Man Utd Transfer News Jose Mourinho set to ditch Andrea Belotti deal

Álvaro Morata has agreed terms with Manchester United and must now wait for the Premier League club to reach a deal with Real Madrid, according to reports.

United have been linked with the 24-year-old after cooling their interest in Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann.

Lopez told www.calciomercato.com of United: "It's a club with a lot of charm, a very interesting option".

AC Milan were also interested in Morata, with Lopez revealing their offer simply fell short before they instead opted to sign Porto striker Andre Silva.

I can say that their offer is a very, very important one and now the decision goes to Real.

When pressed about a deal being completed, Lopez pumped the breaks a bit, saying: "I can not say - we will see".

Man United have offered 70 million euros for Morata, but Madrid are holding out for 90 million.

On Milan's interest, Morata's agent said: "Yes, there was frequent contact with us until a few days ago - I can confirm that". In addition to this, the attacker held talks with his compatriots Ander Herrera and David de Gea to know their views on the 20-time English champions.

But that is not all - as with any major football star there is other money to be made in the form of image rights, which will see him earn £1.7m per year on top of his base wage.
