Spurs considering Manchester United flop this summer


Tottenham's summer hasn't particularly got off to the greatest of starts.

Although Spurs have taken four points from their opening two games following the resumption of the league, Daniel Levy and Jose Mourinho are already beginning to clash.

Mourinho wanted to sign Thomas Meunier from PSG before he moved to Borussia Dortmund but Levy went against that and denied the transfer.

It was the first sign of a disagreement between the pair after collaborating to sign Steven Bergwijn in January.

Who Spurs sign this time around remains to be seen, but clearly they need to improve.

One area the Lilywhites desperately need to improve in is defensively. 

Mourinho has conceded 42 goals since arriving as Spurs boss while Jan Vertonghen - out of contract - Serge Aurier and Kyle Walker-Peters could all leave.

They've already been linked with the likes of Robin Koch and Sevilla's Diego Carlos but fresh reports state they're in the market for an attacker.


90min drew up a list of options for Spurs, suggesting that one player they could go after is Alexis Sanchez.

A move is less likely, but Manchester United have a preference to offload the Chilean.

Sanchez is on a considerable £350,000-a-week at Old Trafford and has been playing on loan at Inter Milan this season.


Though, he is due to return to England at the end of the season and could move to Spurs as a result. 

Spurs have also enquired about Gareth Bale according to 90min.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Given Alexis' history in England, this would be quite the move.

Sanchez, of course, played for Arsenal for a number of seasons and racked up a mighty tally of 80 goals and 45 assists in 166 outings.

At the Emirates Stadium, the Chile international was one of the most frightening players in the Premier League, being described as a "great player" by former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. 

Though, his career has taken a turn for the worst.

After moving to Manchester, he has scored only five times in 45 matches. The very fact he was sent to Serie A on loan is indicative of his status at Old Trafford.

He has flopped considerably after leaving Arsenal, scoring just once for Inter.

Sanchez is a shadow of the player he became at the Gunners and if Levy swoops for the 31-year-old, questions would surely have to be raised.

Add his wages into the question, and there are surely better options around. After all, with Heung-min Son and Bergwijn in the squad, there is no need for him.
