Fans of Tottenham Hotspur have recently reacted to a transfer link which has been drawn between Spurs and Real Madrid defender Eder Militao.

According to a recent report by AS, Jose Mourinho was interested in signing the centre-back during the previous transfer window and the Portuguese manager has ‘not forgotten him’.

Supposedly, the club signed Joe Rodon in the last transfer window with the ‘mission‘ to improve Spurs’ distribution in defence, however, he does not provide ‘guarantees‘ of that.

Furthermore, Davinson Sanchez does not ‘inspire the greatest of confidence‘ for Mourinho.

Real Madrid secured the services of the 22-year-old Brazilian during the summer of 2019 from FC Porto, having paid a whopping £45m for him (per Transfermarkt).

The report regarding the defender was shared to Spurs fans on Twitter by Daily Hotspur and it had lots of them talking.

So far this season, the 22-year-old defender has made just two La Liga appearances for Los Blancos, in which he averaged 2.0 tackles and 2.0 interceptions per game (per WhoScored).

His average rating over the two games, though, was a weak 6.69/10, making him only the 13th-best performer for Real Madrid in the league so far this term.
