According to a report by The Telegraph, Alvaro Morata has accepted a deal to join Manchester United and is waiting for both clubs to come to a mutual agreement as regards the transfer fee.

Chelsea, meanwhile, has watched rivals United and Manchester City make early progress in the transfer market and may now be prepared to move. United hope that a bid in the region of £60million would be enough to get Morata.

Morata and the United manager share a good relationship as it was the latter who gave him his debut during his stint as the Spanish capital club's manager between 2010 and 2013.

"I haven't met Real Madrid's directors yet".

Mourinho highlighted his experiences taking charge at Inter Milan, Real Madrid and United as he told the Portuguese newspaper - using the English phrase - that he always joins clubs in "big trouble".

"What does big trouble mean?"

Rooney was widely expected to leave the club this summer having been handed what appeared to be a farewell cameo against Ajax in the Europa League final win.

The 24-year-old Spain global forward only started 14 league games as Madrid won LaLiga, and the Champions League.

"It's nice being back in the Champions League but the main goal will be winning the league".

Mourinho has made powerful centre forwards key to his success throughout his career - and proved particularly adept at identifying strikers suited to the Premier League. "He knows since March who I want, what I want, how much I want", said Manchester United's manager of his executive vice-chairman. United had a very heated summer previous year as they signed Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Bailly and Mkhitaryan as they are hoping to have another very exciting summer in 2017.
