Real Madrid back-up striker, Alvaro Morata has told Real Madrid hierarchy of his desires to sign for Manchester United.
According to reports, the player’s agent Juanma Lopez has met with Jose Angel Sanchez on Friday to inform the club’s hierarchy of the striker’s desire to leave.
All that remains now is for the directors of the English team to negotiate a transfer fee with their Spanish counterparts.
According to The Telegraph, the player has already agreed personal terms with the Premier League club, who are prepared to bid 70 million euros, although Real Madrid are hoping for 90m euros.
The 24-year-old found the back of the net 19 times in 43 appearances last season and Zinedine Zidane was keen for him to stay, but the player wants more regular playing time, especially in a World Cup year.
The 24-year-old is hoping for first-team football next season with the view of getting in Spain’s starting lineup at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Morata was restricted to appearances from the bench in Madrid last season, with manager Zinedine Zidane often opting for Karim Benzema despite the Frenchman’s poor campaign by his standards.
The younger forward made 43 appearances in all competitions but spent just 1,872 minutes on the pitch, an average of 44 minutes per outing scoring 20 goals and creating six assists.
“He doesn’t want to experience another season like that,” his agent Lopez has said.
“It was a great season, but he wants to play more.
“As such, he hopes to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic at United and reunite with Jose Mourinho, who was in charge at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu when he was first graduating from the youth team.
