Woodward is wary Bernabeu chiefs will demand an unrealistic price because of United’s refusal to sell them David De Gea – and will make it clear £60m is his final offer.

Morata has admitted he doesn’t want to leave the European champions and would prefer to stay and fight for his place.

But he knows he might have no option but to find a new club to keep alive his chances of being involved in the 2018 World Cup with Spain in Russia.

His agent Juanma Lopez has offered United genuine hope a deal can be struck after admitting Morata has become frustrated at Real.

Lopez said: “He does not want a season like this again. It was a great season, but he wants to play more.
“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.”
Morata said earlier this week: “I want to be playing and to be important to the squad, particularly next year when there is the World Cup.
“But I want to fight for my place here, I would be crazy to leave Real Madrid. I would like to stay.”
Mourinho is desperate to sign a new No.9 and has told Woodward to get him Morata. United are willing to offer the 24-year-old a long term deal worth around £225,000-a-week.
Morata started his career with Real before leaving for Juventus in 2014 for £18m.He won the domestic double with the Italian champions in both his seasons in Turin before re-joining Real in a £26m deal, but he has struggled to hold a down a regular starting place in Zinedine Zidane’s side this season.SOURCE: dailystar.co.uk
