Manchester United: Morata on verge of Premier League move
Real Madrid's Álvaro Morata is nearing a transfer to United, with the two clubs still to reach a final agreement over a fee for the 24-year-oldChelsea - Barcelona U - 19 live: UEFA Youth League final
Real Madrid's Álvaro Morata is very close to signing for Manchester United, with talks now back underway after being put on hold for the striker's recent wedding.
Real Madrid want more than the 70m on offer
All that is missing is the green light from Real, who have a 70-million-euro offer on the table but are holding out for between 80 and 90 million.
Real have put forward several arguments for demanding a higher fee, underlining Morata's status as a regular Spain international, in addition to the fact that, at just 24 years old, he still has the bulk of his career ahead of him.
The LaLiga and Champions League winners are also at pains to point out the scarcity of centre-forwards of Morata's calibre currently on the market.
Morata set on summer Real departure
Real youth product Morata, who returned to the Bernabéu last summer after two years at Juventus, has made his mind up to leave after a season that saw him struggle for game time despite posting an excellent goal return.
In total, he scored 20 times in 1,870 minutes of first-team action in 2016/17 (spread out over 43 appearances) - a strike rate equivalent to a goal every 94 minutes.
