Spurs to make Audacious £27m Serie A Duo Bid

The all new rumour reporting article system is in full effect!

The Rumour

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is to make a double raid on former Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan squad.
Rumours of his interest in former Portsmouth star Sulley Muntari are well known, and while a summer bid is expected to be forthcoming, the ex-West Ham and Bournemouth manager will also try to lure Nicolas Burdisso.
Sportsmediaset suggest Redknapp has already made an approach to the Serie A champions, and they are now considering the offer.

The Analysis

It seems that Inter and Tottenham are inextricably linked once again. Jermaine Jenas and Luka Modric have both been rumoured to be on Jose Mourinho’s wishlist so i guess it shouldn’t be a surprise that two San Siro men are linked with a move in the opposite direction, but how likely are these to happen?

Well Muntari has been a success at the club and would surely not wish to leave a side that is set to win the Serie A title once again and will of course be playing Champions League football, something Spurs are not able to offer the former Pompey man so i guess its more a question of whether Jose would want to sell the talented attacking midfielder and i think that is not likely either.

28 year old Argentine Burdisso is another kettle of fish however and after five years at Inter without really securing a regular slot in the starting eleven he may feel the urge to leave the club and perhaps a challenge of a move to the Premier League would motivate him? The versatile and adaptable defender could well be a great addition at White Hart Lane and would surely help the club reverse it’s at times leaky defence and perhaps more importantly could offer a reliable option at centre back to turn to in case of injuries to perennially crocked Ledley King.

The Likelihood

Muntari to Spurs: Nope
Burdisso to Spurs: A distinct possibility
