According to the report, interest in the Spurs defender could be dropped completely. Moreover, with the 17-year-old’s versatility as a winger and left-back, Mourinho would be delighted to use him as a wing-back in his preferred back three system.

“The club have been keeping tabs on him and the reports back are fantastic,” is what a source in Manchester told The Sun. The same individual had also compared the young defender to an emerging Gareth Bale.

With a keen eye for the goal, the wideman could be the solution to the Portuguese boss’ left-back crisis, which is currently being dealt by Ashley Young.
