Jose Mourinho has admitted what he would like and what he can get in terms of transfers at Tottenham Hotspur are two completely different scenarios.
The Portuguese head coach has revealed that he has already had discussions with Daniel Levy over his transfer plans but is not comfortable at disclosing the finer details of his meeting.
Tottenham’s revenue has been impacted substantially as a result of the coronavirus pandemic with a loss of around £200million with the club unable to welcome supporters or host additional events such as the NFL or music concerts (Telegraph).
While rivals Chelsea have already spent big on the double arrival of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, there is likely to be a completely different transfer strategy in the white half of North London (Football.London).
He told Football.London when asked whether he would be looking to bring in another holding midfielder after the departure of Victor Wanyama coupled with Eric Dier’s change of position to a centre half: “I understand your question but I don’t feel very comfortable to speak about it publicly,”
“One thing is what I would like and of course Mr Levy knows what I would like, but I know the situation perfectly.
“That’s why I say, ‘I would like’ and I don’t say ‘I want’, because I have to respect the situation of the world and the situation of my club.
“So we have to be very cautious in our words. Of course we have to improve. When I say we want to improve, we have to improve generally. So let’s see. Let’s see what is possible.”
