MANCHESTER UNITED will complete the signing of Alvaro Morata this week, according to reports.
SunSport told you earlier this month the Red Devils were close to completing the £60million transfer of the Real Madrid striker.
And Marca reports it is just a matter of days until Morata, 24, is confirmed as a United player.
He spent last weekend on his honeymoon with wife Alice Campello but is expected to immediately settle his future when he returns.
The move will prove a shining success for the Red Devils as Chelsea are also chasing the Spain international.
Though the Blues will now be more free to pursue Everton star Romelu Lukaku, who Mourinho had also been linked with.

Mourinho has had to rethink his summer targets after Ibrahimovic’s injury and Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban – resulting in a new deal for Antoine Griezmann.
Morata’s transfer opens the door for Real to sign Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe, 18, is set to be offered a stunning 900 PER CENT pay rise by the Ligue 1 champions, though Los Blancos reckon they can lure him to the Bernabeu.
The France starlet is concerned he will not be given enough game time in Madrid but Florentino Perez has moved to reassure him how significant a role he would play at the club.
Morata will become United’s second summer transfer following their £31m capture of Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
Meanwhile, Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is said to have agreed personal terms with United ahead of a stunning £40m move.
