Milan close to Morata — Gazzetta

"It looks tough to see Alvaro Morata in a Red Devils shirt with the arrival of Romelu", he told Cadena Cope.

United have several options of suggesting a deal with Real that involves a straight exchange for star midfielder Toni Kroos, or even a large amount of money that can see the records broken for a transfer of a goalkeeper.

"Many names have been mentioned of very strong strikers", Fassone said to Milan TV.

The Italian is eager to add the 24-year-old to his squad although the two clubs are yet to reach a financial agreement.

Jose Mourinho says 'the door is still open' for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to play again for Manchester United this coming season.

Strangely, Mourinho used Sanchez's name in response to a question about Morata, whose name sounds nothing like that of the Arsenal forward who has been linked with a move away from the Emirates all summer.

After Manchester United abandoned their interest in the Spaniard to snap up Romelu Lukaku from Everton, Chelsea entered the negotiations with Real Madrid for Morata.

As a result, they are demanding Kroos as part of any possible deal that sees De Gea leave Old Trafford.

The report claims Morata, born and bred in Madrid, will move for around £61m and will then pocket a £170,000-a-week salary.

Lukaku scored 25 times in the Premier League last season, and laid on another six assists, to narrowly miss out on the Golden Boot, while Morata only notched 15 league goals.

It's added by Gazzetta that the Bavarian giants paid €60m for the Portuguese international last summer off the back of his impressive performances at Euro 2016, as well as for Benfica prior to that.
