Real, who are now training at the same base as United in Los Angeles ahead of their International Champions Cup fixtures, are expected to make a second attempt to sign De Gea this summer - two years after dramatically failing to complete a move for the former Atletico Madrid keeper because of a paperwork hitch on deadline day.

"So maybe we don't get two, we get one, but we need one more to give us more options. It's understandable", Mourinho said from United's training camp at UCLA in Los Angeles ahead of the pre-season firiendly with LA Galaxy on Sunday.

"I don't want to be disrespectful, we don't have our door closed, we are not happy with just Lukaku and Lindelof. I am nobody to speak about players from Real Madrid", Mourinho said. 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.

"It's not my position to talk about a player who isn't in my team - and nor about a Real Madrid player".

"(We made) offers we thought were fair and yet no agreement was reached".

Despite generally playing second fiddle to Karim Benzema last season, the Real Madrid marksman did score 15 La Liga goals last season, averaging a goal every 89 minutes. However, the Old Trafford club were successful in beating the Blues in signing the Premier League striker.
