Manchester United target Alvaro Morata after signing Victor Lindelof

Premier League giants Manchester United are now targeting want-away Real Madrid strike Alvaro Morata after agreeing a deal to sign defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.

In a statement, United said; "Manchester United is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Benfica for the transfer of Victor Lindelof, subject to a medical examination, international clearance and personal terms. A further announcement will be made once the transfer is complete."

It’s understood that Man United will pay £30.7 for the 22-year-old Swedish International, with a further £8.8m that is payable based on performances according to Sky sources.

The Red Devils are eager to beef up their attacking force by singing the Spanish forward after releasing 35-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

According to a Spanish newspaper Marca, “Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has convinced Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, 24, to join the club - with an offer expected on Monday.”

Metro also reports that 24-year-old has dropped a hint on social media that he could be joining United, after he 'liked' an Instagram post appearing to confirm an imminent move.
