Alvaro Morata agrees to join Manchester United


Alvaro Morata has reportedly agreed to move from Real Madrid this summer and join Manchester United as both clubs are negotiating a fee.

Morata has been heavily linked with a possible transfer to Manchester United, with reports in England suggesting Jose Mourinho's side will make an offer of £60million after seeing an initial bid rejected.

Or, maybe, they're setting the price bar unrealistically high for Real Madrid, so if they sell Morata and James for less than a combined €155m it can be deemed as failure.

And just days after saying Morata would leave Madrid if his demands for more playing time are not met, agent Juanma Lopez confirmed that he has seen an offer from Old Trafford.

Morata was restricted to appearances from the bench in Madrid last season, with manager Zinedine Zidane often opting for Karim Benzema despite the Frenchman's poor campaign by his standards.

But now Catalan newspaper Sport claim that Antonio Conte has made one final push to sign Morata ahead of rival boss Jose Mourinho.

The report claims United and Real are going to meet on Monday, though they remain a way apart on a valuation. Mourinho has specific profiles that he likes to target and Morata certainly fits into his style of play, as he is an intelligent physical striker who can lead the line on his own.

Although it would seem like Perez is hoping for a lot to get almost £80m for a striker who has managed just 15 league goals this season, he may not be going to mad.

Morata only started 14 Liga games last season, with Lopez revealing last week that his client wanted to find a situation where he would play a bigger role.

But the Spanish club's transfer ban was upheld which means United will have to wait until January to try and get him.

While Real are prepared to listen to offers for the 24-year-old Spanish global, they want £78m for the player and any negotiations with United will not include a potential transfer to Real for David de Gea.
