Alvaro Morata is expected to become a Manchester United player by tomorrow.
United made the Real Madrid striker their No.1 priority this summer after missing out on Antoine Griezmann.
There has been stiff competition from AC Milan but United are finally set to land their man.
United are reported to have made a £60million offer for Morata — £10m short of the La Liga champions’ valuation of the striker – but the final fee is expected to be ironed out today.
Morata, 24, has struggled for games at Real, starting just 14 in La Liga last season.
He was also only used as a late substitute as Real ran out 4-1 winners over Juventus in the Champions League final.
The forward was apparently under the impression he would be a first-team regular when Real forked out £25m to bring him back to the Bernabeu last summer from Juventus.
But Jose Mourinho has reportedly told him he will be one of the main men at Old Trafford if he joins next season.
He is said to have called Morata’s agent and told him his player “will be important”.
And the Spaniard’s international team-mates David De Gea and Ander Herrera have also been trying to convince him to join them at Old Trafford, giving Mourinho further hope of landing his man.
