Mourinho confirms Morata bid

     Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why his club could not complete a transfer deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this summer. The Portuguese tactician has admitted he was interested in the Spain international prior to moving for Romelu Lukaku instead, but that a deal couldn’t be agreed with his club, reports Independent.

Mourinho said:

“I don’t like to speak about players who aren’t ours because Morata is not our player. I am nobody to speak about players from Real Madrid,” Mourinho said.

“Yes, we have had interest, that is obvious and it’s public. We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well. But it’s a Real Madrid’s right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want.

“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. I do not criticise Madrid and I am not going to criticise my board because my board has made the offer, and they have tried to reach an agreement during a time, and they didn’t come to an agreement. It’s simple.”
