Sanchez tipped to quit Tottenham after major update

Danny Mills has tipped Davinson Sanchez to leave Tottenham this summer amid a “big” defensive overhaul.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Leeds United and England full-back admitted it would be interesting to see how Nuno Espirito Santo lines up at the back next season.

Football Insider revealed on 10 May that Spurs are planning on selling Sanchez this summer.

Now his agent Néstor Villarreal, via Gol Caracol, has opened the door to a potential exit this window.

Sanchez endured a difficult season under Jose Mourinho last term and managed just 17 Premier League starts in 32 games across all competitions.

He was called up to Colombia’s squad for the Copa America and is yet to return to Spurs pre-season raining as he helped them reach the semi-finals.

Asked whether he expects Sanchez to leave Tottenham this summer, Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley: “Yes.

“Tottenham’s whole defence needs an overhaul. People need to know what’s happening with it. What direction is he going to go in? What system are they going to play?

“I would expect some big changes at Spurs over the next month or so to sort out that defence.

“It depends on style and who’s going to play where and all those sorts of things.”
