Alvaro Morata's future could be decided this week, with Manchester United ready to battle it out with AC Milan for the Real Madrid striker.

After gaining a Champions League winners medal - it seemed like it would be the ideal final chapter in Alvaro Morata's Real Madrid career.

The Red Devils are expected to lose Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Wayne Rooney in the upcoming transfer window, which will leave the Old Trafford side light in the attacking department.

It's believed the bid is well short of the rumoured £78m that the Spanish and European champions want for the 24-year-old.

It is understood that United goalkeeper David De Gea was not part of this offer, contrary to widespread reports that he was going to be sold for £22M and Morata.

Could Alvaro Morata celebrating the Champions League win be his last success with Real Madrid?

After two seasons in Italy, Real exercised the buy-back option on his contract last summer, paying £26m for Morata.

Morata was said to be closing in on a move to Milan after agreeing personal terms, but he has denied these reports and insists that it is his intention to remain at the Bernabeu. "Good competition is important if you want to be successful".

In fact, Morata has now moved on to the AC Milan and Manchester United rumor mills, with the latter supposedly making a €60m bid for him recently.

Conte has just led the Blues to their fifth Premier League title but he needs to strengthen his squad ahead of their return to the Champions League and he knows Morata well from their time together in Turin.
