Manchester United Failed In Alvaro Morata Bid Says Jose Mourinho

"It looks hard to see Alvaro Morata in a Red Devils shirt with the arrival of Romelu".

While United missed out on Morata, the club snapped up Lukaku and made the striker the second most expensive transfer in British football history, behind only Paul Pogba.

Chelsea and Manchester United, who had both been strongly linked with a move for the 24-year-old earlier this summer, had been told they would have to pay closer to £80m for the Spanish worldwide.

The Red Devils have been heavily linked with a bid to bring the 24-year-old striker to Old Trafford throughout the summer and were thought to be closing in on a deal to sign the Spaniard.

As per the provided Mirror link, the Los Blancos previously backed away from signing the Spanish global and their renewed interest has angered Jose Mourinho, who is now ready to sign Toni Kroos from the European Champions.

Samples of horse meat taken during the investigation concluded that the horse meat was destined for markets outside of Spain . The police investigation was coordinated by the Federal Police, the Federal Food Agency in Belgium and Guardia Civil.

"Nor one from Real Madrid", Mourinho told reporters in LA.

"I reached the point of seeing Morata as a teammate, he was very close [to joining United]", he said.

Talk of Morata moving to United is unlikely to die down while speculation persists that Madrid are ready to reignite their interest in goalkeeper David de Gea.

Asked what he thought would happen with De Gea this summer, the former Madrid youth player said there would be no movement.

Griezmann was their No1 target going into the transfer window but Atleti's transfer ban ultimately saw him sign a new contract and stay. The club tried to sell Álvaro Morata as well and United were interested at first. I wish him the best, at Madrid or anywhere else.
