Jose Mourinho breaks silence on Manchester United's failed Alvaro Morata transfer

Ivan Perisic is another target, but would not impact the Matic move, with Mourinho still able to spend around £100 million - more than enough to get both players, or should the move for Matic fail, land another holding midfielder.

The Real Madrid striker was all set to join Manchester United but manager Jose Mourinho opted for Everton's Romelu Lukaku instead.

The Portuguese tactician has admitted he was interested in the Spain worldwide prior to moving for Romelu Lukaku instead, but that a deal couldn't be agreed with his club. It's no secret that United and Real were negotiating about Morata this summer, but they just couldn't hammer out a deal.

He said: "I can't say any word about a player who is a Chelsea player, it's hard it's the same with Morata, we have to respect the player, the club, the owner, the manager, I don't want to be disrespectful". It is obvious, it is public and we have not reached an economic agreement.

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

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.

On the other hand, Lukaku was the second-highest scorer in the division netting 25 goals in 37 appearances and impressively was the only player to score five or more goals with his head, left foot and right foot.

Mourinho, who is open to re-signing Ibrahimovic when he returns to full fitness, believes his squad needs more additions to cope with returning to the Champions League, especially as he has a number of long-term absentees.
