Jose Mourinho appears to have adopted a new transfer policy this summer at Tottenham Hotspurs.

Jose Mourinho is famous for spending big when it comes to transfers, especially when he is building a new project.

This summer will ultimately be his first major transfer window at Spurs. Under usual circumstances, you would expect Mourinho to be demanding some major signings.

Lillywhite fans will have been hoping the Portuguese would be twisting Daniel Levy’s arm more than Mauricio Pochettino did.

However, after being hugely criticized at Manchester United for trying to bring in older ready-made replacements that did not make financial sense, it appears the “special one” is changing his tactics

Speaking to Sky Sports, he insists that he wants Daniel Levy and Tottenham to respect the current climate and ultimately not spend huge amounts of money.

Mourinho thinks this transfer window will be like no other and represents a bit of an unknown.

He said:

“The first question after that is when will the transfer window be?” 

“I don’t think it will be in July or August anymore, it has to go further than that.”

“It is normal you are going to have a different market, I don’t see the world especially the football world, ready for some crazy numbers we used to have.”

“I would like my club to be what I know what we will be sensible, balanced, and not going to spend rivers of money.”

“We are trying to respect the situation, not just football but the situation in the world and society overall.”

So just who will Jose Mourinho go for this summer?
