Jose Mourinho has confirmed Tottenham will not have the spending power the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United will possess in the next transfer window.

The Portuguese has poured cold water on reports suggesting the north London club will be on a spending spree this summer following the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

But he insists they’ll do “little important things” to battle hard with those sides with big budgets. “We know that we are going to be in the same league, in the same world, as clubs that are going to do completely different to us,” Jose said as Sky Sports quoted. “You have now examples already of clubs investing and making important movements in the market and we are still nine matches away from the end of the season. “United bought Bruno Fernandes, Chelsea’s buying [Hakim] Ziyech and [Timo] Werner, they can do what they want. It’s not our problem. “We focus on ourselves. We are going to improve our squad in the way we can do it. No problem. We are going always to be very balanced which is what Tottenham normally is. “Would I expect us not to do anything and to stay exactly with the same squad that we have in this moment? My answer is no. “I expect us to do some little important things and if we do our little important things and we improve in two, three positions that we need to improve in the squad, I am completely open to the challenge, I am completely supportive to the board, to the owners.”
