Morata’s Agent And Father Hold Showdown Talks With Real Madrid To Finalize Manchester United Move
Real Madrid became the first team to retain the Champions League when they won the title for the second consecutive time last month against Juventus.
This means that they have a settled squad, probably the best in Europe, but Zinedine Zidane, the current manager is still not convinced with the options at his disposal and is looking to add some quality to his first team next season.
This might see a number of first team stars leave the club before the start of the next season and one such player edging close to an exit is Spanish international Alvaro Morata.
Having rejoined Los Blancos a couple of years ago, Morata has been productive in front of goal whenever called upon but has not been able to establish himself in the first team under Zidane in the previous season.

This has seen him linked with an exit with Manchester United the most likely destination.
Real holding out on €90m
The Red Devils are desperate for a striker and are looking to add Morata to their ranks this summer.
Jose Mourinho is desperate for a reunion with the former Juventus star and is ready to do what it takes to land him.
They have already made a bid of €70m which was rejected by the La Liga giants and it is now understood that Morata is also getting desperate.
Reports suggest that the 24-year old has already agreed on terms over a deal with the Red Devils and all that is left is for the clubs to agree on a fee for this move to go through.

The report claims that the duo walked into the Bernabeu at noon and left 50 minutes later.
Morata will hope that these talks will smoothen his move to Old Trafford and will hope that there is no more delay in the deal.
The 24-year old will want to join up with his new teammates before the start of the pre-season at Old Trafford and this will mean that Manchester United should get this deal done before the end of the week when they fly for their first game before the start of the new campaign.
