But Matic, sold and then bought back again to the Blues by Mourinho, has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford to work with the Special One.

Swedish defender, Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Belgian striker, Romelu Lukaku have come in to try and take Manchester United to be succesful in the nect Champions League.

The future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been up in the air in recent weeks, but Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has dropped the biggest hint yet about his next club.

Speaking on United's pre-season tour in the US, Mourinho said "He [Matic] is a Chelsea player and I can't speak about him". We need more, we wanted four, so I would say 50 per cent of the job is done, but I don't want to say that because everything is so hard.

Mourinho has now confirmed that Manchester United were indeed in for Morata but says he holds nothing against Real Madrid for standing firm in their valuation of the player.

"We need more, " said Mourinho.

"Yes, we have had interest, that is obvious and it's public". Real Madrid's record breaking march to the title in La Liga in 2011/12 saw Mourinho topple a Barcelona side many felt could not be usurped. "We wanted four new players, fifty percent of the job is done".

United move on to face Real Salt Lake in Utah on Monday, keen to put their players through the grind to get them ready for the Premier League. The Spaniard is still being closely monitored by Real Madrid, despite having several years left on his contract at the moment.

"(We made) offers we thought were fair and yet no agreement was reached".
