Jose Mourinho claims that spending more money would help Manchester United stop Manchester City from running away with the Premier League title.
The former Chelsea boss has already spent £300 million to try to rebuild the Red Devils since he was made manager before last season, but he claims it is not enough.
The Red Devils fell 15 points behind Manchester City in the title race over the weekend following a hard fought draw with Burnley.
The gap could have been worse had it not been for Jese Lingard’s brace off the bench which helped the them to a point after Burnley had gone 2-0 up.
According to Jose Mourinho “Manchester City buy defenders for the price of strikers”
When he was reminded that the Red Devils have spent roughly £300 million since he took over last year, the Portuguese was quick to play down the outlay claiming it was “it is not enough.”
He further claimed that the historically big clubs are usually punished in the transfer market because of their history.
According to Talks Sport, he was asked of he intended to still spend big during the January transfer windows, but the Portuguese manager left the room without answering.
The Red Devils have been linked with Malcom of Bordeaux this month.
