Jose Mourinho Reveals How and Why Potential Alvaro Morata Deal Fell Apart

United were only willing to go as high as £60m for the Spaniard but Real Madrid wanted around £75m as they looked to fund a move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe.

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.

Mourinho admits he targeted four new players and is halfway there with the signing of Romelu Lukaku at £75million and Viktor Lindelof who cost £31million.

The Italian is eager to add the 24-year-old to his squad although the two clubs are yet to reach a financial agreement.

"We need two more players I would say, at least one, but I don't want to say Matic or any other name because I don't think it's correct". Well, we know that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata won't be one of them.

"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. It's understandable", Mourinho said from United's training camp at UCLA in Los Angeles ahead of the pre-season firiendly with LA Galaxy on Sunday.

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

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", the United boss said.

"Every club in the Premier League is powerful, has money to buy, to refuse to sell, and people don't focus on the power to keep the players and refuse to sell".
