Mourinho: Manchester United can't compete with clubs who buy and buy and buy

Jose Mourinho says he has had to change his
transfer plans because Manchester United cannot
match clubs who "buy and buy and buy non-stop".
United beat Chelsea to the £75million signing of
Romelu Lukaku and have also drafted in Sweden
defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica, while Ivan
Perisic and Nemanja Matic are also thought to be
close to moving to Old Trafford.
However, Mourinho may have to choose between
Inter's Croatian winger and the Chelsea man, who
Mourinho won the Premier League with at Stamford
Bridge in 2015.
Manchester City have added Ederson, Bernardo
Silva, Kyle Walker and Douglas Luiz, while Chelsea
are closing in on the signing of Alvaro Morata to
add to Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger and
Willy Caballero.
And, having seen deals for Antoine Griezmann,
Morata and Eric Dier fall short, Mourinho says
United are struggling to strike deals, just a year
after breaking the world transfer record to sign
Paul Pogba.

"I asked for four players," Mourinho said. "But I'm
ready to go from four to thee because the market is
difficult and some clubs, they think the market is
different than the others.
"We are not a club that is ready to buy and buy and
buy non-stop.
"We are not a club that is ready to pay what the
clubs want us to pay.
"So I am ready to go from four signings to three.
And with this three I just give a better balance to
the team and to the squad and give us better
conditions to compete."
