Belgian outlet Les Sports+ has claimed that Jose Mourinho made contact with Marouane Fellaini over a potential return to the Premier League in January wndow with a move to Tottenham.
The midfielder left Manchester United just over a month after José was relieved from his duties at Old Trafford. The Portuguese coach returned to management last month when Tottenham Hotspur appointed him as Mauricio Pochettino’s successor.
DH first reported on Sunday that Mourinho contacted Fellaini last week to see if he would be willing to return to the Premier League.
The Shandong Luneng star turned 32 years of age last month, yet he’s taken good care of his body and has maintained a good level of performances.
Another report from DH now claims this could be the reason why the Spurs manager got in touch with Fellaini to see if can be tempted to join him at Tottenham.
The report claims Spurs have made Fellaini their ‘first priority’ in January, given they have little back-up to Harry Kane.
