Tottenham midfield target dismisses Monaco move rumours

Published 1 Comments

Tottenham and Monaco target Joao Moutinho says he is happy to stay with Porto despite rumours linking him with a move away from the club.

Moutinho was instrumental in helping Porto claim the Portuguese league title and also helped his side reach the knockout stages of the Champions League this term - and he says he's happy to stay put this summer.

"Right now, nothing will make me change clubs. I am extremely happy here and the most important thing is happiness and winning titles," Moutinho told a press conference.

However he added: "My future is up to FC Porto. No player is immune to leaving. But if something does come up, it has to be something good for both parties."

The Portuguese midfielder has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane since last summer, while more recently newly-promoted Ligue 1 side Monaco are said to be interested in securing his services.

Tottenham looked to have a deal in place for Mourinho during last summer's transfer window - but failed to get it done before time ran out. the north London club have been linked with making a move for him once more in the summer window.

However now Monaco appears to be a likley destination for the 26-year-old. Sky Italia report that both Moutinho and Porto team-mate James Rodriguez have agreed a £59 million joint-deal to make the move to the Ligue 1 side, who backed by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev.
