According to CalcioMercato, Fabio Paratici has discussed a potential part-exchange deal with Roma for Nicolo Zaniolo.

The Italian midfielder has been touted as a Spurs target for quite some time now, and according to this report, Tottenham are willing to offer Joe Rodon as a part of this deal to bring the attacking midfielder to north London.

Of course, this doesn’t sound like a very fair deal. After all, Zaniolo has been one of Serie A’s top performers for some time now and he’s a key player for Roma. Meanwhile, Rodon can barely get a game at Spurs, so a part-exchange deal seems to be rather one-sided.

However, Tottenham may well have offered Rodon as a part of this deal due to the fact they know Jose Mourinho is a huge admirer of the Welshman.

Mourinho, of course, was the manager that brought Rodon to Spurs, and he’s given him massive praise in the past.

What’s been said?

Mourinho went as far as to label Rodon as ‘perfect’ during his time in charge of Spurs.

“He’s perfect. Works very hard, young guy, wants to learn, very enthusiastic. He played already matches that represent a lot, he played important matches against some of the best teams,” Mourinho said ahead of a game against Fulham in 2021.

Tempting

Of course, Mourinho won’t want to lose Zaniolo, but any offer including Rodon may be tempting for the Roma boss.

Indeed, it’s clear to see from these comments that the ex-Chelsea man is a huge fan of the centre-back, and with Paulo Dybala arriving in Rome, it may actually be time to move Zaniolo on.

Rodon is a player Mourinho loves, and with the right amount of money included in a part-exchange deal, this is a transfer that could well happen.

Keep an eye on this situation in the coming weeks.
