Jose Mourinho is understood to be wanting to pursue other targets in the window ahead of the next season, despite the Portuguese coach apparently being an admirer of his career.
It is fair to say that the Uruguayan international has had an illustrious one, captaining his country as well as boasting 135 international caps, not to mention winning the Copa America too, as per Transfermarkt.
His club career is not too bad either. The central defender has made a total of 534 club appearances, spending the majority of his time in Spain but now plays in Italy with Inter Milan.
However, his game time has been relatively limited this campaign, featuring in 17 Serie A matches (via Transfermarkt).
The 34-year old may seek a move away in the summer, but it seems as if it will not be to Spurs.
These THFC supporters reacted to the news, and it is safe to say many of them were rather happy:

Like Jan, he is a great player. Just a bit past prime, though.

Spurs were never likely to do this, let’s be honest and real.
