Jose Mourinho has ruled out Zlatan Ibrahimovic joining Tottenham.
The 38-year-old helped Manchester United win the Europa League and EFL Cup under Mourinho and has a long-standing relationship with the Portuguese, having also played under him at Inter Milan.
Ibrahimovic is a free agent after leaving LA Galaxy this month but Mourinho says there is “no chance” of the striker signing for Spurs while Harry Kane is at the club.
“Amazing player, amazing guy – but I would say no chance,” he said. “We have the best striker in England. One of the top two, three strikers in the world.
“It doesn’t make any sense for a striker of Zlatan’s dimension – in his late 30s but that can play at any club in the world – to come to a club where we have Harry Kane.”
