Manchester United 'were interested' in Real Madrid's Morata before completing Lukaku deal

Jose Mourinho confirms that Manchester United's pursuit of Chelsea target Alvaro Morata is over

I cannot criticise Real Madrid and I can not criticise my club.

Manchester United are confident about their prospects of fending off Real Madrid's renewed interest in goalkeeper David De Gea, with sources telling ESPN FC that the Old Trafford hierarchy are sceptical over the European champions' ability to pay for the Spain No. 1. We were interested. That's obvious, it was public knowledge but we didn't reach an economic agreement.

'It is a right of Madrid to ask for their players the amount they want.

"They've identified for a long time that his development at Juventus, his training at Madrid and the fact that he's a consistent trophy victor at a very young age, meant that they thought he was the right player".

"We do not determine what the price is of a player of Real Madrid, Real Madrid do that and we didn't arrive at an agreement with Real Madrid". He's still young but he has years of Premier League experience, ' Mourinho said.

"The directors made an offer which they felt was fair but even so, we didn't reach an agreement".

"So maybe we don't get two, we get one, but we need one more to give us more options". The Belgium global was wanted by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

One of Chelsea's star players is said to be desperate to reunite with Jose Mourinho as he reportedly wants to join Manchester United.

"I don't want to be disrespectful, we don't have our door closed, we are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof".

But Spanish gossip outlet Don Balon claim the Champions League winners will keep hold of their striker if they are unable to sign Mbappe.

"I think the market is so unusual, the prices are absolutely out of context, so the clubs without the power to sell, refuse to sell, are one step ahead and there are many clubs in the Premier League who refuse to sell their best players and that is fantastic and makes the competition so hard".
