Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, has brushed off questions about former club Chelsea’s capture of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid earlier Wednesday, insisting he was happy with United’s high-profile signing of Romelu Lukaku last week.

“I’m not interested in what Chelsea FC does, really,” Mourinho said. “We got a big player, a player that I can compare with what he was a few years ago, because he worked with me for a few months and his development was very good.

“We have a player who is now a top player. You have to prove it at the highest level, he has to do it for United, in Champions League matches but he has amazing qualities.”

Mourinho meanwhile reiterated that United had not finished their transfer business, but conceded the market made doing business difficult, and he may scrap initial plans to sign four players during the window.

“Everybody knows I would like four players and I’m ready to go from four to three because the market is difficult, some clubs think the market is different from others,” he said.

“We are not a club that is ready to pay what the clubs want us to pay so I’m ready to go from four to three,” he said.
