Manchester United are on course to secure the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, say reports
Manchester United are on course to finally announce the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid on Thursday, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is claiming that the Red Devils are closing in on a deal to bring the Spanish forward to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho seeks his second signing of the summer.
The same report states that Manchester United have made “significant progress” on their deal to land the 24-year-old forward over the weekend, as the player himself enjoys the final few days of his honeymoon in Sardinia.
It is also claimed that Morata himself intervened in negotiations last week by contacting Real Madrid officials to try and speed up a move to Old Trafford.
The story also says that Morata is “ready” to fly to Manchester to complete his transfer and join up with the rest of the squad before the Red Devils jet off for their pre-season tour of the United States on Sunday.
Morata has been relentlessly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and if the latest reports are to be believed, it seems that the Red Devils are finally set to land their man.
