Alvaro Morata could become a Manchester United player at the end of today, according to reports in Spain.

Talks between Real Madrid and United are said to have reached an advanced stage, but not before the Spanish champions reportedly rejected a £70million bid for the Spanish striker on Wednesday, forcing the Red Devils to increase their offer by £5m.

Real president Florentino Perez had been holding out for £80m, but could be willing to meet in the middle as United seek to find a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has left the club after his contract expired.

And Spanish newspaper Marca reported overnight that the offer for Morata could be accepted ‘in the next few hours’.

Morata is said to be desperate to move to Old Trafford, where he knows he will be first choice.

The striker, 24, scored 20 goals last season as Zinedine Zidane’s team won the Spanish title and the Champions League – but Morata started just 18 matches.
