Real Madrid have received a €60 million offer from Manchester United for striker Alvaro Morata. Although the Red Devils appeared to have set James Rodriguez as their priority this summer, coach Jose Mourinho wants to sign a striker and Morata might be the man for the job.

Alvaro Morata wants to be a starter and he knows he won't get that kind of role with Real Madrid, where Karim Benzema is the undisputed starter. He had a good offer to return to the Serie A and play for AC Milan but it seems that the Premier League is also an appropriate destination for the attacker. Chelsea's manager Antonio Conte could also make a move for Morata if the London-based club can't sign Romelu Lukaku.

Real Madrid would like to sell Morata for no less than €75 million, although they have not received such offer just yet, so Los Blancos might wait a bit longer.
