In April, Mourinho verbalized of his confidence that Coalesced will have conducted some “fascinating” transfer business by the terminus of the summer transfer window.
“I’m sure, at the end of the summer, probably we won’t have exactly my first options, because it’s difficult to succeed in every attempt,” Mourinho said.
“But I’m sure we’re going to do something interesting and something to improve our team for next season.
“I’m not a silly manager to say I give the names and you have to give me the players – not at all.
“I give the names, I give the options, I give the second options in case the first options are not possible, but I give all the information based on my analysis, my experience and projections for the future.”
