Jose Mourinho in contact with Florentino Perez to discuss Eder Militao transfer

According to ElDesmarque (h/t Express), Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is keen on adding Real Madrid’s Brazilian defender Eder Militao to the Spurs squad in the summer.

The Portuguese tactician views the 22-year-old as a replacement for Belgian veteran Jan Vertonghen who is out of contract in the summer. Militao has struggled to make an impact since his move to Madrid last summer and has made just 13 appearances all season.

According to the report, Mourinho has already been in contact with Florentino Perez regarding a potential move for the player.

Eder Militao has struggled to impress at Real Madrid

Militao is behind Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane in the Madrid pecking order. He has been unable to displace the duo, predominantly being asked to operate at right-back whenever Daniel Carvajal has been unavailable.

The player made a £45million move to the Spanish giants after impressing for Porto in the Portuguese league. A versatile player, he is capable of playing anywhere along the back-line while also capable of slotting into defensive midfield.

Zinedine Zidane is keen on making a profit on the defender and have placed an asking price of £70million on his head. Mourinho, however, remains optimistic that the asking price can be lowered.

Madrid and Spurs have had a number of high profile transfers among them in recent years. Gareth Bale and Luka Modric moved to the Spanish Capital from London while Van der Vaart came the other way.

Militao, to his credit, has remained professional in spite of his limited chances and is keen to leave an impact at the Bernabeu. He had a night to forget at the weekend as he was constantly terrorized by Nabil Fekir, as Real Betis beat Madrid 2-1.

Vertonghen has also reiterated his happiness at being in London. He has, however, refused to comment on his contract situation.
