Roma travel to high-flying Napoli on Sunday and ahead of that match, Giallorossi boss Jose Mourinho has been speaking about a certain star he wanted to sign whilst manager of Tottenham.
The legendary manager said that whilst at the North London club, the Portuguese coach wanted to sign Kim Min-jae from Fenerbahce but Daniel Levy would not pay the small fee for the defender.
Mourinho said via Fabrizio Romano: “I wanted to sign Kim Min-jae when I was at Tottenham. I had some FaceTime calls with him — our bid was €5m, Fenerbahce wanted €10m for Kim and for Tottenham that wasn’t possible at that point.”
“Now look at Kim and his level, he’s a top player”.

Over the last few weeks Tottenham fans have been singing for Levy to leave the club and it seems that Mourinho has now thrown some fuel on this heated relationship.
