Alvaro Morata would reportedly prefer a move to Chelsea over AC Milan, but the Blues are struggling to agree a fee with Real Madrid.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has ruled out a move to AC Milan while rumours about a move to Man Utd & Chelsea continue.

And Rashford is fully behind the club's apparent pursuit of Morata, believing that the Red Devils need to bring in top players to help their push for trophies.

More recently, renowned Italian football journalist Tancredi Palmeri also tweeted that the Old Trafford club have contacted the Los Blancos to inquire about signing the 24-year-old striker.

The Spain global wants more playing time than he is now receiving at the Bernabeu, but the club won't let him leave cheap.

Morata has been one of the most sought after players in recent summers, largely due to his clinical presence inside the area, with the Spaniard contributing 20 goals in a bit-part role last term.

After two seasons in Italy, Real exercised the buy-back option on his contract last summer, paying £26m for Morata.

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a goal-getting attacker owing to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's cruciate ligament injury that he suffered at the tail-end of the 2016/2017 campaign.

According to Sky Italia, United did not include goalkeeper David de Gea in their offer but the Champions League champions want closer to £78m for the forward.

A wage of about €6.5-7 million have already been agreed with the player and now the club has to convince Real Madrid's hierarchy to sell the player for their €60m valuation.

Moreover, he only started 14 times in the League.
