The Spanish giants are on the verge of selling their youth product, Morata, to the Italian champions and have been looking for players who could replace the 21-year-old at the Santiago Bernabeu outfit next term.

And according to Spanish website, Fichajes.com, Los Blancos believe Negredo would fit the bill because of his history in La Liga previously.

The story comes just days after the striker revealed that he did not want to leave England in the coming months after having being linked with Real’s city rivals, Atletico Madrid, recently.

He said: ‘I don’t want to leave City, I’m very happy and settled here.
