Tottenham Hotspur made enquiries about Eder Militao late in the January transfer window.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Jose Mourinho wanted to do a bit of winter business with his former club.
With Militao not faring too well at the Spanish capital, he was linked with plenty of English outfits over the past month. Liverpool came calling and later, Tottenham. All of Spurs’ advances were shot down eventually due to a bit of injury crisis at the Bernabeu.
Romano said, “Yes, and we mentioned about Militao many times in the past few weeks, and the Tottenham possibility, and what we can say is that Tottenham were really interested in Militao.
“They were asking for him on a loan with a buy option and no obligation to buy, only a buy option in the last week of transfers. “But Madrid said always no, only because they have a no centre-backs with a lot of injuries and the covid situation, so they were preferring to keep this player, and that’s why it was so complicated.”
Tottenham went through the season without signing any defenders and so did Real. Their real problem is also regarding their captain, Sergio Ramos who is hinting at leaving this summer.
