Manchester United have made an approach for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho gave him his first-team debut at the Santiago Bernabeu back in 2010 and is allegedly looking for a reunion in the summer transfer window with the Spaniard.
He is set to bolster his attacking options this summer, especially after Zlatan Ibrahimovic tore his anterior cruciate ligament last month and is set to be sidelined for the next 12 months at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese boss has said to have made contact with Morata’s camp, but the process is still in its early days and a deal could go either way.
He’s reached three Champions League finals in four seasons and is exactly the type of player Mourinho will be looking at this summer as Zlatan is yet to sign a new deal to commit his future at Old Trafford.
He rejoined Madrid on a five-year deal last summer after two seasons at Juventus but won’t be happy with the fact that first-team game time has been hard to come by.
Morata has only started 18 games under Zinedine Zidane but has still managed 20 goals in 40 appearances, something United could do with following their well-documented struggles in front of goal this season.
