Florentino Perez throws James Rodriguez's Manchester United transfer into doubt

Florentino Perez throws James Rodriguez's Manchester United transfer into doubt

Real don't seem to be in a rush to sell Morata, but the player does not want his deal to become a transfer saga.

Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata has quit his Ibiza honeymoon to push through his £70million move to Manchester United, which could be completed in the next 48 hours.

Morata scored 20 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions last season.

According to reports in Spanish sport sheet AS, Morata is very close to sealing his protracted move to United, with talks now back underway after being put on hold for the striker's recent wedding.

"I don't think we're in negotiations with Manchester United, which is not to say that there are people around him who are talking, which is normal", he told esRadio's El Primer Palo show.

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.

His representatives have also made it clear to United that their player wants the transfer to Old Trafford and are doing their best to try and get it through. "Plus, the players must have a space [in the team] to be able to improve, and previous year I did not see it with him".
