Man Utd's Morata bid rejected as Real Madrid demand €90m

Manchester United have failed in their latest attempt to sign Alvaro Morata with Real Madrid holding out for €90m (£79m) for the striker, as per reports.

The Red Devils have made the Spain international their number one target as they seek to strengthen their striking department ahead of the 2017/18 season.

United have been in lengthy talks with Real over a deal, with manager Jose Mourinho keen to land Morata, 24, for the beginning of the club's pre-season tour of the United States next week.

However, although United have increased their offer from €70m (£61.5m) to €80m (£70.2m), Real have rejected the bid as they look to make a significant profit on Morata.

Morata, who scored 20 goals in all competitions mostly from the bench as Real lifted both La Liga and the Champions League last season, re-joined the club from Juventus last summer for €32m
