Man Utd will not spend big this summer

Manchester United - Old Trafford

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says the club will not be one of the big spenders in the summer transfer market.

The Special One insists he will only “invest the basic to improve our squad”.

After United’s 2-1 win over Tottenham in their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday Mourinho said: “We are only going to invest the basic to improve our squad.

“We need to find a replacement for Michael Carrick and if Maraoune Fellaini leaves, we need to find a replacement for him.

“And there is always in a squad, a player or a couple of players who are not playing a lot and will try to leave.

“So we will touch our squad and more than spend, spend, spend believe in the evolution of our players. We have some young players who need to get with both hands opportunities for their evolution.”

United splashed out a whopping £169.5million on signings last summer.
