Mourinho Not Intereted In Chelsea Transfers

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, says he’s “not interested in what Chelsea FC does”, as the Stamford Bridge outfit announced their agreement with Real Madrid for the transfer of Alvaro Morata.

Mourinho, who missed out of signing Morata, told reporters in Houston on Wednesday: “I’m not interested in what Chelsea FC does, really.”

“We needed a striker, so yes, we needed with Zlatan in his best conditions, we needed one to give cover, give options, him and Marcus was not enough, especially after the injury.”

Morata broke into Real Madrid’s first team during Mourinho’s time at the Santiago Bernabéu, and was close to reuniting with his former boss before United signed Romelu Lukaku from Everton.

“We got a big player (Lukaku)- a player that I can compare with what he was a few years ago because he worked with me a few months four or five years ago.”

“His development was very, very good, so we think we have a player that is now a top player in Europe.”

“He has to prove it at the highest level, there is always that point. Now he has to do it for Manchester United, in Champions League matches but I think he has amazing qualities.” Mourinho added.
