Reportedly, Jose Mourinho is contemplating a reunion at Tottenham with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos.
After 15 years at the Bernabeu, Ramos, 34, is thought to be contemplating a new challenge, with his current contract expiring in the summer.
In January, the Spanish defender, who worked for three seasons with Mourinho in Madrid between 2010 and 2013, will be able to speak to overseas clubs as things stand.
And Mourinho is tracking the situation, according to the Evening Standard, as the manager of Spurs seeks more historical experience.
The study says that Tottenham would like to sign someone in Thiago Silva’s mold. Since joining Chelsea on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain, the 36-year-old has proven to be a revelation.
Similarly, next summer, Ramos will be available for free unless Madrid will agree on a contract extension or approve an offer next month.
Speaking about Ramos at a recent press conference, Zinedine Zidane, the Los Blancos manager, remained coy about the defender’s future.
“He looks good because he’s convinced he’s going to continue and that’s the most important thing,” Zidane said.
“For several years, I’ve seen him play football and he’s someone who takes great care of himself. If you want to go on and take care of yourself, you’re very likely to go on for a long time and I’m not surprised by what he’s doing.”
