Jose Mourinho Comments On Cristiano Ronaldo To Manchester United Rumours
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has commented on rumours linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a move to the Red Devils.
The Portuguese tactician was speaking while on United's pre-season tour of the US when he said it was "mission impossible" for his side to sign his countryman.
"We have never thought about it because he is such an important player for his club, of great economic power, where we have not been able to find a reason that could have made us think that Ronaldo could leave," Mourinho said, as quoted by the Daily Telegraph.
"I am not a defender of my club once you waste time on players who are mission impossible."
The United manager also opened up about his side's chase of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, insisting that it is "a shame" the clubs could not agree on a transfer fee.
"It is a question for Florentino (Perez, the Real president)," Mourinho added.
"Clubs put price tags on players, not the one who wants to buy. He belongs to Madrid. Madrid has decided and we have not come to an agreement. It is simple. It is a shame.
"It is a player who made it to the first team with me. We have a special liking for (him), he is someone special. I enjoyed watching his evolution at Juventus and Madrid. It is like that. I don't think he can end with us."
Mourinho has already signed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku in this transfer window, but reportedly wants to bring in two more new faces to Old Trafford.
