Tottenham boss Mourinho faces heavy transfer budget blow

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho faces a major cut to his summer transfer budget due to the coronavirus.

The Mirror says loan signings are now high on the agenda – and that has been ­communicated to the club's external recruitment teams – as last year's Champions League finalists look to cut costs.

Spurs have already made a U-turn over furloughing their playing staff – and that decision, while welcomed by fans' groups, will have an effect on their financial situation.

That has led to budgets being hastily revised as cancellations of non-football activities at their ­£1billion stadium are starting to hit ­Daniel Levy's bottom line.

The revenue from additional events was to be an important part of the club's strategy to maximise income from their new home.
