Jose Mourinho is monitoring Tottenham’s situation as he looks for a route back into management, SportsMail reports.
Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by Manchester United last December.
Spurs are among the clubs that appeal to the Portuguese manager.
Real Madrid, currently coached by Zinedine Zidane, are another and Mourinho remains in contact and on good terms with club president Florentino Perez.
Mourinho is prepared to bide his time and wait for the ideal opportunity, while working as a TV pundit.
The 56-year-old has already declined offers at former club Benfica and a £90million proposal from Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.
