Agent admits Man Utd target Morata casts doubt on Real Madrid stay

Agent admits Man Utd target Morata casts doubt on Real Madrid stay

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic reportedly on the way out, manager Jose Mourinho has been searching for a replacement striker and has seemingly found his man.

As they prepare to return to the Champions League and look to launch a serious Premier League title bid next season, United may be far from finished in the summer transfer market.

Morata was linked with moves to Chelsea, Arsenal and even AC Milan but Jose Mourinho's side have won the race to sign the talented striker. "He wants to play more".

The Sun report that United have offered £52 million for the 24-year-old Spain global who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season.

And agent Juanma Lopez told Foot Mercato: "Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role". The 24-year old came through the club's academy before moving to Juventus in 2014.

General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt is stepping down
Immelt bought a $7.5 million home on Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay a year ago ahead of the move, according to Boston Magazine . Walsh said that he was "caught off guard" by General Electric's leadership shakeup announced Monday morning.

He may not be back in action until the autumn and with United having struggled badly to score goals last term, Mourinho has made a new striker a priority.

"It is very hard because when you are talking about strikers now there are not many out-and-out strikers", added Cole, who will be back at Old Trafford in September as assistant manager to Bryan Robson for the United Legends' game against Barcelona.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has chose to join Manchester United this summer according to the Sport Review. They have yet to agree a fee with Real Madrid, but it is clear that the Spaniard is the club's priority target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been released in recent days.

In June 2016, Real Madrid exercised a buy-back clause to bring Morata back from Juventus for £26.2m, and the forward has emerged as a key member of Zinedine Zidane's squad.
