Manchester United boss has ruled out the sale of goalkeeper David De Gea to Real Madrid, stating a deal would ‘make no sense’.
The Spanish international has long been linked with a move to the European champions, with a deal in August 2015 breaking down at the eleventh hour.
“Do you think a club that is trying to attract the best players is a club that is open to sell their best players?” Mourinho retorted when asked about Madrid’s potential interest in a new goalkeeper, as cited by PA Sport.
“This makes no sense. If you want to go to that level, we have to attract the best players like we did with Alexis, [Nemanja] Matic, [Paul] Pogba and so on, and don't let our best players go.”
De Gea’s current deal at Old Trafford runs until June 2019 with the club reportedly working on extending the contract until 2023.
