Jose Mourinho has told Ed Woodward it is up to him to deliver the players he wants at Manchester United.
Mourinho says he has given the United executive vice-chairman a complete list of his summer transfer targets and the responsibility is now on him to get the deals done.
Top of the list is Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, who United have been trying to sign in a £86million deal for the past six months.
And Mourinho, in Monte Carlo to watch the Monaco Grand Prix, says from now on it is down to Woodward to make sure United have a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.
Asked about Griezmann on Sky F1, Mourinho said: “I don’t know – Ed Woodward knows since March who I want, what I want how much I want.
“He knows everything since March,. Now it is for him to work, he can have his holiday in August. In August I am working.”
Mourinho has been planning for a return to Champions League football for months, but was only assured of that fate when his team beat Ajax to win the Europa League.
And now he is determined to escape football at least for a few weeks as he recharges his batteries following a tough first year in charge of United.
He even claims he has no interest in who will win the cup finals being played across Europe this weekend.
Mourinho added: “I am really happy with our season, with the trophies, to be back into the Champions League.
“Now is time for me to disconnect completely, to do other things – to enjoy family and friends and forget football. I need that.
“I don’t care about football for a month. I know that today is the day of the FA Cup Final, and cup finals in Spain and Germany and more.
“I don’t care, I don’t care at all. I’m not even interested in results.”
