Manchester United make £60million bid for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United have placed a bid for Alvaro Morata in the region of £60million, according to the Daily Mail.

Jose Mourinho has been looking for a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has recently been released after enduring a serious knee injury which would have ruled him out until January, even though the big Swede scored 28 goals across all competitions last season.

Real Madrid are hopeful of finding a fee in excess of £70m with further negotiations expected to take place in the coming days.

Reports claim he is expected in Manchester over the next few days following advancements over the weekend as United hope to complete a medical for the Spaniard before the end of the week.

Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward are hoping to complete their summer business early this year to avoid any potential transfer sagas, and it seems like Morata could be on the same page as he wants his future fixed within the fortnight.

His agent confirmed Man United have made an offer for his services and that the decision over his future this summer now rests in the hands of Real.
