The German international has become one of the best central midfielders in the world since joining Madrid from Bayern Munich in 2014, and Mourinho has made no secret of his admiration for the 27-year-old. When things were not making a headway, Morata even cut short his honeymoon to push through his transfer.
United approached 24-year-old Morata in May, ahead of the Champions League final, and negotiations gathered pace in the first half of June.
Then Manchester United expressed an interest, but that failed to materialise either.
"But we have not reached an agreement with his club and I don't think he can end with us".
Last season Morata netted 20 goals in 43 appearances for Madrid. Despite more people reading Forza Italian Football, advertising revenues are falling - as is the case in general among media outlets.
Reports in Italy suggest the deal to take him to San Siro is as good as done which, if confirmed, will see Conte miss out on his top target once again.
