Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that he will be provided with significant investment in the off season to sign players for the new campaign.
Since his appointment as United boss back in 2015, Mourinho has already spent nearly £300 million on new players but the Red Devils have not been able to justify the investment as they have struggled in the Premier League over the past few seasons.
While many have been critical about this lack of success despite the heavy investment, Mourinho believes that more money is necessary in the modern game to remain competitive and he has now stated that he will not shy away from utilizing the resources at his disposal in the coming transfer windows.
Mourinho has already spoken about his plans for the new season by suggesting that he is willing to spend heavily in the off season and bring in more high profile players to Old Trafford.
The 54-year-old told reporters, “The club invested a lot of money, the problem is not the money we invest, the problem is the money that others invest and it is the problem that others with better squads, with better stability, with more options, they keep investing and that’s the only problem.
“I think next season we are going to get two or three more players. We are going to lose also two or three. It’s not going to happen a dramatic change and the dramatic improvement. But with time, step by step, with some balance, we have to do it.
“I think money makes a difference, but I ask you please never misinterpret my words against my club or say that my club doesn’t support me or my club doesn’t want to spend because my club spends. Two years ago [we] paid a lot of money for Paul [Pogba] and last year paid a lot of money for [Romelu] Lukaku.
“I am pretty sure that next year it is going to pay a lot of money for one player, but we are doing these things with some balance because it’s the profile of the club. We do it with some balance. We are not that profile of club where there are no limits and the only thing that matters is to get the best.”
Although Mourinho has been criticized often for moaning too much, there is often a degree of truth in his opinions, however controversial they may be.
