Al Ittihad signs this summer Jota might try to get out of his contract given the rumors of a possible transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.
Just months after leaving Celtic to move to Saudi Arabia, Jota is preparing his exit strategy from Al Ittihad.
Apparently, Jota is considering leaving Al Ittihad, according to writer Rudy Galetti.
Jota was acquired by Al Ittihad for £25 million from Celtic as part of the summer spending binge in Saudi Arabia.
Though the trade immediately went south after Jota made an early appearance for Nuno Espirito Santo, there have been rumors of a speedy departure from the Middle East.
Jota seeking route out of Al Ittihad
According to the most recent Galetti report, Al Ittihad will not include Jota on their squad list until the winter transfer window.
Jota is left wondering why this incredibly strange turn of events occurred.
The transfer windows in Europe have officially closed, leaving Jota seemingly trapped.
According to reports, Jota is debating whether to attempt to pressure Nuno into changing his decision or to try and have his contract terminated.
The inability to play games would result from becoming a free agent; he would have to wait until January to sign with a new team.
Jota’s time in Saudi Arabia turning into a nightmare, it may be preferable for him to train and prepare with a different club.
Tottenham may look into Jota move
If Jota were to become a free agent, you have to assume that a lot of teams would be interested in signing him, and Tottenham may very well be one of them.
Tottenham were aware of Jota’s availability, according to a 90Min report from the end of August. This opened the door for a loan move to North London with a late switch being taken into consideration.
