United were only willing to go as high as £60m for the Spaniard but Real Madrid wanted around £75m as they looked to fund a move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe.

During the Q&A Mourinho revealed his desire to sign two more players this season, complementing the acquisitions of Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof.

It's no secret that United and Real were negotiating about Morata this summer, but they just couldn't hammer out a deal.

Alvaro Morata grew so excited with his imminent move to Manchester United that he died his hair red, only to see the move fall through. "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 and be speaking about the player". 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.

Mourinho, who is open to re-signing Ibrahimovic when he returns to full fitness, believes his squad needs more additions to cope with returning to the Champions League, especially as he has a number of long-term absentees. We have players that belong to the squad but can not play for next few months, [Marcos] Rojo, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, if Zlatan stays.
