Jose Mourinho has his say on Manchester United’s Summer transfer window

Two down, two to go. That is seemingly the general consensus, with regards to Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward’s transfer business, as they look to pursue and finialise their last couple of deals that would wrap up the Summer transfer window for Manchester United. With Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof all tied up, fans have expressed their delight with the two latest recruits, as both players certainly add depth to rather depleted areas of the squad. However, at a club like Manchester United, deals and negotiations are always on the go, with Jose Mourinho this week already speaking on more potential transfer business.

As fans have seen this Summer, the current transfer market is rather crazy, with player’s prices having risen through the roof, following an inflation in the market. With some fans becoming agitated and impatient with the lack of recruits, Jose Mourinho has in fact defended Ed Woodward, stating in a recent interview,

“Everything is so difficult. I would not like to be in Ed Woodward’s position of negotiation because everything is really difficult. Every club in the Premier league has quality, money to buy and money to refuse to sell. People do not focus on the power to keep. I think the market is so strange. Very good players, there are not many to buy. The prices are out of context. The clubs with the power not to sell, refuse to sell.”

Despite the rather prolonging of announcing new signings, Mourinho is however undoubtedly expecting further business to be conducted. With strong transfer speculation circulating around names such as, Ivan Perisic, Nemanja Matic, and Eric Dier, there is no denying that United are in the hunt to bolster their midfield options, but Jose is keeping quiet on specific names. Speaking in the same interview he stated,

“Maybe we don’t get two more, maybe we get one. The squad needs that balance. I don’t want to say any names, because I don’t think it is correct.”

As ever, no player names were mentioned in the conference, but Jose’s optimism around new arrivals should excite United fans. It is fairly clear that there are many negotiations still in development behind closed doors, with Ed Woodward working hard to finialise deals, hopefully before the end of United’s pre-season tour. Fans will certainly be remaining hopeful that new signings could be completed over the next couple of weeks, in order of giving them sufficient preparation time with the senior squad, for the season ahead.
