Manchester United's bid for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata rejected

Morata's agent Juanma Lopez recently confirmed United had made an offer and it is now up to Madrid to decide whether to accept or not.

It has been suggested that Manchester United are close to agreeing a €73m fee with Real Madrid for Morata and the player is expected to arrive in England next week to complete the move.

The 24-year-old rejoined the La Liga champions from Juventus last summer but started just 19 games.

The England worldwide has been strongly linked with Mourinho's side on several occasions over the past few seasons, but nothing concrete has ever come of it.

Real are looking to recoup more than four times the £15.8m they paid Juventus a year ago but Morata's pedigree in front of goal makes him an ideal potential signing.

All these will depend on Jose Mourinho and his tactics.

Real Madrid and Manchester United will play this summer the European Supercup on the 8th of August.

Morata has been a part of the Real Madrid senior team since 2010 but he has not been able to break into the first team and even spent two seasons on loan at Juventus before returning to the club previous year.

Morata looks set for a summer transfer to Manchester United.

Sergio Ramos, the charismatic Los Blancos captain insists that he wishes Morata the best for the future, and that any decision to leave the club rests exclusively on the shoulders of the player himself.

"Will he stay? I don't know, it was a brilliant season for Real Madrid who won a lot of titles". A proposal of €70m from Old Trafford "does not satisfy" Real Madrid, according to Sport, so Conte has nudged Roman Abramovich to try and get both players.

He is understood to have informed Madrid's general director, Jose Angel Sanchez, that the player who scored 20 goals in all competitions last season has chose to leave the club in search of regular first-team football.
