Tottenham boss Pochettino happy to keep Alderweireld

Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish could be a Tottenham player by the end of the week

Spurs had nine players involved in the final stages of this summer's tournament in Russian Federation - more than any other club - and they only returned to pre-season training on Monday.

"It's not about adding because it's fashionable to sign players". I think the club is doing an fantastic effort to try to finish the stadium as soon as possible, and the lodge is finished at the training ground. Then with Brexit it's worse because the cost is 30 per cent more. Building a stadium that costs almost £1billion - that's is the truth, don't believe when they say £400million.

Pochettino said at the end of last season that he wanted the club's hierarchy to be "brave" - a comment which many took as a strong hint he wanted new recruits to push on from a third successive top three finish.

"For me [that] is to be courageous".

"We didn't sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is hard to add players".

"It maybe looks bad [not to sign anyone] because of the perception and because of the history of football, but that is our decision - to keep the best players and to keep the squad".

Courtois Wants Real Madrid Move - Agent Steps Up The Pressure
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has expressed his desire to leave the Stamford Bridge side for Real Madrid in the summer. And according to Spanish outlet AS, new Blues boss Sarri is planning talks with the player this week about his future.

"Our decision was not to sign, [even though] it is the fashion to sign or because we are the only club in Europe that has not signed players".

Understandably, many fans have been left deflated by the clubs lack of activity but Pochettino insists they have been "brave" and pointed to the fact they've been able to keep their best players after tying the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Davinson Sanchez down to new contracts. "It's a fearless decision".

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now". If we have all the squad thinking as individuals rather than as a collective, you can not achieve what you want and can not succeed.

"You need to give your best to the position the manager says. That is the key this season".

"I am the boss and if I expect you to do something then you need to provide it".
