Jose Mourinho has revealed that he is paying no attention to Manchester United’s summer transfer business and is enjoying some time away from football.

The Portuguese coach led Manchester United to the Europa League title last month as he secured the Red Devils’ return to the Champions League for next season.

There has inevitably been lots of speculation linking Manchester United with a host of players in the last few weeks as the Red Devils look to bolster their squad ahead of next season.

However, Mourinho was giving nothing away when quizzed directly about his summer transfer plans on Monday in Portugal.

Mourinho told Mais Futebol, as quoted by Metro: “I got fed up and tired of football before the last day.

“I promised that they would not see me in football stadiums, and I stopped negotiating for players and being worried.

“I gave my list to the CEO in April and he has until 31 August to give me what I want, or not.”

Manchester United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford.
