Alvaro Morata’s agent, Juanma Lopez, has been pictured at the Santiago Bernabeu along with the father’s striker as they hope to finalise a decision over his future.
They both arrived to negotiate Morata’s departure, as the great interest is allegedly a move to Manchester United, according to AS.
Real Madrid are hoping for the best possible fee for Morata’s services as they’ve still been happy with his progress, especially because he’s managed to pick up goals without much game time.
The price named was €80 million and with Jose Mourinho allegedly growingly furious with Ed Woodward’s lack of signings this summer, he’ll be hoping to wrap the deal up so Morata can join the squad before the pre-season begins.
He was the second top scorer on the team with 20 goals in only 1,872 minutes, which means he found the back of the net every 93 minutes.
Even though Zinedine Zidane told Morata he’d be in the plans for next season and doesn’t want him to leave, Morata is aiming for a spot in the Spain squad for the World Cup, something he won’t achieve playing behind Karim Benzema.
It seems the transfer is in the final phase as both clubs look to find a deal which benefits both parties.
