Mourinho Frustrated As Manchester United Fail To Seal Morata, Matic Deals - 4 years ago
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, is becoming increasingly frustrated at the lack of activity in the transfer market this summer. With the pre-season tour starting on Sunday, United have only bought Victor Lindelof from Benfica. After United won the Europa League final against Ajax in May, Mourinho publicly stated it was down to the executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, to ensure his targets were secured as soon as possible. Six weeks later, no progress has been made in deals for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic. The Portuguese is however hopeful the transfers of the two players can be completed in time for the tour. United play LA Galaxy on 16 July, Real Salt Lake City (18 July), Manchester City (21 July), Real Madrid (23 July), and Barcelona (27 July) in a hectic 11-day schedule, following a six-day training camp at in Los Angeles.
