serving as an unused substitute in their last three league games.

Football Insider report that Spurs will have discussions with Gazzaniga about his future when he returns from his loan spell in Spain. The talks are likely to end with the goalkeeper being told that he is free to find a new club.

The report reveals that, since the 29-year-old will be into the final year of his Tottenham contract at the end of the season, the club have decided to move him on.

It is asserted that Jose Mourinho is happy for the former Southampton man to leave as he does not trust him.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do feel a little sorry for Gazzaniga as he has been a reliable pair of hands for the most part and proved an able deputy for Lloris when called upon. However, it is evident that Mourinho and his coaching staff do not seem to rate the Argentine very highly.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Mourinho has never trusted anyone before, but himself. Every where he goes, he creates crisis and divisions before he can manage.

    His style is not to improve teams and individuals. He must have cluster of quality and expensive players to choose from……his favourites, and he will fortify them to play his way through out. Along the line, he will pick up one or two trophies and people will hail him as a top manager.

    But people however, forget how destructive and expensive his projects usually are. That’s why he’s hardly spent more than three years in any given project. By the time he has left, he’s left a broken team, destroyed a few individual careers, he moves on, leaving the club to pick up the pieces.

    Unfortunately, for him this time around at Spurs, the money is not available to provide him with surplus, quality and expensive players he can experiment on and discard. This is the reason why he is struggling badly and appear despondent.
