Mourinho confirms Spurs are not back in for Fernandes

with No Comments

Tottenham will not be making a renewed effort to sign Sporting Lisbon star Bruno Fernandes in January, Jose Mourinho has confirmed.

Spurs held talks with the Portuguese club in the summer as they were lining up other attacking options in case of the departure of Christian Eriksen.

Paulo Dybala was another player the club pursued but Eriksen stayed – and the Denmark playmaker’s future remains in doubt ahead of the winter window, with his contract expiring next summer.


But Mourinho has suggested his club cannot afford Fernandes, who recently signed a new four-year deal at Sporting.

“I would definitely say no because Bruno is a player of a level and value that is not for us,” he said.
