Manchester United are confident of signing Alvaro Morata before 9 July, according to reports
Manchester United are confident of pushing through a deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid before 9 July, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are still keen to bring the 24-year-old Spain forward to Old Trafford and are hoping to complete a deal before the club’s pre-season tour to the USA.
Morata’s future has been a constant source of speculation in recent weeks due to his lack of playing time at Manchester United last season.
And it would seem that he continues to be a top target for the Red Devils as they prepare for their second season under Jose Mourinho.
The same report claims that Manchester United have an offer of £60m ready for Morata and that the Red Devils are hoping to complete the deal in the coming weeks.
The story claims that Mourinho is keen to work with Morata during Manchester United’s Los Angeles training camp as they begin their preparations for the new season.
Manchester United are preparing for a return to the Champions League next season after Mourinho led the Red Devils to Europa League glory last term.
