Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho has predicted a drastic change in the transfer market as soon as football returns.

The 57-year-old anticipates big charges to be a distant memory for now after the coronavirus pandemic.

Spurs bought Steven Bergwijn for ₤27million from PSV in January, while also breaking their club record to sign Tanguy Ndombele for a reported ₤55million last summer.

But Mourinho believes the Premier League, and leagues worldwide, will need a various method with the coronavirus crisis striking clubs’ financial resources.

” It is normal you are going to have a various market, I do not see the world – specifically the football world – prepared for some crazy numbers we used to have,” he told Sky Sports.

” The very first concerns after that is will be when will the transfer window be? I don’t believe it will be in July or August anymore, it needs to go even more than that.

” I would like my club to be what I know what we will be: practical, well balanced and not going to invest rivers of cash. We are attempting to appreciate the circumstance, not simply the football but the scenario in the world and society overall.

” But it is the last thing we are believing, we are not thinking of it. There are no talks about it. We consider safety and following every guideline.”

The Premier League is yet to set a date for a return and players have actually not resumed full-contact training.

Leading flight clubs are expected to green light phase two of training on Wednesday as they inch closer to a restart after being held off in March.

The Bundesliga has actually already resumed and Mourinho wishes to follow by playing once again, with a go to of former club Manchester United their next fixture.

” Because the minute the Bundesliga began, given that the Portuguese and Spanish leagues revealed a date to re-start, that is the most tough minute for us,” he stated.

” We want to play, it’s hard to see other nations playing football and we don’t do it. German professionals are offering the world something they love and we are not.

” However we trust what the authorities and Premier League are doing. When they state it’s the moment to start, we desire to do it.”
