Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in Real Madrid winger Lucas Vazquez, who has fallen out of favour with Zinedine Zidane this season.
Vazquez has been touted to make a move to Tottenham this summer and Jose Mourinho is ready to raid his old club Real Madrid to add to his wide options ahead of next season.
Vazquez has struggled for consistent minutes under Zindane so far, as the emergence of Vinicius Junior and injury problems have scuppered his playing time. The 28-year-old, who moved to Real Madrid from Espanyol, has slipped below the likes of Eden Hazard, Gareth Bale and Isco in the Bernabeu pecking order.
Mourinho is considering a move for Vazquez, as the duo worked together while he was a reserve player during the Portuguese’s time at Madrid.
Although the Spaniard has suffered from an injury-ravaged season, it is worth remembering he has still won the Champions League three times and lifted the La Liga trophy twice. Real were crowned Spanish champions as Zidane’s side won their first La Liga title in three years by beating Villarreal 2-1 last week, with Karim Benzema scoring twice.
Mourinho wanted Vazquez while he was in charge of Manchester United and it seems like he will get another chance to sign the winger in the summer.
The Lilywhites are lacking quality in the attacking areas, as Mourinho has moaned about the lack of creativity in the midfield, and Vazquez could provide some depth and cover for the wide men.
However, both clubs are refusing to meet in the middle, as his valuation has become a stumbling block. Spurs are prepared to spend £15m on the right winger, while Los Blancos are demanding £23m. Whether or not Daniel Levy will be able to get a deal done remains to be seen.
Tottenham fans, should Levy sign Lucas Vazquez in the summer? Let us know in the comments below!
