Jose Mourinho still wants Matic and Perisic to sign

"A hard habitat for strikers and normally they need some time to adapt, but Lukaku has been in the Premier League for five seasons".

Once United brought Romelu Lukaku over from Everton for £75 million (a deal potentially worth a world record £90 million if/when the add-ons kick in), they dropped out of the running for Morata.

Jose Mourinho wants two more signings as Manchester United prepare for the new Premier League season, but he would not comment on rumours linking the club with a move for Nemanja Matic. If that is for him to stay and for us to wait, let's say, until December maybe, because I don't think before December he can get back to competitive football.

"We need two more players, I would say".

Manchester United will sign at least one more player before the end of the summer transfer window. We need more, we wanted four, so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done, but I don't want to say that because everything is so hard. Well, we know that Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata won't be one of them.

"We have had interest (in Morata)".

Zlatan was released by Manchester United in June after a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in the Europa League ruled him out until early 2018. We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well. "We wanted four new players, fifty percent of the job is done". They then return to Europe to play Valerenga and Sampdoria before the Premier League kicks off. I cannot criticise Real Madrid and I can not criticise my club. We will not be the ones who put a price on a Real Madrid player.
