Jose Mourinho warned over Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy’s transfer policies

In an interview with Goal (h/t Express), former Tottenham Hotspur star Ramon Vega has warned manager Jose Mourinho that he will have to adapt to Daniel Levy’s strict transfer policies.

Mourinho is known to spend lavishly on signings, having done so at almost each of his previous clubs. However, he might not be able to do the same at Tottenham, given Levy’s stringent ways in the market, reckons Vega.

Mourinho will have to sell some players to generate transfer funds

Indeed, Levy has always been a reluctant spender in the transfer market. Our club’s record signing stands at £54m – the amount we paid to sign Tanguy Ndombele last summer. Prior to that, Davinson Sanchez’s £36m purchase from Ajax was Spurs’ record transfer.

When compared to the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, Tottenham are known to be much reserved spenders in the market. Which is why the work Mauricio Pochettino at the club over the past few years needs to be lauded greatly.

And now, Vega has warned that Mourinho must adapt himself to this reality at the club and look to bring in young players through. (h/t Express)

“He starts to realise the Spurs philosophy, how to manage a club for [Spurs chairman] Daniel Levy is even more stricter in terms of the financial capacity and spending on players.”

What makes the upcoming transfer window even more challenging is the fact that the club will have limited finances, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. So, unless we secure Champions League football, things will be difficult. Player sales will become necessary in order to generate transfer funds to sign the targets.

It will be interesting to see how the club goes about business once the window is open for business.
