Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho expects the forthcoming off-season transfer window to be unusual. In view of the financial effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on football clubs, Mourinho says the transfer window will be “strange”.
He expects this off-season to be unusual, though he refused to comment on Spurs’ transfer goals. Indeed, Mourinho says the transfer window will be strange.
“We know what we want, but at the same time we can all expect a strange summer,” Mourinho said, according to The Guardian.
“I believe that it is going to be a bit strange in the sense of a different transfer window than in previous seasons, but in this moment I don’t think it is about anyone fighting for his future,” he continued.
“I think it is about everyone fighting for the points we need to finish the season the best that we can,” he concluded, ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League match with Newcastle on Sunday.
Also, Mourinho said he has not discussed Harry Kane’s future with him and that he is satisfied with Hugo Lloris.
Kane is a frequent target of transfer rumours, and Manchester City is the most recent club to be linked with the England striker.
But Mourinho played down any speculation about Kane’s future, and he’s maintaining that they have not discussed his future.
“No. He works so well every day,” Mourinho said when asked if the pair had spoken about his future.
“He is such a professional, committed with the team, performing well. I’ve nothing to speak with him,” he went on.
“Three years of his contract [left]. I have nothing to speak with him about. Unless he wants to speak with me about it and until now he never approached me in relation to anything.”
