Jose Mourinho refuses to comment on Nemanja Matic interest from Manchester United

Jose Mourinho refuses to comment on Nemanja Matic interest from Manchester United

The Belgium global was wanted by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte.

"I don't want to be disrespectful and be speaking about the player". We have players that belong to the squad, but they can not play football for the next three, four months: Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, if Zlatan stays.

"I think the market is so unusual, the prices are absolutely out of context, so the clubs without the power to sell, refuse to sell, are one step ahead and there are many clubs in the Premier League who refuse to sell their best players and that is fantastic and makes the competition so hard".

Jack Wilshere Transfer Reportedly Wanted by Sampdoria
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he feels English worldwide midfielder Jack Wilshere will return to North London for next season.


The Real Madrid striker was all set to join Manchester United but manager Jose Mourinho opted for Everton's Romelu Lukaku instead.

"I don't like to speak about players who aren't ours, because Morata is not our player", the United boss said.

Morata was spotted with his new do while training with his Real Madrid teammates in LA - we can only assume they had a field day with it.

Arsene Wenger concedes he should have signed a new contract earlier
He added: "He wants to play as high as he possibly as he can and I'm not sure West Ham are going to be right at the top". But Lacazette made no mistake and Arsene Wenger will have noted his impact.


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

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, but it's Real Madrid's right to ask for their players the amount of money that they want. We do not determine what the price is of a player of Real Madrid, Real Madrid do that.

That, coupled with the belief at United that Madrid would struggle to pay for a deal leads you to believe De Gea will remain at Old Trafford.

And as Arsenal fans are understandably excited with the signing, Mourinho isn't anxious about his rivals latest recruit. Our relationship was always very close despite it not working well for us together.


"The directors made an offer which they felt was fair but even so, we didn't reach an agreement".
