Earlier this week, we carried a report from Defensa Central which explained Tottenham Hotspur are keen on signing Real Madrid’s Éder Militão.

The centre-back has been restricted to only 224 minutes of action this season and that includes two starts from three appearances in all competitions.

All of his three appearances came in October and a lack of minutes has seen reports linking the 22-year-old with a move away from Los Blancos.

Sport explains Zinedine Zidane is not in favour of allowing players to leave midway through the season, but he will have to ‘accept the departures’ of Luka Jović, Militão and Álvaro Odriozola.

Tottenham’s interest in the FC Porto man is mentioned in today’s edition.

It’s claimed José Mourinho ‘wants’ the Brazilian at his club and the former Chelsea manager is ‘pressing’ Spurs to sign the defender on loan until the end of this season.

The newspaper adds Militão ‘welcomes’ the option of joining the Premier League side, if he’s not going to have minutes at Real Madrid.

Whether Tottenham can fulfil their manager’s wish by signing the South American remains to seen.
