Manchester United Football Club are set to continue talks with Real Madrid over the signing of Alvaro Morata, according to the Daily Express. Jose Mourinho seems quite keen to add a new striker to the mix, which makes sense after Zlatan Ibrahimovic wasn’t handed a new deal.
In the report, they say that personal terms have already been agreed between the Red Devils and the player, which certainly bodes well as the clubs prepare for more talks.
They say that Manchester United have had a £60million bid rejected for the 24-year-old with Madrid refusing to budge from their £70million asking price that they’ve placed on Morata.
Last season, the striker found the back of the net on 20 occasions which is particularly impressive considering he was playing second fiddle to Karim Benzema and Real Madrid for the most part.
It looks as though he is ready to move away from Spain in order of acquiring regular first-team football elsewhere, and I would love to see him come to Old Trafford.
He’s an impressive player, who turns up in the big games which is an asset that’d be hugely valuable to United. Morata can score all types of goals, and he could spearhead an attack containing the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.
