- Manager looking for forward to support England captain
- Mourinho tells Danny Rose he has no future at Spurs
José Mourinho wants a new striker who will embrace the competition with Harry Kane rather than shrink from it, while he has told Danny Rose he has no future at Tottenham. The manager also said he would consider letting Serge Aurier leave, although he would rather keep him.
Mourinho was keen to sign a centre-forward in January as he does not believe Son Heung-min has the qualities to play there – meaning Kane is his only recognised senior No 9 – and he was upset when he could not get one.
