On Friday, reports emerged that Real Madrid are planning to activate the £23.6 million buy-back option on Juventus forward Álvaro Morata.
Los Blancos then plan to sell the 23-year-old for a minimum fee of £40 million. Morata has generated a lot of interest in his services and clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are said to be interested.
However, according to the Guardian, Morata prefers a move to United, especially if Jose Mourinho takes charge of the club in the summer.
Ultimately, Real are expected to sell their player to the highest bidder, but he would prefer a move to Premier League rather than Ligue 1.
Morata shares a good working relationship with Mourinho as the Portuguese manager handed him his senior debut during his time at Madrid in 2010.
Back then, he said: “Mourinho could have chosen some other player but he chose me and I’ll be grateful to him for the rest of my life.”
Meanwhile, Chelsea’s incoming manager Antonio Conte is also a fan of the player, having brought him to Juventus in 2014. Arsenal are also in a desperate need of a striker after Danny Welbeck was ruled out for nine months with a knee injury.
