Tottenham boss Mourinho rival Man Utd for Godin

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is eyeing Inter Milan defender Diego Godin.

Mourinho was left fuming two years ago when it appeared the veteran defender, now 34, had used interest from Manchester United to land a new contract at Atletico Madrid, says the Mirror.

Godin left Madrid to join Inter on a free transfer last summer but could be available when the current season ends.

Spurs are set to re-shape their defence at that point with Jan Vertonghen's contract running down and new signings needed at left- and right-back.

Godin's experience and leadership has marked him down as a potential candidate as Mourinho looks to improve on Tottenham 's poor defensive record over the past campaign.
