“We made a nucleus of four priorities, four positions to give a certain balance to the squad, to give a certain push in terms of quality and in terms of the qualities that I need and want,” said Mourinho.
“We have three, and until we don’t have the fourth, we are still working hard, myself, the structure, Mr Woodward, the owners, we are working hard on that.
“When we have the fourth, I breathe and we all breathe and then the market will be open.
“We are not going to get the fourth on the 31st of August, no way, we will get the fourth before that and then we are stable but the market will be open.
“Somebody decides if he wants to leaves. If he leaves, somebody else has to come in, so there is a fundamental market and there is a supplementary market.”
