Morata cuts honeymoon short to seal Manchester United move

Florentino Perez has assured that Real Madrid are yet to reach an agreement with Manchester United over the transfer of Alvaro Morata as Los Blancos are not in a hurry to complete the sale of the striker.

Morata, 24, has been heavily linked with a move to United in recent weeks, with the Spain international's agent Juanma Lopez having said his client could leave Madrid this summer to gain more regular football. "I have read that we have reached an agreement for certain millions but nothing of this is true".

The Spain global scored 20 goals across all competitions for Real despite spending the majority of last season stuck behind Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo in the pecking order.

Though Jackson has not worked out for the Celtics, it was reported Wednesday that the team had received his medical information. Then, it was believed that Boston could save the night by stealing Paul George away from the Lakers.

That has prompted Morata to take the extraordinary step of briefly leaving his new wife to travel back to the Spanish capital in a bid to persuade Real not to create a protracted process and to grant him his wish of joining United before resuming his honeymoon.

Morata has made it clear that he wants to move to United, after growing frustrated at his lack of game time under Zidane.

"The only thing I can say is Cristiano Ronaldo is a Real Madrid player", he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero, on the day he was re-elected president of the European champions.

The briefing was the first substantive elaboration by the Trump administration of its India policy and the way forward. Unlike the president, however, Modi enjoys widespread popularity at home, polls show.

"It is a shame if he leaves, but I have always said that it is an enrichment factor for our football that our players have been able to go overseas and have been able to play".

It's reported that Morata is keen to be a United player well before the club start pre-season training on July 8 but Madrid have been in no hurry to sell as they feel they could get a better deal later in the summer.
