Jose Mourinho has claimed that Manchester United may need authorities to crack down on Manchester City’s spending before they can hope to challenge their rivals for the Premier League title again.

Mourinho has regularly complained that United cannot match City’s clout in the transfer market since his arrival in Manchester and pointed to City’s spending power as a reason why United struggle to compete with their neighbours.



City have refused to respond to the substance of the allegations throughout, maintaining that the club will not comment on “out-of-context materials” which were “purportedly hacked or stolen from City Football Group and Manchester City personnel and associated people” Follow the Independent Sport on Instagram here, for all of the best images, videos and stories from around the sporting world.
