What will Alvaro Morata give Man Utd or Chelsea?

Manchester United have confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic is leaving the club after naming the striker among their released players.

But while they have leapfrogged Milan and already agreed terms with Morata, United's offer of €70m may not satisfy Madrid, who are demanding €90m, reports Marca.

The Sun are reporting that United have offered £52million for the 24-year-old Spain worldwide but have been been thwarted, with the Champions League winners telling Jose Mourinho to stump up over £78million.

Everton striker Romelu Lukaku was on their radar but the Europa League winners have given up after it looks like the Belgian will return to Chelsea. All these will depend on Jose Mourinho and his tactics.

The former Juventus striker will pen a 5-year-deal at Old Trafford and will cost United a hefty fee of £64m (€73m).

"I want to leave, I have learned very little English; it's really hard, all I learned was "tomorrow, good morning, good afternoon".

The Spain global, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United among others, scored 19 goals in all competitions for Madrid last term, but made just 14 starts in La Liga and played only five minutes across the club's Champions League semifinal and final encounters.

President Trump to face journalists in news conference following explosive Comey testimony
While it's true that Comey admitted leaking a document, it's not at all clear that it crossed any lines, legal or otherwise. Fair to say, the Prez was NOT impressed with what he saw and heard during Comey's Senate Intel Committee hearing.

The 24-year-old will travel to Manchester on Monday to finalise the move.

The 24-year-old's representative Juanma Lopez said the Spain worldwide is keen to secure regular first-team football after struggling to dislodge Karim Benzema as Zinedine Zidane's first choice striker in Madrid.

"Anyone who can come in and help the club win trophies, which is the ultimate aim, they are the players we want to bring in".

Juanma Lopez told Foot Mercato: "He does not want to do a season like this again".

"But it's what you want and what you expect - players to be linked to Manchester United".

Morata has been on top of United's target list for quite sometime now.
