Sources told ESPN FC that Grealish is open to the idea of a move to Tottenham as he wants to play in the Premier League and the Champions League.

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". "Building a new training ground, finishing this summer the (player's) lodge was a massive investment".

Tottenham Hotspur became the first Premier League club since the summer transfer window began to fail to sign a single player but Mauricio Pochettino said he was happy for the club to "behave differently". If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together. "I have no doubt we are going to be competitive, with or without signings".

Speaking about any possible incomings, the Tottenham manager said in a press conference: "I think it's so hard now".

Paul Pogba's Manchester United future unsettled by Jose Mourinho's criticism
Pogba was inconsistent last season and was even dropped by the United boss for a spell in the second half of the season. But this isn't the first time the 25-year-old's future at Old Trafford has been in doubt.

United boss Jose Mourinho has been interested in signing Alderweireld from Tottenham since last summer and the 29-year-old was reportedly ready to reject all other clubs in order to join the Red Devils.

When talking in a media session about Spurs' opening fixture against Newcastle this Saturday lunchtime, Pochettino addressed the rumours, saying: "We didn't receive (any offer) for any player".

The Argentine also added that while their stadium cost "nearly £1bn", Brexit's effect on the pound against the Euro has made for a "30 per cent" increase when looking to bring players over from the continent. [It's about] if you really need [them] or not and then if you can get your target or not.

"I didn't see Tottenham buying anyone anyway, but I'd have them fourth", Merson told Sky Sports. "Maybe some will stay here to try to reach the level, to give more time, because maybe we don't want to take risks".
