Mourinho: Would I prefer to have £300m to spend? No, I don't need players in January

Since arriving at the London side, Mourinho has overseen a revival of their fortunes, leading them to five victories in seven games, including four wins from five in the Premier League.

As such, the Portuguese is forecasting a quiet window ahead – and he is quite happy with that.

“I’m relaxed because I got this club exactly as I was expecting,” he told Sky Sports.

“I expect to be asked about Daniel Levy saying we don’t plan to spend a lot, and people to ask if I’m upset.

“Will that upset me? No. I knew it, he told me! Everything was crystal clear, no secrets in any of the club’s plans, and this makes me happy.

“I don’t like being at a club and being surprised by things. Here there are no surprises.

“Would I prefer to have £300m in January? I wouldn’t. In January I don’t need players.”

The former Chelsea boss will face off against the Blues, who have lost four of their last five and appear to be on a slide, on Sunday at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“There is never a good time to play Chelsea,” he insisted. “The reality is we were 12 points off – the Champions League was almost a mirage, it was so, so far away – now it’s three.

“It would be amazing for us to win and reduce the gap from 12 to zero so quickly but it’s always difficult.”

Last time out, Spurs snatched a late 2-1 victory over Wolves, with Jan Vertonghen grabbing a stoppage-time winner.

Before the January window opens, Spurs have home matches against the Blues and Brighton to negotiate before a trip to Norwich on December 28.

On New Year’s Day, they will travel to Southampton.
