The Real Madrid striker, who recently got married in Venice, seem to have cut his honeymoon short this week to have conversations with Real president Florentino Perez.
And now, the Daily Express reports “those talks have helped to speed up negotiations between the two clubs” with Real set to accept a figure of around £60million for the 24-year-old rather than the £70million they were holding out for.
Morata is hoping that a regular first-team football will help him reassert himself as Spain’s No.9 at the World Cup next summer.
The report also claims Jose Mourinho has made it vividly clear he wants Morata to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic and he wants the forward to become United’s focal point after convincing the player he is “ideally suited for English football”.
Cadena Ser’s El Larguero show reported two week’s ago that an agreement between both clubs and the player was “very close”.
United were believed to have offered Morata a four or five-year contract to replace the departed Ibrahimovic, who was not offered a new deal after injuring his cruciate knee injury.
