Manchester United are closing in on signing Alvaro Morata.

United are offering $76.5 million (£60 million) to Real Madrid for Morata though they want a fee that approaches £80 million.

Morata's has informed Real Madrid he is seeking an exit after playing sparingly.

“Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role,” Juanma López told Foot Mercato on Thursday. “He wants to play more. Which is normal for an attacker who has scored 19 goals.”
