However, the latest development in the transfer saga has come as a killing blow to Manchester United.

There have been no ins or outs at Tottenham this summer, while other Premier League big guns have made significant investments.

The London club finished third last season to secure their place in Europe's elite club competition for a third season running.

"The information I have is no", Mourinho said at his pre-match press conference when asked if he expected any new arrivals on Thursday. The club made a massive effort to try to extend contracts with people like Harry Kane.

"The club is making an incredible effort to finish our stadium as soon as possible". We didn't sell players and with 25 in the squad it is hard to add. If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together.

"For me it's a good thing for Leicester to keep our valuable players in the team".

"(There is) no point to say we will not repeat a season like past year or the season before with more experience, with players who compete at the high level of the World Cup. That is a fantastic experience for him to translate to our team.

The Citi Open , which takes place in Washington , is an ATP circuit tournament and is endowed with $1.89 million in prize money. Zverev moved a match closer to repeating as champion with a 6-2 6-4 victory against fellow young gun Stefanos Tsitsipas .

"I believe in the way that we work and I have no doubt we will be competitive, with or without signings".

The two differing transfer deadlines mean Tottenham fans face an anxious wait to see if they can hold on to one of their best players, and Spurs are unlikely to be too receptive to selling Eriksen as they have been unable to bring in any players of note this summer, with their pursuit of Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish seemingly dead in the water.

"We have a very good squad, with very good players, and it is very hard to add players to that".

"Newcastle of course in this period have an advantage to us in their preparation with the whole squad, but that is not a reason to complain".

"Now we have players who compete at a high level in the World Cup, and we have the captain who is the world champion, the one who lifted the trophy".

And yet, with the season about to kick off, Spurs' position as a Premier League power seems more and more uncertain. I am so proud about them because they were very focused on trying to arrive in a very good condition.

"I think I want to make clear that all are fit, but maybe we need to care for some players and not push them to compete, not take some rash decisions with some players due to their background or for different reasons that we are assessing now after Monday".
