MANCHESTER UNITED are close to completing the £60million transfer of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

SunSport understands that details on a four-year contract are being finalised to land the 24-year-old Spaniard.

United are desperate for a new striker after Zlatan Ibrahimovic was not retained on yesterday’s list put out by the club.

They had offered him the chance to stay on for another year but he did not think it was right to take the money while he was undergoing rehabilitation.

As it is the club have left the facilities at the Carrington training ground open to him as he comes back from his knee ligament injury.

The injury saw United change their approach from getting No10 Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid to landing and out and out striker.

United had been interested in Romelu Lukaku but the Everton striker looks set on a return to Chelsea.

“The player will take a clear and definitive decision in the coming days. I have not yet met with the representatives from Real Madrid.

“Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role. He wants to play more. Which is normal for an attacker who has scored 19 goals. It is too little.”
