Real Madrid: Alvaro Morata Manchester United transfer agreement is 'not true'

Another twist in the ongoing transfer saga linking Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata with a move to Man United.

Real Madrid are believed to be holding out for a bid in excess of €80m before they sanction Morata's move to United, with the player keen to make the move to Old Trafford.

Madrid chief Perez says that as far as he knew there had been no formal talks with United about a fee and some of the media reports he had seen were false. "I have read that we have reached an agreement for certain millions but nothing of this is true".

Morata, previously a target for Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, is widely reported to have agreed personal terms on a big-money move to lead Jose Mourinho's United attack.

The Spanish worldwide managed to start just 16 games last season with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema ahead of him in the pecking order so it's no wonder Morata has been looking to leave in search of first team football ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Former Real Madrid coach Vicente del Bosque, who also managed the Spain national team, believes it will be a "pity" if Morata leaves Spanish football but that it could benefit the player himself.

"How I am going to devalue one of the best players in the world as James".

'We have to match the interests of the players with ours, but mostly those of Madrid'.
