Jose Mourinho may return to his former club Manchester United this summer in a bid to strengthen his attacking ranks at Spurs. Reports are suggesting the Portuguese boss is weighing up a move for Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean has flopped since moving to Old Trafford from Arsenal in January 2018.
Inter Milan have taken the 31-year-old on loan this season but they are not expected to make the move permanent.
Sanchez’s enormous wages are off-putting for many suitors and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is faced with a big dilemma when the forward returns to United.
However, Mourinho could offer his successor a help-in-hand by taking Sanchez to north London.
According to 90min, Sanchez is one of a handful of players Tottenham are monitoring ahead of the summer window.
It is unclear if United will let the star join a Premier League rival but in order to boost their own budget it could be a possibility.
Mourinho did not have the best relationship with Sanchez when the pair worked together at United.
At the start of this season Mourinho explained the issues which he felt were difficult to overcome.
“Sanchez… I felt him [to be] not a happy man,” Mourinho told The Telegraph.

“And I think in every job you have when you are not happy it is not so easy to perform at every level. And maybe I am wrong.
“Maybe it was me who was not capable to get into him and to get the best out of him.
“As a manager sometimes you have the capacity to get the best out of the players and other times you are not successful in that approach.
“But the reality is that I always felt [of Sanchez], ‘a sad man’.
“So probably in Italy he will recover this. I hope he can. I always wish well to every player.”
Spurs making a move for Sanchez seems unlikely given those comments by Mourinho.
However, bigger surprises have happened and there may not be too much money available to spend given the coronavirus pandemic.
