Morata reaches agreement with Manchester United, Madrid want a better offer

Today, Alvaro Morata has agreed terms to join Man Utd...

Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli previously denied the Serie A club would move for Morata, who is reportedly a target for Jose Mourinho as he seeks a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Many United fans were left delighted by the news.

As one striker looks set to leave, another could be on the way in as United will make a take-it-or-leave bid of £60m for Real Madrid ace Alvaro Morata, according to the Daily Star.

According to the Telegraph, United have already seen a bid of £52.3m rejected by Real but have made a follow-up offer of £60m in an attempt to prise the 24-year-old - who has already played under the Portuguese during his stint as manager at the Liga champions - away.

De Gea's current deal at United runs until the summer of 2019 and the club will be eager to retain the services of the 26-year-old for the long term.

But despite the 35-year-old's preference to remain at Old Trafford, sources say his name is likely to be on the club's list of released players to be published by the Premier League on Friday.

"He doesn't want to go through another season like that". "He wants to play more. It was a great season, but he wants to play more", said Lopez. This has been a brilliant for Real Madrid who have won many titles.

Jose Mourinho's side moved quickly for Morata after Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann ruled out a move to United last week, after the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) had rejected Atletico's appeal of a transfer ban imposed by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

Mourinho certainly needs to add more goals to his team as they were the lowest scorers in the top seven last season and I think Morata will prove to be an excellent addition.
