According to reports, Real Madrid are not in a hurry and aren’t desperate to sell Alvaro Morata. However, the club have made it clear that any other side interested in the signature of the highly sought after forward must meet the asking price of the player.
A note of advice has also been issued to interested parties that Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane are interested in keeping the player and therefore the decision is bound to affect the price of the player.
Real Madrid are actually satisfied with Morata’s efforts from the 2016/2017 football season and want him to continue at the club. According to reports, the club is believed to have stated the following:
“If someone wants to take Morata, let them pay”. The price slapped on the player is a whopping 90 million Euros and there is no indication that the price will be lowered.
Reports also suggest that a possible move and eventual signing of Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe may happen irrespective of whether Morata stays or leaves. Jose Mourinho is interested in Morata and intends to use him as reinforcement in Manchester United’s attack, and Real Madrid believe that the Red Devils can put their money where their mouth is.
Madrid have also made it clear that there is no chance that they would settle for the first offer that is made for their striker, as they may not consider any deals till August 31, which the club believes is a long enough period for negotiations with the English club.
Morata’s valuation of 90 million Euros must be met, or at least a sum very close to the stipulated amount. There are whispers that the reported interest in Morata from Man United may see Real Madrid insist that Spanish Goal Keeper Da Gea be included in the deal, as they have expressed their desire to acquire the services of the player for years now
