Jose Mourinho has revealed that Manchester United will not spend big money during the summer transfer window as he wants to move forward with his current squad.
The Red Devils are currently second in the Premier League table with 16 points behind local rivals Manchester City.
Mourinho, who spent the total of £291.3m in transfers since he took over 2016, has claimed that he will evolve his current players instead of spending big.
Mourinho gives updates on Manchester United’s summer transfers:
“We are going to invest the basic to improve our squad,” Mourinho told United’s official website.
“There is always in the group of players, in the squad, there is always a player or a couple of players who are not playing a lot, and they will obviously try to leave, so we are going again to touch [tweak] our squad and to believe that more than [a case of] spend, spend, spend, is probably the evolution of our players.”
“We have some young players that need to get, with both hands, opportunities with their evolution, so let’s see.”
Mourinho spent big money signing Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba, Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic during two years at Old Trafford.
