Nicolas Zaniolo

Tottenham had reached an agreement with Roma and Nicolo Zaniolo on a summer move, only for Jose Mourinho to block the transfer.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Spurs were due to loan out Zaniolo for the season with an obligation to pay £42.2m next season.

The Roma board and the then-player wanted the transfer to happen, only to see Mourinho interfere.

La Gazzetta dello Sport add that the move is not dead, however, and Spurs could return with an improved loan fee to give Mourinho more cash to spend this summer.
