Álvaro Morata on verge of signing for AC Milan

"We are speaking, exchanging ideas, and again it is in the hands of Mr (Ed) Woodward and Zlatan's agent, but it's important the final decision is with the player".

"Of course I wanted to have Morata as a team-mate, he was very close because the two clubs negotiated", said Herrera.

The Spanish striker is destined to leave Stamford Bridge this summer after he went public with a text message row he had with the Italian manager.

Morata has been linked with a list of clubs this summer, but seemed destined to join Manchester United.

The 35-year-old sustained "significant knee ligament damage" during United's 2-1 Europa League win over Anderlecht in April, which required surgery and brought an end to his season at Old Trafford.

And just weeks after Madrid told United they were ending their interest in the Spaniard, Zinedine Zidane's side launched a plot to unsettle the keeper with a new £50million offer.

"Even the champions need to if they're to repeat what they did last season".

Milan have made nine signings already this summer - with Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci soon to become the 10th - but they remain determined to strengthen their attack.

"Evidently we are still thinking of doing something in that position".

But Mourinho is ready to counteract their offer by requesting that Kroos is involved if any deal is to be completed according to the Mirror. We have not come to an economic agreement, that is obvious as well.

Ibrahimovic, who had scored 28 goals for United, has since seen his one-year deal expire and Mourinho has confirmed that talks will continue over a possible return around Christmas time.
