Mou personally calls Morata

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made a personal call to Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, according to reports in Spain.

Cadena Ser report the United boss is aware the Spanish international has made up his mind on departing the Bernabeu this summer, despite only returning to the club last summer from Italian champions Juventus.

United’s need for further striking options has increased since Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury, with the club linked to a number of stars including Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann and Monaco’s teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe.

The report was unclear on whether or not David De Gea will be involved in negotiations after increased speculation that the Spanish international goalkeeper wants a move back to Madrid.
