United given Morata boost

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has convinced Alvaro Morata to join the Red Devils from Real Madrid.

Marca report the Portuguese manager has been given the green light and the club will make a bid imminently.

It will give Mourinho the firepower he needs after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a serious knee injury.

The former Juventus star will follow Victor Lindelof, who joins from Benfica in a £30.7m deal.
