“I think Lukaku on Aug.31 would have been £150million. Matic would have been £60million or £70m. Neymar changed everything.
“If the biggest transfer in history had still been Paul Pogba. I think Philippe Coutinho would now be in Barcelona for £101milliom.
“People look at the £200million figure now. Now the players of £20million became £40m, the players of £40million became £60m., and everything changed. Lukaku and Magic, now, would have cost us £200million in total.
“But because we did in the first part of the summer, it was much less. I think we did well in financial terms and well in the preparation terms, getting them before the season started.
