Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that his side will not do anything crazy during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils were believed to be busy in the summer transfer market in order to close the gap on their local rivals Manchester City.


However, the Portuguese boss, who has spent in excess of £300m since 2016, has made it clear that the Old Trafford side will make no deal this summer.

“We are not going to spend more than we can. We are not going to do anything crazy,” the Portuguese told Sky Sports News.

“We are just trying to improve a little bit more. That’s what we are going to try.”

“Everybody will try to improve – like we did from last season. Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second.”

“Next season, we are going to try to improve, but let’s see what happens. Maybe also City will invest massively and they don’t let the others close the gap to them, I don’t know.”

“But it is not about us and them, it is about us and them and Liverpool and Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs. It is not City and United. It is about the six.”


Man United are now second on the Premier League table with 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.
