Jose Mourinho feels that Manchester United will no longer be able to attract rivals by providing big offers for the best players because of the challenging scenario of the Premier League.
Man United have been the powerhouse when it came to finances. However, the proliferation of the rich owners and also the attractive broadcast deals mean that the club doesn’t feel like selling their prized asset anymore.
Mourinho has given an example of the club paying a substantial amount of money to get Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Carrick for Tottenham. However, the same thing might be impossible for Dele Alli or Harry Kane.
The Portuguese coach is looking for a central defender as the transfer window opens up within a month. He accepts that any additions to the team might need to be below elite level even if he is expecting least movement in United during the transfer window. He comments that it is difficult to purchase players of high level. The clubs are powerful and will not want to sell the players. Moreover, to sell they are going to go to extraordinary levels.
Michael Carrick had been the best player of Tottenham a few years ago but a few years later Brebatov had taken the place. However, when it comes to bringing Harry Kane, Eriksen, and Dele Alli, it is just impossible. According to him, the transfer market is quite difficult unless these clubs go to extraordinary numbers.
