Morata close to finalising Real Madrid exit; trio placed on alert

17 July, 2017, 16:30 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois was a target as well, but the Blues are just not interested in parting ways with their number one goalkeeper.

Lukaku scored 25 times in the Premier League last season, and laid on another six assists, to narrowly miss out on the Golden Boot, while Morata only notched 15 league goals.

United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that his side's pursuit of Morata, 24, was over after Real Madrid rejected offers for the striker, seemingly hinting that he considered signing both the Spanish global and Lukaku this summer.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has revealed that Alvaro Morata was "really close" to joining him at Old Trafford this summer.

The German global has become one of the best central midfielders in the world since joining Madrid from Bayern Munich in 2014, and Mourinho has made no secret of his admiration for the 27-year-old.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milan are "on the verge" of a deal for Alvaro Morata, offering €70m to Real Madrid and €10m per year wages.

Among the key summer recruits of Milan are Leonardo Bonucci, Lucas Biglia, Franck Kessie, Andrea Conti, Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez and Hakan Calhanoglu. "Even Real Madrid and Manchester United confirmed that there were negotiations".

It now looks like Kroos and De Gea could swap clubs this summer, with Real Madrid reigniting their interest in bringing the 26-year-old back to the Spanish capital.

"There were complications between the Champions League Final and the emergence of other teams, and the track cooled down".

And that is said to have left Morata facing the prospect of staying put.

Speaking after that game, Herrera admitted he had expected to be supplying Morata - who is also in LA with Real for their own pre-season tour - rather than Lukaku.
