Alvaro Morata to Chelsea: Real Madrid have no interest in Eden Hazard swap deal - reports

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why his club could not complete a transfer deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this summer.

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".

The 24-year-old striker is now with Real Madrid in the United States for their pre-season preparations and there are suggestions that Zinedine Zidane would not mind having him in his squad next term.

"I am nobody to speak about players from Real Madrid".

Matic certainly looks available this summer after Conte's decision to replace him with Bakayoko but at this stage Mourinho is remaining coy on any interest from United and we'll have a battle on our hands to sign him from Chelsea. We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well.

"They've identified for a long time that his development at Juventus, his training at Madrid and the fact that he's a consistent trophy victor at a very young age, meant that they thought he was the right player. 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". Nor one from Real Madrid, ' Mourinho told reporters in LA.

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

"He's the kind of player that everybody knows".

"But I don't want to say that because everything is so hard I wouldn't like to be in Ed Woodward's position negotiating because everything is really hard". Obviously there are other good strikers in football but the Premier League is a very specific habitat, a different habitat. He's still young but he has years of Premier League experience, ' Mourinho said.
