The Red Devils paid a staggering £59.7m to bring the Argentina international to Old Trafford from Real Madrid last month.
Chelsea in this moment is not a spender
Chelsea previously held the record for their purchase of Fernando Torres from Liverpool for £50m back in 2011.
But when asked if the Blues are likely to break the record again, Mourinho told Eurosport: “Chelsea not, for sure, because Chelsea is working in relation to the Financial Fair Play.
We are making money to be able to spend money. In every transfer window Chelsea is losing players, is selling players.
“In the winter one we sold [Juan] Mata; in the summer one we sold David Luiz and [Romelu] Lukaku.
“So Chelsea in this moment is not a spender – Chelsea in this moment is making more money in transfers than the money we spend.”
