Tottenham see €65m bid rejected for Portuguese star – club demands €70m

Spurs transfer news: Third bid for Fernandes rejected by Sporting

The Daily Mail claims that a third bid from Tottenham for Bruno Fernandes has been rejected by Sporting Lisbon.

The Portugal outfit want €70m for the 24-year-old, and Spurs’ third bid was €65m, which included €10m add-ons (h/t Daily Mail).

The report claims that the previous bids for Fernandes were €45m and €60m, which were both rejected by Sporting.

Fernandes scored plenty of goals last season and could be a great fit for the club in the summer.

Tottenham haven’t signed any players after the capture of Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke early on in the window.

Fernandes wants to leave the club

The report claims that Fernandes has told Sporting he wants to leave the club, with England his preferred destination.

Manchester United are also keeping an eye on the Portugal international and it should be an interesting couple of days as the transfer window closes.

Tottenham are unwilling to pay Sporting the €70m they demand, even if they include bonuses in the deal (h/t Daily Mail). Spurs have until Thursday to finalise all their transfers but they can sell players to foreign clubs until the end of the month.

Tottenham are still a little light in a couple of positions, such as the right-back spot, but we also need an attacking midfielder to join the ranks.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998.

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.

“No one leaving in January” – Premier League manager confirms Tottenham-linked star isn’t leaving

Brendan Rodgers claims Tottenham-linked James Maddison won’t leave in January

James Maddison has been excellent for Leicester City this season. The England midfielder has helped the Foxes to second in the Premier League and has also featured for the national team.

The 23-year-old has five goals and three assists for Leicester this season and has been linked with Tottenham (h/t Football.london).

Maddison joined Leicester from Norwich City around 18 months ago, and his progress has been incredible.

However, Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers believes that none of his players will leave the club next month (h/t Football.london):

“If you’re doing well, there will always be speculation.

“The boys understand that. Maddison has started the season very well, he’s been very productive. He’s a bright young player and he’s got a bright future.

“There’ll be no-one leaving in January. Categorically.”

Tottenham’s midfield problems

Maddison could work wonders for this Spurs team as we lack goals from the midfield. Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer while Giovani Lo Celso hasn’t played much under Jose Mourinho.

Eriksen has struggled for consistency this season while Lo Celso hasn’t been able to cement a place under the new boss.

Mourinho has to solve this issue soon as almost half the season is already done.

Danny Rose can’t guarantee his future at Tottenham despite Jose Mourinho’s appointment

Danny Rose has claimed that he hasn’t spoken with Jose Mourinho since the Portuguese took over at Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino was replaced by the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager after a poor run of results.

Mourinho has turned things around for us with just two losses since taking over, however, Rose spoke about his contract situation too.

The English left-back had earlier claimed he would leave when his contract is done and suggested he would do the same (h/t Sun):

“I’ve never had a conversation with him and I don’t see why I need to.

“As I said before, I’m here for the next 18 months so I don’t see why I need to have a conversation with the manager.”

Rose added that he wants to do well with Spurs and is aiming to finish in the top four.

Rose pleased with Mourinho at club

The Englishman added that he had the pleasure of working under Pochettino, and couldn’t believe that Mourinho was our manager now:

“I never thought I would be managed by Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.

“That’s credit to the club, how well they’ve progressed throughout the years and to get someone like Jose has been obviously brilliant.”

The left-back added that he expected Mourinho to aim for the top-four and the FA Cup too, given that he is a winner.

Rose has had his struggles at the club and it will be interesting to see if he is leaving in 18 months.

Ben Davies can do a good job as the left-back and is the replacement for Rose in the current team.

Tottenham keen on 28-year-old star struggling at Real Madrid

Tottenham interested in Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez

Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid attacker James Rodriguez, according to El Chiringuito (h/t Calciomercato).

The Colombian spent two seasons on loan at Bayer Munich before returning to the Spanish capital.

Rodriguez was unable to cement a place at the Bundesliga giants and has struggled for minutes at Real too. The 28-year-old has only made four starts for the Madrid giants and is currently out with an injury.

The report claims that Napoli are also interested in the attacker and could make a move in the January window.

The Serie A giants were linked with him in January but could not meet Real’s valuation of the player (h/t Calciomercato).

A risky signing for Spurs?

The Colombian has struggled for form ever since he joined Los Galacticos after the 2014 World Cup.

Rodriguez was one of the stars in that competition, but things just haven’t gone his way since.

The attacking-midfielder is 28 already and adjusting to the Premier League isn’t a surety either. Spurs could do with more attacking options in the winter window, but a move for Rodriguez seems to be risky.

Christian Eriksen is a free agent in the summer and put in another average display at Munich.
