Mourinho Opens Up on Morata Situation

Mourinho Opens Up on Morata Situation

Ahead of the signing of Romelu Lukaku it looked increasingly like Manchester United were going to sign the Real Madrid striker, Alvaro Morata.

Now whether the signing of Lukaku was responsible for ending Manchester United`s desire to sign the 24-year-old or whether the negotiations just couldn`t be brought to a successful conclusion we`ll never know.

However, this weekend has seen some light shed on the transfer.

On Saturday, in the Express, Jose Mourinho explained that the failure to see the deal to a conclusion wasn`t something he`d be criticising the Manchester United board for.

And, on Sunday, after Manchester United had beaten LA Galaxy in the first fixture of their pre-season tour of the US, Jose had this to say to the press about the player not coming to Old Trafford,

'It is a shame.

'He is a player who made it to the first team with me and I have a special liking for. I enjoyed watching his evolution in Juventus and Madrid.

'But we have not reached an agreement with his club and I don't think he can end with us.'

Which leads us to believe that it was the transfer fee that was the problem.
