Alvaro Morata has edged closer to joining Manchester United after his agent ruled out a move to AC Milan.

Morata's representative Juanma Lopez claimed Real Madrid have rejected Milan's offer for the Spain international, leaving United as the red-hot favourites to sign him.


Jose Mourinho has made Morata his top striking target and Lopez claims United are a "very interesting option" for the former Juventus hitman.

When asked about the possibility of Morata joining United, Lopez said: "It's a great club, a very interesting option.

"I can say that this is a very important proposal and now the decision is real."

United have priced Milan out of the reckoning and they are prepared to pay up to £60million to land Morata, who wants to leave the Bernabeu to start more regularly.
