Roma coach Mourinho blocks Zaniolo move to Tottenham

Roma coach Jose Mourinho has blocked Nicolo Zaniolo's move to Tottenham.

Il Corriere dello Sport says Tottenham had agreed a £42m deal for Zaniolo before Mourinho intervened.

The loan bid carrying a purchase obligation before personal terms were agreed between the north London club and player.

However, Mourinho wanted the cash upfront - something Spurs cannot achieve before player sales are completed.

Therefore, Roma are now pushing hard to extend Zaniolo's contract past its 2024 expiry date.
