3 reasons why the Manchester United Board is right not to back Mourinho in the transfer window
#2 Over £300 million spent yet no improvement
If you are a part of the Man United Board, then you are probably thinking what at all has Jose Mourinho done with the funds provided for player purchase in the previous transfer windows. It’s already been over £300 million spent yet there has been little improvement to this United team.
The likes of Liverpool and Manchester City have also spent big in recent years, but a clear direction can be seen at both of those two clubs. There is a clear improvement. In the case of the Red Devils, though, players have come in and gone out yet you can’t seem to point out the direction in which the club is heading.
The idea that Mourinho has not been backed enough in the transfer market is neither here nor there. He has already spent over £300 million and the Board and fans should be seeing some improvement by now. That is a basic requirement.
If you go out and buy Bailly and Lindelof for a combined £70 million, you don’t expect the board to replace them the next season. Mourinho has been given all the materials he requested for in the past transfer windows, but it is his inability to improve the team that has led to the Board not backing him this time.
