Alvaro Morata's agent reveals a 'very important offer' from Manchester United

However, Real Madrid are digging the trenches for a long round of negotiations and have made it clear that Manchester United will have to pay €90m to secure the striker's signature.

Jose Mourinho handed Morata his debut at the Bernabeu, while United have completed a deal for Benfica defender Victor Lindelof with Inter winger Ivan Perisic also reportedly set to join the Europa League holders.

The agent of Alvaro Morata, Juanma Lopez, confirmed that United have offered his client.

Manchester United are believed to have shelved out £30.7m for the Swedish worldwide, with Jose Mourinho a long-term admirer of the 22-year-old.

Meanwhile, COPE also report that Jose Mourinho has been calling Morata "on an nearly daily basis" to convince him to join and reassure him as the move continues to stall.

Speaking to Italian online publication Calciomercato, via Sky Sports, he said of United: "It's a club with a lot charm - a very interesting option".

"I can say that their proposal is a very, very important one and now the decision rests with Real". I can not tell (if an agreement is close).

James has really struggled to fit into Zinedine Zidane's team in recent months, and was altogether left out of the Champions League Final squad, a match Los Blancos won comfortably against Juventus, 4-1.

United appear to be front-runners for Morata's signature and the forward would surely boost Mourinho's attack having netted 22 times last season in all competitions.
