Jose Mourinho Comments On Alvaro Morata's Chelsea Move

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has commented on Alvaro Morata's sudden move to Premier League champions Chelsea.

Lukaku Talks Mourinho & The Impact He Has Made

The Spanish striker was linked with a move to the Red Devils for much of the earlier stages of the transfer window, but things turned sour when Real Madrid and the English giants could not come to an agreement over the transfer fee.

On Thursday, Chelsea announced that they had agreed a fee with Los Blancos for Morata, and Mourinho's has since had his say on the deal.

"I'm not interested in what Chelsea Football Club does, really," the Portuguese manager said, as quoted by ESPN.

"We needed a striker. With Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) in his best condition, we needed one to give cover, to give options, him and Marcus (Rashford) was not enough, especially after Zlatan's injury.

"We got a big player (Romelu Lukaku), a player that I can compare with what he was a few years ago because he worked with me a few months like four or five years ago. His development was very, very good.

"We think we have a player that is now a top player in Europe, has to prove it at the highest level. There is always this point of you have to prove it at the highest level, and now he has to do it for Manchester United, he has to do it in Champions League matches, but I think he has amazing qualities.

"I think, with Chelsea, it was obvious they were going to sign a striker, especially after the situation with the manager (Antonio Conte) and Diego (Costa).

"It was clear they were going to sign a striker, they did it with Alvaro, and Alvaro is a very good player for them."

Morata made 43 appearances for Real last season, scoring 20 goals and assisting six further strikes in all competitions.
