AC Milan Closing The Transfer Net Around Chelsea Target

"Yes, we have had interest, that is obvious and it's public".

Where will Alvaro Morata be playing next season?

Manchester United seem relaxed about the speculation linking their supreme goalkeeper David De Gea with a move to Real Madrid, with reports claiming the Spanish Champions could be back with a bid.

'La Gazzetta dello Sport' goes further in their reporting and says that the Spanish forward is just "a step" away from joining the Milanese club.

Ander Herrera has spoken of his disappointment at Manchester United's failure to wrap up a deal for countryman Alvaro Morata, having assumed they would be teammates next season.

Another player that Milan were closely linked to is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the striker's club, Borussia Dortmund, have told him to get any move sorted this week.

De Gea, meanwhile, was on the verge of making the opposite move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 before the transfer collapsed on deadline day after paperwork failed to arrive at La Liga headquarters in time.

However, Mata is confident that his compatriot will snub the overtures of Real Madrid to remain at Old Trafford.

Since Zidane often plays Isco in midfield, when one of Benzema, Bale and Cristiano are unavailable.

Whilst Real Madrid accepted a two-year loan and relatively cheap departure for James Rodriguez, they are holding out for 80 million euros for Morata.

It had been widely reported earlier in the transfer window that Morata was United's first choice target to replace the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic but a dramatic volte-face earlier this month saw the Red Devils swoop for Romelu Lukaku from under Chelsea's noses.

Speaking after that game, Herrera admitted he had expected to be supplying Morata - who is also in LA with Real for their own pre-season tour - rather than Lukaku.
