Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insists he will not splash the cash to catch Man City

The Red Devils splashed out a whopping £169.5million on signings last summer – having forked out £157.25m the year before.

But boss Mourinho has ruled out a repeat of his club’s massive sprees when the window reopens next month.

The Special One, who led United to a 2-1 win over Tottenham in their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday he 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 are set to finish second behind champions and neighbours Manchester City, the biggest spenders last summer when they paid out a total of £217.3m on new players.

Mourinho added: “Can we improve next season? Let’s try.

“If Manchester City keep this level or improve this level, only they can say. But if they have the team they have and if they’re going to invest on top of the team they have, it will be difficult for all of us.”
