Mourinho blames derby win for West Brom loss

Despite seeing Manchester City emerge champions of the 2017/18 Premier League season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that he won't do 'anything crazy' in the transfer market this summer in an attempt to catch their cross-town rivals.

The Portuguese has spent more than £300million since he was appointed as United manager in 2016 and had earlier claimed that they needed to spend money before they match with City, but he is adamant that he won't go overboard in terms of bringing in new players this summer.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City became Premier League champions after the Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at home by West Brom on Sunday and many United fans would expect them to spend lots of money in the transfer window again in the summer.

But Mourinho is adamant they don’t need to go overboard.

“We are not going to spend more than we can. We are not going to do anything crazy,” Mourinho said, as reported by Sky Sports. “We are just trying to improve a little bit more. That's what we are going to try.

“Everybody will try to improve - like we did from last season. Last season we finished sixth and this season we are going to finish, hopefully, second.

“Next season, we are going to try to improve, but let's see what happens. Maybe also City will invest massively and they don't let the others close the gap to them, I don't know.

“But it is not about us and them, it is about us and them and Liverpool and Arsenal and Chelsea and Spurs. It is not City and United. It is about the six.”
