Jose Mourinho Has Made Contact With Marouane Fellaini Over A Transfer To Tottenham In January
Jose Mourinho has been in contact with Marouane Fellaini over a shock transfer to Tottenham in January.
Mourinho made a sensational return to the Premier League last month after Spurs appointed him and the 53-year-old has won four of his first five matches in charge.
His sole defeat came to the hands of Manchester United and it appears the Portuguese manager is set to move for one of his former players in the shape of Fellaini.
Les Sports claim Mourinho has got in touch with Fellaini over a move to Spurs with the 32-year-old his main priority transfer target in January.

The Belgium midfielder left Old Trafford for Shandon Luneng in January 2019 after five-and-a-half years in Manchester.
He has performed heroically in China, weighing in with 12 goals and five assists with Mourinho hopeful of bringing him back to England when the transfer window reopens.
Fellaini's contracted with the Chinese Super League outfit until December 2021 with an option of an additional year.
But the six-foot-four player will not be in action for his team in the league for three months, so he has time to consider his options.
Mourinho currently has the likes of Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko at his disposal with Giovani Lo Celso and Christian Eriksen's future at the club uncertain.
The ex-Real Madrid boss has identified his midfield as an area to strengthen ahead of the January transfer window.
