Moutinho tells Tottenham that move will not happen

Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho has told Tottenham to forget about making any advances to sign him in the January transfer window, The Daily Star reports.

Moutinho was the target of Villas-Boas’ affections on transfer deadline day, but that move collapsed at the 11th hour and the Spurs boss was looking to make another move in January. Spurs lost Luka Modric to Real Madrid in the summer and Villas-Boas wants to recruit in central midfield. However, the Portuguese international has ruled out a switch to the Premier League and wants to continue at Porto, who are currently second in the Portuguese top-flight.


The 26 year old said: “I’ve made the decision to stay at Porto. I’m happy.” Pini Zahavi, the player’s agent, has indicated that Moutinho could follow former Porto teammate Hulk to Russian side Zenit at the end of the season and snub the advances from White Hart Lane. Villas-Boas’ side entertain Aston Villa this weekend after their 1-1 draw in the Europa League on Thursday and Spurs will be looking to continue their impressive form from their last game, a 3-2 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Too much is being made of this 'deal', if Spurs had signed him before the window shut they would have been overloaded with midfield players. Do Spurs need him that much? Dembele would hardly have played ahead of him would he? I don't think Spurs were that desperate to do the deal and if they did it would only have been on their terms and not the extremely high price quoted by Porto and his wages would have been similarly high. He is a player like Modric and at the same stage of his career and most likelyl go to one of the big Spanish or Italian clubs, possibly another of the English clubs that will pay the money. As for Tottenham, i don't think either his price, age, wage fit Spurs' profile at all. If anything this 'deal' was a smoke-screen for the other deals they did on deadline day, it was never close and i doubt will happen.

Yep, don't let the fact that the manager said, in early September, that we wouldn't be going back in for him stop you from printing this bollox.

Why dont we just ignore the fact AVB said Spurs will no longer be chasing Moutinho and just whack out another article?. Yea, thats a good idea.
