Marouane Fellaini won’t be moving to Tottenham in January
Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has turned down the chance to join Tottenham in January.
The 32-year-old joined Shandong Luneng from United and has impressed in his first season. The lanky Belgian has seven goals and four assists from 22 games but has been linked with Spurs (h/t Evening Standard).
Fellaini has a deal for another two years with the Chinese club and told Eleven Sports that he is in contact with Jose Mourinho (h/t Evening Standard):
“Jose is special for me.
“We text each other, we call each other from time to time.”
However, the Belgian claimed he was happy at Luneng and wished Mourinho the best:
“He’s taken over at Spurs and he’s doing well. I wish him all the best, but I am good where I am now.”
Spurs don’t have a lot of money to spend
Signing a few players in the winter window could give us the extra push we need to get into the top four.
However, the Evening Standard claims that there will be limited funds for the boss to spend when the window opens.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Bruno Fernandes will not be coming to Spurs in January, either (h/t Evening Standard).
