Jose Mourinho responds (very briefly) to transfer talk of move for £21m-rated striker
By Rob S -

Jose Mourinho was quizzed about Tottenham’s quest to sign a new striker during Friday’s pre-Southampton press conference.

The name of 28-year-old Brazilian Willian Jose was put to the boss, who wasn’t keen to say anything much.

But Mourinho told the media, as quoted by football.london: “He is a Real Sociedad player. I don’t comment on players from other clubs.

“I can only speak about my players, it is a question of respect to the coaches and to the clubs where the players belong.”

Mourinho certainly did not rubbish the idea that the Sociedad forward was a wanted man in N17. He is likely just as desperate as us fans to see a new frontman arrive before next Friday’s transfer deadline.

And if Friday’s report by The Guardian is anything to go by, that recruitment process is likely to be a testing one.

The Guardian claimed that Jose was Mourinho’s main target but that Spurs are Sociedad were £11m apart in their valuations – with the La Liga club wanting £21m following a £10m bid for the player, who has a release clause in the region of £58.8m in his current contract.

  1. Willian Jose = barrel scraping time – Levy’s real expertise.

  2. Is Gascoigne gonna have a crac says:

    10 mill….he thinks he’s gonna get anyone worthwhile for 10 mill. F*#k off already baldy. This guy shouldn’t even be on the radar, 28 years old…… dodgey record….it’s pitiful.

  3. s1collin says:

    Meanwhile Haaland scores 5 goals in his first 2 matches for Dortmund. He cost just 20M Euros. Why didn’t we go for him?

  4. James McKevitt says:

    There is a chairmans valuation and a market value. He’d value Messi at 15 million if buying and 500 million if selling.

  5. Willie! says:

    16M is about right. Pay up, baldy.
