Man Utd interested in Morata

Manchester United are said to be keen to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata at the end of the season.

United are the latest Premier League club to be interested in Morata, Marca notes, after Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur both tried to sign the forward last summer.

Madrid are thought to be aware in the interest of the Premier League champions and accept Morata could push to leave Santiago Bernabeu this summer, but want to give the player more minutes in an attempt to keep him happy.

Part of the reason Madrid would be willing to let Morata go this summer, however, is that his contract ends in 2015.

Madrid expect United to make the best offer of any of the interested parties but will leave Morata to decide his own future.
