Tottenham stars could want out after seeing Kyle Walker win trophies at Manchester City, says Jose Mourinho

Tottenham stars could want out after watching Kyle Walker’s success with Manchester City, says Jose Mourinho.

Walker has won back-to-back Premier League titles and Carabao Cups since joining City in a £52million deal from Spurs in 2017.

While tying down Harry Kane and Dele Alli to long-term contracts in recent seasons, Christian Eriksen, Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld are yet to sign new deals.

The trio have just a year left on their contracts and have been linked with moves away from the club throughout 2019.

And Mourinho thinks their heads could have been turned after watching Walker thrive in Manchester.

The former Manchester United boss told Sky Sports: “Maybe now, the feeling that I have – what is happening with Eriksen, Vertonghen and what happened at the end of last season with Alderweireld – maybe some of the boys are not so happy to stay.

“Their eyes might be on bigger pictures – look at Kyle Walker, winning trophies.

“Maybe at this moment the team is not that focused or full of chemistry.

“It looks like the relationship with [Tottenham boss] Mauricio Pochettino is happy.

“They have an amazing stadium, Champions League football again.

“But maybe some of the boys want something different. Even at the perfect club, if one player isn’t happy, it can make you lose focus.”
