Alvaro Morata's agent suggests Manchester United transfer is close

In their report AS said that Morata looked closer to Manchester United, but James could be a real possibility at €70-80m.

The 24-year-old star only started 19 games in all competitions for the European Champions last season and still managed to directly contribute in no fewer than 26 goals (20 goals and 6 assists).

On Monday, AS have revealed why Morata is leaving Real Madrid this summer, and is all but certain to sign for Manchester United.

Morata has won two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles and was part of a run to the 2015 Champions League final, scoring as Juventus lost 1-3 to Barcelona in his two seasons with the record Serie A champions.

"I want to leave, I have learned very little English; it's really hard, all I learned was "tomorrow, good morning, good afternoon".

Manchester United are looking for their second signing of the summer after the Red Devils concluded a deal to bring in defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica on Saturday.

Manchester United were in for Bale when he made a decision to leave Spurs back in 2013 - but were blown out of the water by Real Madrid's £86m offer.

Chelsea were reportedly interested in Morata but with a deal likely struck with Everton forward Romelu Lukaku, United will not have to engage in a bidding war.

After confirmation that last season's top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not be offered a new contract at Old Trafford, United have acted quickly to secure his replacement and have offered around €70 million for the 24-year-old Spain worldwide. The motivations for the move are clear as he will be given a regular place in the first team of a big club, which will be important in a World Cup year.

On-going rumours that Alvaro Morata is going to Old Trafford have escalated as The Telegraph are reporting that the Spaniard has agreed on principle terms with the club and is now awaiting Real Madrid to negotiate terms. He wants to play more.

Although it would seem like Perez is hoping for a lot to get almost £80m for a striker who has managed just 15 league goals this season, he may not be going to mad.

Mourinho is reportedly set to offer him something Real can not - a starring role.
