Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho believes that the transfer market won’t be the same this summer, as he admitted it would be hard to expect crazy investments from the Premier League clubs in the upcoming transfer window.

The coronavirus pandemic brought a halt to many economic activities around the world and football was badly affected as clubs haven’t been getting matchday revenue, and Mourinho thinks it will badly affect clubs in the summer window.

“I think it’s normal that we’re going to have a different market,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “I don’t see the world, and especially the football world, ready for some crazy numbers that we are used to having and the crazy investments that some clubs and some leagues are used to doing.

“The first question after that is when will be the transfer window? I don’t think it will be in July or August, I think it has to go back further than that.

“But my club, if you ask me what I want, I know it’s going to be sensible, it’s going to be balanced. It’s not going to spend rivers of money and we’re trying to respect the situation not just of football but in the world and society overall.”
