Tottenham are ‘interested’ in Real Madrid defender Eder Militao, with the Spanish club keen to loan him out.
The Brazilian has found himself out of favour at the Bernabeu this season, managing just three appearances and 224 minutes of football in total.
Indeed, he hasn’t featured for Zinedine Zidane’s side since a 4-1 win over Huesca at the end of October and has spent the last nine league games sat on the bench.
He’s subsequently been linked with a move away from the club, and Tottenham have been named as an interested party in the past.
SportBILD back that up today and say that Bayern Munich are eyeing up the 23-year-old should they lose David Alaba and Jerome Boateng in the summer.
They’re eyeing the defender as an alternative to RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, who is a top candidate for the club but too expensive at €45m.
Thus they have turned to Militao, and according to their information, Real Madrid would like to loan him out.
However, they face competition from Spurs, with it stated that they are ‘also interested’ in a potential deal for the centre back.
The newspaper presents this all very much as something for the summer, at least in Bayern’s case, and there’s no mention of contacts between the clubs or anything of that nature.
However, with Toby Alderweireld potentially returning to the Netherlands or Belgium, perhaps Militao is one to keep an eye on should Tottenham need to reinforce.
