Tottenham Hotspur had reportedly explored the option of signing a Manchester City star this summer transfer window
Jose Mourinho was on cloud nine after a resounding victory against his former club, Manchester United, at the Old Trafford. Tottenham Hotspur ran riot against the Red Devils as they scored six goals in the process which also goes down as Spurs’s biggest win over Manchester United.
The 2020/21 campaign might just be the one for the north London side to finally lift some silverware and under the guidance of Jose Mourinho, it seems like a possible event. The former Real Madrid manager has won a trophy at every club he has managed and fans believe that his tenure at Spurs will be no different.
The club also had made some world-class signings this summer. In the defense, Jose has recruited Sergio Reguilon and Matt Doherty for the flanks, however, his search for a centre-back continues. The former Inter Milan manager desperately wanted to sign Milan Skriniar who has struggled under the tactical set up of Antonio Conte.
However, the price tag for Skriniar was not working with Tottenham’s budget given the fact that they have made several signings this summer. Having said that, Jose Mourinho had considered signing John Stones of Manchester City this summer, according to reports.
The former Everton defender has fallen down the pecking order at the Etihad Stadium and is desperate for a move out of the club to revive his career. Jose was eager to work with the England international who was once a promising talent that faded away too soon.
However, the attempt to sign the Sky Blue defender did not go through for financial reasons. The Portuguese coach will have to make the most of his current squad that seems to be quite well balanced in terms of squad depth. The team also seems to be working as a unit that has permitted Jose Mourinho to use his tactical mindset at its full capability. Tottenham Hotspur could consider to battle it out for the Premier League title or at least finish top four this season.
