Alvaro Morata’s agent has revealed that Manchester United has made a “very important offer” for his client, according to reports.
Jose Mourinho gave United’s CEO Ed Woodward a list of players he wanted the club to sign this summer, with a striker likely to be high on the list after releasing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Real Madrid forward Morata, 24, looks to be United’s main target after it lodged a bid that his agent, Juanma Lopez, said would leave Real with a decision to make, according to the Daily Mail.
Lopez, the reports says, also confirmed that Italian giant AC Milan had also made attempts to sign the Spanish striker but the offer was “unsatisfactory.”
He said of United: “It’s a club with a lot of charm, a very interesting option.
“I can say that there’s a very important offer and the decision now rests with Real. I cannot tell [if an agreement is close], we’ll see.”

United confirmed its first major signing of the summer on Saturday when Victor Lindelof joined for £31 million (about $39 million) from Benfica.
Morata would become the second major signing, likely to take United’s summer spending over £100 million with Real valuing him at £70 million (about $89 million).
But Torino forward Andrea Belotti, 23, is also reportedly among the strikers Mourinho has considered as Ibrahimovic’s replacement.
