Summer Transfers will be like Wall St Collapse - Mourinho

Jose Mourinho believes this summer's transfer market will be like "Wall Street collapsing" thanks to Manchester United and Manchester City pushing up transfer fees.
United have already spent £25m on Memphis Depay and plan to sign up to four more players during a huge summer of business.
Having lost their Premier League title to Mourinho's Chelsea, City are also poised to do big business and have targeted the likes of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
Mourinho confirmed that he, too, would be looking to do business, lining up the likes of Antoine Griezmann and Raphael Varane even though he thinks transfer fees could be pushed up by his rivals.
"The market is difficult,"said Mourinho. "I can imagine that this summer will be like Wall Street collapsing. I can imagine that some clubs are coming with such determination to the market that they will take it to unexpected directions.
"But we are in a good situation. We have this stability in our squad. We don't need dramatic changes."
