The Mirror says Mourinho is open to offering Marco Materazzi in exchange for Modric before the winter market shuts.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is chasing a loan signing to strengthen his Spurs defence because of captain Ledley King’s persistent injury problems - and Materazzi is under consideration.

Modric has failed to live up to huge expectations following his £16.6million move from Dynamo Zagreb last April. Juventus are also interested in Modric, who has struggled to fit into Tottenham’s formation.
