According to the Catalan newspaper, Chelsea would offer €75m for Morata, and €80m for James, which is pretty much dream-come-true territory for Real Madrid.

United have been linked with the 24-year-old after cooling their interest in Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann.

After announcing they had agreed a fee with Benfica for Victor Lindelof on Saturday evening, Manchester United fans are eagerly awaiting news of Alvaro Morata.

And not only does he intend to move to the Premier League, the Spain global wants Real Madrid teammate Gareth Bale to join him at the Red Devils, according to Spanish publication Don Balon.

It was reported yesterday that United would turn their attentions to Torino striker Andrea Belotti if the Morata deal fell through.

Morata is a fine player but Kane is genuinely world-class.

The Welshman was even left on the bench for the UEFA Champions League final against Juventus, along with Alvaro Morata, although both were brought on by Zinedine Zidane.

Milan's new Chinese owners had reportedly been targeting Morata as a signature signing for their new regime, but the former Juventus striker sounded less keen on the idea.

Despite getting only 14 starts, Morata recorded 15 goals which goes to show the kind of power he commands in the attack. I do not know (if he will have another season at Madrid).

As revealed by Telegraph Sport in April, United have made Morata their top target to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic and are close to clinching his signature. This has been a brilliant for Real Madrid who have won many titles. The player will make a clear and definitive decision in the next few days. "Quite simply, Real Madrid considered the Rossoneri's offer to be unsatisfactory".
