Alvaro Morata and his agent Juanma Lopez told Real Madrid's CEO Jose Angel Sanchez that the attacker wants to leave the club this summer in order to be a starter elsewhere, sources told Managing Madrid.

Manchester United have sent a €60 million offer for Morata but Real Madrid rejected it, so the British club will have to reach at least €70 million for Madrid to consider letting the attacker go.

Apparently, Los Blancos want more than €75 million, although they know that they might be forced to settle for around those €70 million mentioned above. Morata is a canterano and Madrid will not block his departure if United send a decent offer.

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho was high on Morata's potential when he was with Real Madrid, even though the striker was still a raw prospect back then. He gave him minutes with the first team and now he wants Morata to lead United's offensive line in what will be their return to Champions League football.
