Manchester United are hopeful of announcing £60million deal for Alvaro Morata as their second summer signing this Thursday, according to reports.
The Spaniard who boast of 2-time Champions League has emerged as prime target for Jose Mourinho this summer after losing our on Atletico Madrid’s and France international Antoine Griezmann.
The Red Devils had also allowed Zlatan Ibrahimovic out of the club and if reports are anything to go by, the retired Swedish international who is currently recovering from knee ligament damage, became a free agent on Saturday after his deal at Old Trafford expired.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has seemingly confirmed his Manchester United exit after one season at the club, stating “I came. I said. I conquered” in a recent social media post.
The stumbling block could come from Real Madrid’s demands for a figure closer to £80m, well above United’s valuation, according to the Sun.
Morata cut short his honeymoon to fly back to Madrid and help the move progress.
And on Monday his father Alfonso and agent Juanma Lopez were pictured arriving at the Bernabeu for discussions about the switch to Old Trafford.
If the deal is completed by Thursday, Morata will fly out to America to join up with his new team-mates at the club’s summer training base in Los Angeles.
