Real Madrid are not in a hurry, though.

Real Madrid are enjoying a fairly quiet summer in terms of offers received so far, as president Florentino Perez said last week that the club had not received a single bid for players like Alvaro Morata, James Rodriguez or Cristiano Ronaldo, all rumored to be on their way out of the Spanish capital.

Morata, however, wants to become a Manchester United player next week and would like the British club to submit their bid soon enough so that his future for next season is clear. Still, Madrid want at least €80 million to let the Spanish attacker go and United are only willing to offer €70 million so far.

The striker doesn't want to force his way out, so his agent Juanma Lopez is trying to convince United of submitting a good offer which clears Morata's path to the Premier League as soon as possible. Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane tried to talk Morata into staying with Madrid but the attacker still wants a more relevant role than what Zidane can offer him at Real Madrid.
