Alvaro Morata’s agent has hinted that the striker could be set to seek a transfer away from Real Madrid this summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils are said to be in the hunt to sign the 24-year-old Spaniard this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his attacking line-up at Old Trafford.

Morata’s future has been a relentless source of speculation this week due to his lack of playing time for Real Madrid last season.

The Spanish forward scored a respectable 15 goals in La Liga last season but only made 14 starts for the Spanish side in the top flight.

Now, the striker’s agent has hinted that Morata could be keen to seek a move away from the Bernabeu in search of regular playing time.

Agent Juanma Lopez told Foot Mercato, as quoted by Metro: “Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role.

“He wants to play more. Which is normal for an attacker who has scored 19 goals. It is too little.

“I do not know [if he will stay at Madrid]. This has been a brilliant for Real Madrid who have won many titles.

“The player will take a clear and definitive decision in the coming days. I have not yet met with the representatives from Real Madrid.”

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League last season but won the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign at Old Trafford.
