Jose Mourinho says Manchester United's pursuit of Gareth Bale is 'over'

Jose Mourinho says Manchester United's pursuit of Gareth Bale is 'over'”

"If he's playing tomorrow, well, no I wouldn't think of that possibility of signing on (Bale)".

Swedish defender Victor Lindelof, from Benfica, ex-Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku, a £75 million recruit from Everton, all play for the Europa League winners. When you get into the Champions League semi-finals, you have four of the best, I would say, five or six teams in Europe. But we are building a strong team with very good human beings and young people who are really excited about becoming better players and winning trophies.

While Real's league season does not start until August 20, United face West Ham on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

He told BT Sport: "I'm just concentrating on my football and I'm not listening to anything".

Isco conceded that Madrid were put under some pressure by United in the closing stages but was in no doubt that they fully deserved to win a third Super Cup since 2014.

That sparked a brief period of pressure from Jose Mourinho's United side and they could have drawn level when Marcus Rashford burst through but he was denied by Keylor Navas' save, ensuring Real won their fifth worldwide trophy under Zinedine Zidane.

"I haven't even thought of the possibility of signing him". Last year, Zidane excluded starters from the previous edition of the UEFA Super Cup so they could rest from the preceding Euro 2016.

"We talk about Real Madrid and we talk about the Champions League winners, which the best trophy you can win in European football", said the Spain global.

"If he plays tomorrow it's probably confirmation they'll count on him next season".

Real Madrid vs Manchester United is set to begina at 7.45pm BST, 8.45pm CET, 12.15am IST.

"It helped we have been training in 38C heat in Madrid!"

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.
