What Tottenham Needs To Do Now?
This summer will be more difficult for Mourinho to rebuild his Tottenham team that he hopes can challenge for the title.

There have been links about the Tottenham star Harry Kane for a move away from Spurs as he is keen to win trophies at this stage of his career. Mourinho has to keep his best players to have any chance for a good showing next term but for that, he will need support from the Spurs board. This will be impossible for Spurs to challenge for the league title or even to qualify for the champions league without any quality signings.
