But despite Spurs' lack of summer activity, Pochettino has refused to panic, insisting he has a very competitive squad ahead of their league opener at Newcastle - live on Sky Sports on Saturday.

The tonic to that lack of transfer activity is that Spurs have been able to keep all of their top stars, with a number of them tied down to new deals.

Mauricio Pochettino didn't manage to bring in any new signings this summer but the Tottenham manager expressed his delight at keeping his squad together with no key players leaving.

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

"Our targets are always in the same level of Real Madrid or Manchester United or Manchester City, but for different circumstances we can not achieve that".

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.

"I am not anxious, I am not sad, I am so happy".

"What the club is doing is showing it is so courageous", he offered.

"If we can not improve our squad it's better to keep it together".

"Of course it's hard to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn't sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently", he said in his press conference earlier today, as per The Mirror.

"I am with full energy, I am fitter than last season because I was thinking if a player involved in the World Cup arrives not fit then I have a possibility to play", the former Argentina worldwide defender said at the club's training ground.

"There's no reason to not trust in our squad and no reason not to believe in our club or believe in what we can do".
