According to recent reports, Tottenham Hotspur defender Davinson Sanchez does not have a future at Spurs under Jose Mourinho.
Since arriving at Spurs from Ajax in what was a £37.8 million deal back in 2017, Sanchez has gone on to feature 129 times for the north London side, chipping in with one goal and providing one assist along the way.
However, so far this season, the £36 million-rated 24-year-old has often found himself left out of Tottenham’s Premier League matchday squads, having not featured in the league since the club’s 3-3 draw with West Ham United back in October.
And, according to a recent report by Caracol Radio (via Sport Witness), the defender, who former Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas described while speaking on BBC radio as ‘special‘ upon his signing for the club, has now been ‘erased’ by Mourinho, with the report also stating that the 57-year-old’s phasing out of the centre-back has ‘devalued’ the Colombia international by a whopping third of his original market value.
Do you think Spurs should sell Sanchez in January?
Transfer Tavern Take
Considering the fact that Sanchez is reported to be learning £65,000 per week at Tottenham, as well as currently being valued at £36 million, if it is indeed true that Mourinho does not plan to use the defender going forwards, a January departure would appear incredibly likely, be that on loan or on a permanent deal.
And, with The Sun reporting that Serie A giants AC Milan are interested in the centre-back, perhaps there is an immediate way out for Sanchez from Spurs.
