José Mourinho wants to sign Álvaro Morata for his Manchester United team and is willing to offer around €60 million for the Spanish attacker, according to Marca.

Real Madrid will be able to buy Morata back from Juventus for €32 million if they submit that offer before July 15th, although the player has said publicly that he wants his future solved as soon as possible.

If Madrid buy Morata back and then accept United's offer, they would make close to €30 million of profit that could be use to improve the squad.

Morata would be a fine backup for Karim Benzema but he wants to play relevant minutes, something that would not be certain in the Spanish capital while Benzema stays on the squad. While Morata is a fine attacker and one that could still improve, Madrid don't think he's worth €60 million and that's why they will accept United's offer if the red devils finally decide to make a move.
