Why I’m Not Putting Pressure On Manchester United To Buy More Players – Mourinho
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has hinted that their summer spending could be over.
Mourinho said at the end of last season, that he wanted four new faces. But United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, has only been able to bring in Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof in the close season.
This week, it was reported that Mourinho would be prepared to wait until January to spend any more money, having held interest in Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale and Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic.
With just 13 days to go before the deadline, Mourinho is not confident of landing his fourth target.
Asked whether United were still in the market, Mourinho told a news conference on Friday: “I don’t think we are, unless something happens to put us in the market again.
“I told Mr Woodward my plans were four but I also told him be cool, no pressure from me, do what you think is best for the club.
“We will be together again for another transfer window in January and next summer so no pressure from me at all. I’m happy with the squad we have. I’m ready to go without the fourth player. If we are out of market, I’m fine, I’m ready.”
