United bid for Morata rejected

Real Madrid and Spain global striker Alvaro Morata is top of Manchester United's wish list of signings this summer, say reports.

Manchester United are in advanced talks with Real Madrid over a summer deal for James Rodriguez, according to Metro.

Another sign that points towards Chelsea is the recent dwindling of rumors linking the Blues with Real Madrid striker Álvaro Morata, who was touted for most of the past few months as the alternative big-money striker signing.

It is understood that Los Blancos are holding out for a £78m offer for the Spain worldwide.

Reports in his homeland of Spain suggest Morata would prefer to join Chelsea over Milan, but the Blues are unwilling to match the £61million valuation, while Milan are, which puts the Italians in the box seat.

Long Beach got the overall no. 1 seed and will host the regional and take on San Diego State in the game following UCLA-Texas. No. 4 seed Tennessee Tech, 40-19, has won four-straight games including the OVC Tournament championship.

Morata should fit the bill as he managed to score an impressive 20 goals for Madrid last season despite only starting 16 times in all competitions for the Champions League winners.

That now appears to be the case after this apparent bid, with United also perusing interest in Torino striker Andrea Belotti, who has a €100m release clause in his contract.

Both clubs are also believed to be interested in Everton striker Romelu Lukaku, who would cost significantly more than the newly crowned Champions League victor.

The Telegraph is reporting that Manchester United have identified the Real Madrid striker as the "key signing" they want to make to bring in a successor to Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford this summer.

"I don't know, it doesn't depend only on me", he said when asked about his future.
