Jose Mourinho insists the £198million fee PSG are poised to pay for Neymar is ‘not expensive’.
Mourinho believes the Brazilian striker is worth the record-breaking price tag, but he did express concern the move would inflate the value of players who were not so deserving of big transfer fees.
‘When we paid that amount for Paul I said that it was not expensive,’ Mourinho said after United’s 2-1 friendly victory over Sampdoria in Dublin.
‘Expensive are the ones who get into a certain level without a certain quality.
‘I think that Neymar is the same (as Pogba). I don’t think he is expensive. For £200m I don’t think he is expensive.
