There’s ‘potential’ for Jose Mourinho to get the best out of rumoured Tottenham target, Eder Militao.
It’s understood the defender, 22, will be allowed to leave Real Madrid on loan having struggled to settle in at the Bernabeu since joining from Porto in 2019.

Centre-back Militao is behind Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane in the Los Blancos pecking order and it’s thought he can look for a temporary move elsewhere in a bid to get some minutes under his belt.
The Daily Mail reports that Spurs are one of those clubs linked with the Brazilian and talkSPORT’s South American football expert Tim Vickery says he could see that happening.
Militao fits the Mourinho mould, with Vickery explaining he came up the ranks at Sao Paolo as a right-back before Porto converted him into a centre-back due to his tall frame.
However, Militao cuts a ‘nervous’ figure at the moment and has so far failed to live up to the expectation of being successor to Thiago Silva in the Brazil squad.

Vickery told talkSPORT: “He’s not too dissimilar to Davinson Sanchez, Eder Militao. He’s a strapping lad and he’s quick.
“Brazil love him and the idea was he’d be the successor to Thiago Silva at centre-back and so far it’s not working out for him at Real Madrid.
“There is potential there and if there’s one thing Mourinho can do it’s work on the defensive side of his game. Look at what he’s done to Serge Aurier – he looks like a different player this season.
“Jose likes him according to the Portuguese press so let’s see what happens.”

Vickery also commented on the developing transfer story about Ecuador midfielder Moises Caicedo, who’s been described as ‘more than N’Golo Kante’.
Caicedo, who’s at Ecuador outfit Independiente del Valle, looked set for a move to Manchester United but the Red Devils have pulled out of the deal, allowing Brighton to get their hands on him.
The latest reports suggest that the Seagulls will get Caicedo, 19, for £5million, a bargain fee according to Vickery for a player who’s already making an impact on the international stage.
Vickery added: “That’s a steal. If he was Brazilian you’d have to add an extra zero on the end of that figure.

“He’s really well produced. His club produce players to sell. They’ve got a fantastic infrastructure, they bring top quality youth coaches from Spain.
“He’s developed really well and so far everything has been a breeze for him. Get in the first-team – no problem, play against the Copa Libertadores champions – no problem, get in the national side and play against Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia – no problem.
“Terrific engine, box-to-box midfielder, a great athlete. He looks really comfortable and cool in possession and that’s a steal at £5m. I’m surprised the move to Man United didn’t happen, those same sources are saying he’s locked in for Brighton.”
