Alvaro Morata’s agent, Juanma Lopez, has admitted that the striker’s future lies in Real Madrid’s hands following claims that Manchester United have lodged a £60m+ bid.

Lopez won’t comment on how close Morata is to a move to United after Jose Mourinho’s club reportedly made a bid thought to be over £60m. However, he’s made it clear that the decision is now down to Real.

“They are a club with great glamour, [they are] a very interesting option,” Lopez told Calciomercato [via Marca].

“I can say that their proposal is a very, very important one and now the decision rests with Real.

“I cannot say [how close it is]. We will see.”

Arsenal were previously rumoured to have made an offer of £50m back in May but Real Madrid are apparently hoping for a figure closer to £70m. Far higher than what it seems Arsene Wenger is willing to pay.

Morata has struggled for game time since his switch from Juventus to boyhood club, Real, last year, only playing for 1,331 minutes in La Liga.

Despite this, the 24-year-old still scored 15 goals and assisted five in his 26 often short appearances.

With four years left on his current deal, it’s not really that surprising that Real want so much for him.

AC Milan and Chelsea have also both been linked with Morata recently.
