Angry Morata refuses Zidane's hand after being substituted

Deportes Cuatro and Jugones broadcast images showing an incredibly unhappy Alvaro Morata leaving the field in what could be his last game at the Bernabéu.

The look on Álvaro Morata's face as he trudged off the pitch in last night's meeting with Sevilla was a picture of anger, frustration and resentment. Zidane brought Morata off on 61 minutes, replacing him with Lucas Vázquez. Spanish broadcasters Deportes Cuatro and Jugones showed images of the player leaving the field from an angle where the Real Madrid player's resignation is quite clear to see.

Now, with the possibility that Diego Costa could accept a move to China, Morata is the Italian coach's choice to fill the vacancy in attack. But in recent weeks Manchester United's interest has been aroused according to El Larguero. José Mourinho has let Morata's inner circle know that there would be a place for him at Old Trafford next season which has put United in pole position to land the Spain international. If Morata does decide to join Manchester United, James Rodríguez could join him, according to Colombia's Canal RCN, who claim the player has already reached a verbal agreement with United for 2017-18...
