A week back there were news that Morata had already agreed personal terms with Manchester United, with the clubs trying to finalize a price.
While the clubs still haven’t agreed a fee, the Daily Mirror claim that the player could make the move to Old Trafford early next week.
United saw their initial £52m offer rejected as Real wanted £78m. The Red Devil’s returned with a £60m with the deal most likely being worth around £65m.
He began his career at Real Madrid, making his debut with the senior team in late 2010 and going on to appear in 52 official games (11 goals), notably winning the 2014 Champions League. He moved to Juventus for €20 million in 2014, winning the domestic double of Serie A and Coppa Italia in both of his seasons before being bought back for €30 million.
Morata earned 34 caps for Spain at youth level, helping the country win the 2013 European Under-21 Championship. He made his senior debut in 2014, representing the nation at the Euro 2016.
Reports in Spain claim that Morata could complete a medical this weekend with the transfer to be announced as early as Monday.
The transfer market doesn’t officially open until 1st July, but once the deal for Morata is complete, United will have already spent a staggering £96m following the signing of Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
It is believed that Jose Mourinho has also instructed Ed Woodward to sign a new central midfielder and a creative winger.
