" "It's not about adding because it's fashionable".
"I think we have a very competitive squad, of course that we are hoping to improve, but if you can not improve the most important thing is trying to keep your best team, your best players".
And with less than four hours left in the window, the Tottenham manager is losing faith that the club will be able to add to the team that finished third in the Premier League last season. That is true, don't believe in £400m, that is the truth.
"It is hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or didn't sell players but sometimes in football, you need to behave different". I think the club made a massive effort to try to extend contracts with people like Harry Kane.
"We believe a lot in our players and there's no point now to say 'why not repeat a similar season like a year ago or the season before, and with more experience?'"
"With Brexit it is worse because the cost is 30 percent more - that is a drama, I feel sorry for the English people - and then keeping the best players, for me [that] is to be fearless".
"If we are happy with our squad and can not improve our squad, sometimes it's better to keep our squad together".
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.
"I don't feel the panic in football".
Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has said he will decide after training on Friday which of his players who played at the World Cup will be available.
But he urged them to knuckle down if they remain for the season, saying: "If all the players today are thinking in a collective target, we can be competitive. That is the key this season".
