Jose Mourinho Man Utd favourite snubs reunion at Tottenham

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has ruled out a reunion with ex-Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho at Tottenham.

Belgian international Fellaini, who was brought to Old Trafford by David Moyes in 2013, worked with Mourinho at the club between May 2016 and December 2018, making 57 Premier League appearances under the Portuguese.

However, Fellaini saw his game time diminish following the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the helm, with the midfielder sold to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng in February.

The 32-year-old has two years – including the option of an extra year – on his contract and recent reports have linked him with a move back to England to join up with Mourinho.

However, speaking to Eleven Sports, Fellaini ruled out the possibility of such a move while confirming that the pair are still in contact.

“Jose is special for me. We text each other, we call each other from time to time,” he said.

“He’s taken over at Spurs and he’s doing well. I wish him all the best. But I am good where I am now.”

In other Tottenham news, Mourinho has reportedly put a new striker top of his wish list for the January transfer window and is close to securing a deal.


It is claimed that Mourinho wants to keep Harry Kane fresh for the latter part of the season as Spurs look to fight for a place in the top four of the Premier League, having been 14th when Mauricio Pochettino left.

Reports in Turkey claim that Fenerbahce targetman Vedat Muriqi is on Tottenham’s radar, with scouts having watched the Turkey international’s progress closely over the past few months.

It is also said that Spurs are now ready to meet the £18m price tag Fenerbahce have placed on Muriqi’s head.
