Hands, knees, sneeze!
Following initial interest in the summer, Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho is reportedly preparing a fresh €11.5 million bid for Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas. ‘The Special One’ may also opt to offer Spurs a cash-plus-player deal with Sulley Muntari being used as aggregate.
The transfer is likely to appeal to Spurs boss Harry Redknapp as Jenas is currently out of favour at White Hart Lane and the Londoners need cash to fund any potential January moves for the likes of Ruud Van Nistelrooy or Younes Kaboul.
This raises an issue that has come up several times over the last few days – It would be nice to see an Englishman move abroad and challenge himself in a top foreign league for once. Jenas isn’t the most gifted player but I think he is a lot better than most Spurs supporters give him credit for. He is capable of moments of real quality but I concede that they have been too few and far between of late and the lion’s share of €12 million does seem a little too tempting to turn down.
What do you reckon Spurs fans? Would you be glad to see the back of him?
