The Portuguese tactician claims that expectations should be high for the club because of their summer spending.
“I know the players they’ve bought,” said Mourinho. “Navas and Negredo are world champions, European champions, both 27. Jovetic, for more than two years, has been one of the best in Italian football, a 23-year-old who has five years at Fiorentina, playing in Serie A at the highest level.
“Fernandinho is more than that because he has more experience, a national team player, big experience too. I think they are players without surprises who are more than ready for the Premier League.
“If you see their age, their maturity, they are in the perfect moment of their career to go to England, and there will be no need for adaptation, no need of work to learn the project. They are players at the top of their careers, experienced but still young, so I think they’ve bought very, very well.”

The start of the 2017-18 Premier League season is just around the corner and is shaping up to be one of the most competitive yet.
As always it is the so called “big clubs” that have splashed the most cash in the transfer window so far this summer. Manchester United or City? Arsenal or Tottenham? Who are the winners and losers of the transfer window so far?
