Joao Moutinho insisted that he would not rule out the possibility of leaving FC Porto for another club in the summer transfer window, according to Sky Sports. His comments came amid strong speculation that English club Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a bid for the playmaker. “I will continue to work here,” said the midfield maestro. “But if an offer arrives and it is good for both parties, Porto will, of course, study it. I do not know if there is the possibility of joining Tottenham as yet. Every player has the ambition to try new leagues, but I am at Porto and I will continue to work in the same way.” He has a €40 million release clause in his contract, which ends in 2015.
