Mourinho refuses to rule out Matic move

16 July 2017, 03:38 | Myron Mathis

With striker Alvaro Morata still at the club and James Rodriguez on a two-year loan at Bayern Munich, Real's transfer plans have reportedly been thrown into jeapordy.

"I would not like to be in [chief executive] Ed Woodward's position negotiating because everything is really hard", Mourinho told reporters ahead of United's first pre-season friendly against MLS side LA Galaxy.

The Manchester United boss added: "We open our door for him to recover with us, and at the same time let's make a decision that makes us all happy".

"We need more. We wanted four - 50% of the job is done".

'Arsenal won a competition, we won two-and-a-half, I like to say. "We would like two more but at least one".

The Serbian midfielder has been told he can leave Stamford Bridge for £40million following the arrival of Monaco's Tiemoue Bakayoko, 22, for the same price.


Arsenal are also said to be interested in Matic, who turns 29 next month.

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", he said. Real Madrid's record breaking march to the title in La Liga in 2011/12 saw Mourinho topple a Barcelona side many felt could not be usurped.

"Yes, we have had interest, that is obvious and it's public".

United move on to face Real Salt Lake in Utah on Monday, keen to put their players through the grind to get them ready for the Premier League.

"I do not criticize Madrid and I am not going to criticize my board because my board has made the offer and they have tried to reach an agreement during a time, and they didn't come to an agreement". And we didn't arrive at an agreement with Real Madrid.
