Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has been talking about the impact of the football shutdown on transfers and preparing his team to face Manchester United. The Portuguese believes the transfer market will be a very different one to the one that existed before with “crazy numbers” that were involved in big signings. Mourinho also questioned when the transfer window will be amid the current unprecedented situation and he wants Tottenham to be “sensible” and not spending “rivers of money”.
Jose Mourinho said: “To be honest, I think at this moment it’s the last thing we are thinking about. At the moment at the club, we’re not really thinking about it. There are no talks about it because at this moment we think about safety, about following every rule, we’re trying to be perfect, it’s not just about the testing, it is about everything, we’re trying to be perfect in the club and we don’t think about it. I’m not going to run away. I think it’s normal that we’re going to have a different market, I don’t see the world and especially the football world, ready for some crazy numbers that we are used to having and the crazy investments that some clubs and some leagues are used to doing. The first question after that is when will be the transfer window? I don’t think it will be in July or August, I think it has to go back further than that, but my club, if you ask me what I want, I know it’s going to be sensible, it’s going to be balanced, it’s not going to spend rivers of money and we’re trying to respect the situation not just of football but in the world and society overall.”
