Man United to hold fresh talks about signing top 24-year-old striker this week – report
Manchester United are set to hold fresh talks with Real Madrid about signing Alvaro Morata early this week, say reports
Manchester United are planning fresh talks with Real Madrid about the possibility of signing Alvaro Morata this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Express is reporting that the Red Devils are set to hold discussions with Madrid in the coming days as they look to try and make the 24-year-old striker their second summer signing.
The same story claims that Real Madrid are currently refusing to budge in their £70m valuation of the player and that Manchester United have already had a £60m bid turned down by Real Madrid.
Morata’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks due to his lack of playing time at Real Madrid last season.
The Spaniard is currently on his honeymoon but is likely to want his future to be resolved in the coming weeks.
Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements this summer but the Red Devils have so far only concluded a deal to sign defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
