Everton and Man United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have been locked in a debate all day over who will win the race for this Euro 2016 winner, we can’t decide who is right but one thing we can be sure off is that our Southampton supporting punters will not be happy about this one.
The Daily Record are reporting that Southampton defender Jose Fonte is the subject of intense interest from Premier League rivals, Everton and Man United.
Former Saints boss, Ronald Koeman, has tabled a £9m bid for the man he made captain on the South Coast, whilst Jose Mourinho is thought to be considering bringing his compatriot in to add experience to his defence.
The 32-year-old joined the Saints in League 1 from Crystal Palace six years ago and has gone on to become a crucial part of their side.
This summer the central defender became the first player to win both the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and a European Championship, not bad.
