The 23-year-old Colombia international moved from Ajax in August 2017 for a fee reported to be £42million and has gone on to become a pillar at the heart of Spurs’ first half on the field of play.
The formal Ajax man has made 32 appearances in all competitions for Tottenham this season as they have battled their way out in the Premier League – where they are currently eighth on the league – while they were knocked out in the last-16 of the Champions League, in a disappointing season.
Two positions are said to be ‘unforgettable’ Mourinho currently with a central defender and striker his priorities for the upcoming transfer window. And, in an effort to solve his issues in those areas, ‘he looks at Real Madrid’ where he has an interest in both Militao and striker Luka Jovic.
The report adds that Mourinho will have an ‘easier time’ convincing Jovic to do a deal with the Serbia international failing to hit the ground running since his move from Eintracht Frankfurt last year.
That’s because Militao, who has used sparingly this season under Zinedine Zidane, believes next season will be his big chance to nail down a regular starting berth at the Bernabeu. But that doesn’t look like putting Mourinho off.
Don Balon says there is interest from Real Madrid in Tottenham’s Sanchez and that Mourinho ‘wants to take advantage of this’ as he looks to do a deal for Militao.
