Manchester United set to make big money move for Alvaro Morata

Real Madrid star intent on joining Chelsea despite Man United transfer links

Alvaro Morata is looking to join Chelsea this summer

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford, United's best player in the last couple of months of the season, is still just 19 and Antony Martial, who many think will end up as a centre-forward just as Cristiano Ronaldo did, has been too inconsistent.

His agent Juanma Lopez has offered United genuine hope a deal can be struck after admitting Morata has become frustrated at Real.

Manchester United have now turned their attentions to Morata and are confident of striking a deal with the Spanish giants.

His representative, Juanma Lopez, says the Spain worldwide is keen to secure regular first-team football after struggling to dislodge Karim Benzema as the first choice striker in Madrid and will clear up his future in the near future.

He said: "Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role. I have not yet met with representatives from Real Madrid".

"Alvaro plays unbelievably well in the Champions League but it has been more hard for him in Serie A, where it is more tactical", Patrice Evra, his teammate at Juve told me a year ago. And it will be interesting to see who leads United's attack come August.

The Warriors will have exacted their revenge on the Cavaliers, but more importantly, the coronation of Durant will be complete. Everyone complains about him signing with the Warriors, while simultaneously mocking them for losing in 2016.

Alvaro Morata has made a decision to sign for Manchester United from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in Spain. "But I want to fight for my place here, I would be insane to leave Real Madrid".

Lopez said: "He does not want a season like this again. I would like to stay".

Milan's new Chinese owners had reportedly been targeting Morata as a signature signing for their new regime, but the former Juventus striker sounded less keen on the idea.

Morata started his career with Real before leaving for Juventus in 2014 for £18m.

Morata has struggled for game time under Zinedine Zidane but has still managed to attract interest from across Europe.
