Jose Mourinho has ruled out the prospect of Tottenham Hotspur completing the signing of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Fernandes.
Reports over the summer claimed that Spurs had agreed personal terms with the Portuguese midfielder following a 2018-19 season during which he scored 20 goals and claimed 13 assists.
However, it was confirmed last week that Fernandes had signed a new four-year contract at Sporting, who he joined from Sampdoria in 2017.
Speaking on the subject of Fernandes, Mourinho told Sport TV: "We are different club at this level.
"We are not a club that is going to make big transfers in the market, nor is it going towards players who are already developed or at a certain level of expectation, also economically.
"I would definitely say no because Bruno (Fernandes) is a player of a level and value that is not for us."
Manchester United also kept a close eye on the progress of Fernandes, only to opt against making a bid for the player.body check tags ::
