Seen a few stories claiming and a few ITK boffins in forums claiming Joao Moutinho is going to fly into London this week to hold talks with Tottenham.
Joao Moutinho has indicated he would be happy to work with his old boss AVB and a move could be possible. Moutinho would cost Spurs around £20m and that would surely indicate that Modric would be off not long after for around£30m.
Moutinho (25) impressed at the Euro’s as he helped Portugal reach the semi final’s where they lost on penalties to eventual winners Spain. Moutinho worked under AVB at Porto 2 seasons ago and has a good relationship with his old boss. Manchester United are said to be the other party interested in securing the services of the Portuguese international.
ITK stories aren’t always credible, it could just be a case of he’s flying to England to meet Manchester United, unless I saw him waving his plane ticket in his hand which said London Gatwick then you can only take it with a pinch of salt. No doubt we are looking for a Modric replacement and the 2 favourites are Joao Moutinho and Oscar from Brazil.
I guess we will find out in a few days whether there was any truth in it.Follow @TrfficTottenham
