Manchester United have been given a major boost in their chase for Jose Fonte after Southampton informed the defender that he can leave the club in January, according to reports.
The Daily Record claims that the Portugal international has been targeted by Jose Mourinho and Everton, who failed to sign him with a £9 million bid in the summer transfer window.
Fonte is reportedly unhappy that Southampton have not improved his contract, despite receiving a promise from the club before he won Euro 2016 with Portugal.
The 32-year-old, who has featured in all but one of Southampton’s Premier League games this season, has been at St Mary’s since 2010. Source.
