Tottenham are yet to sign a player this summer and moves for players such as Jack Grealish have stalled as Aston Villa have changed their tune on his the winger's future at the club.

Earlier in the day, Pochettino said: "At the moment we haven't received for any player".

Tottenham Hotspur have made some unwanted summer transfer window history after they became the first Premier League side to not make any signings in a summer transfer window since it first became a thing in 2003.

Thibaut Courtois has been reminded of a time when he hurled taunts at Real Madrid fans, by their local rivals, Atletico Madrid . The reigning European champions forked out €35m (£31m/$40m) plus a season-long loan move for Mateo Kovacic to Stamford Bridge.

"Of course it's hard to understand for people that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently". And if they don't play then I don't want them to give up and start to say: 'The gaffer is a bad guy.' It's not a drama - drama is another thing. If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino says the club did not receive any offers from Manchester United for defender Toby Alderweireld. "It's a fearless decision".

On how people interpreted his comments at the end of last season, Pochettino added: "I am responsible for what I told you or what I tell you but I can not be responsible for what you believe that I wanted to tell you".

"I think it's so hard now because it's only four hours until the end and I don't have news now", Pochettino told a news conference. You need to be clever in how you settle your principles, your strategy and to try to win.
