Real Madrid reject Manchester United's bid for striker Alvaro Morata

UNITED have reportedly lodged a bid for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata.

While the Champions League holders value the striker at nearer £80m the Express are citing a report coming from Spanish outlet Marca that claims Morata has now chose to join United following a personal phonecall with Mourinho.

Manchester United had been close to acquiring the services of Atletico Madrid's French striker Antoine Griezmann, but the player refused to move after the Madrid based club was banned from any transfer activity.

Or, maybe, they're setting the price bar unrealistically high for Real Madrid, so if they sell Morata and James for less than a combined €155m it can be deemed as failure.

A deal for Morata would back up the news that United have already agreed a deal to sign Benfica defender Victor Lindelof, with the Swede set to arrive in a deal worth in excess of £30m.

With the World Cup in Russian Federation to take place next summer, Morata's chances of playing for Spain would surely be boosted if he was stepping out for United each week rather than sitting on Madrid's bench.

Sophos Group (LON:SOPH) Analyst Target Changes
As stated in the DC-based SEC public form filed on 12/06/2017, James sold 384 shares based on an average price-per-share of $36.0. Financial Bank Of America De holds 0% or 20,371 shares in its portfolio. 51,266 are held by Deutsche Bancorporation Ag.

But now Catalan newspaper Sport claim that Antonio Conte has made one final push to sign Morata ahead of rival boss Jose Mourinho.

A move for Werder Bremen's Max Kruse has also been mooted, while Everton's Romelu Lukaku remains a top target for Mourinho.

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.

Bale's game time this season has been disrupted by injury and his meagre goal return, just seven goals in 19 league games, has seen him linked with moves away from the Spanish club.

So when the Spaniard arrives, even though it is clear he is the favorite, he might have to compete for the striker position with Marcus Rashford, or partner with him upfront for Manchester United.
