Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez Rodriguez, has sanctioned Alvaro Morata’s Manchester United transfer, according to reports.
His father and agent were both at the Santiago Bernabeu to discuss a potential move and it seems an agreement has been met as a deal is said to be worth around £65m.
Jose Mourinho wanted to complete his summer business before the pre-season tour, however with Victor Lindelof currently the only new arrival at the club, there’s a lot of work to be done.
Morata also shared the same views as he also wanted his future to be decided before Real’s pre-season tour and it looks like a deal could be completed by the end of the week.
Real were holding out for a higher offer, with Man United desperate to sign a new striker as Zlatan Ibrahimovic was recently released by the club after picking up a serious knee injury, however, it seems like they were willing to drop closer to United’s valuation to avoid a summer saga.
There’s been plenty of speculation surrounding his move to United, but we could be approaching the final phase of his transfer as both clubs seem to have agreed on a fee for his services.
