Jose Mourinho wants Alvaro Morata at Old Trafford and even the Spaniard wants to play for the Red Devils but Madrid are demanding a huge fee.
The La Roja striker warmed the bench last season and this summer, he is keen on joining Manchester United (Marca) to play regular first team football.
The former Juventus striker has already accepted (Cope) the personal terms (salary & contract length) to join United but the British giants have not yet met the asking price of Real Madrid. Few days back, we covered a report (via Marca) claiming that the 24-year-old striker has agreed a five year deal worth €125 million with United.
Marca claim that the European Champions are not ready to lower their asking price of 90 million euros ($100million). The report says that the Los Blanos are not in a hurry and are ready to wait until the deadline day for the right offer.
Even Independent made a similar claim yesterday. The British source stated that United thought they can agree the signing of Morata for a fee of 75 million euros but Florentino Perez only wants 90 million euros.
The report further says that the Real know that James Rodriguez is expected to leave the club this summer and therefore, they do not really want to sell Alvaro until the asking price is met.
Morata scored 20 goals in all competitions last season but Zidane mainly used him as an impact substitute. The French manager preferred compatriot Karim Benzema in his starting XI and that might not change even next season because the Les Bleus striker has been brilliant for the club.
In your opinion, should United pay $100million to sign Alvaro Morata?
