Blues manager Jose Mourinho praises rivals Spurs.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has described London rivals Tottenham as ‘the kings of the transfer window’ after the North London club signed seven players this summer.
Spurs spent £108m on new additions but sold Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a world record £85.3m.
The Welshman’s departure saw Spurs finish the summer with a net profit but the club broke their transfer record three times to sign Paulinho (£17m), Roberto Soldado (£26m) and Erik Lamela (£30m).
Vlad Chiriches, Christian Eriksen, Etienne Capoue and Nacer Chadli also arrived at White Hart Lane.
Arsenal have been widely commended for signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid for £43.4m on deadline day but Mourinho is in no doubt about which club he feels had the most beneficial transfer window.
“Tottenham are the champions [of the summer window] by a distance, by a distance,” the Portuguese told The Independent.
“They bought seven players, international players for their countries, big countries, almost all of them. Tottenham were the kings of the transfer window. They have a fantastic squad.”
