Big spending AC Milan to offer €70M for Real Madrid striker Morata

However, the transfer ultimately didn't materialise, with United signing Romelu Lukaku from Premier League rivals Everton instead for a reported £75million fee, but Herrera, who has previously been in the Spain squad with Morata, says would have welcomed the 24-year-old's arrival.

However, Chelsea's attention appears to be split between a number of strikers as it stands - with Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang believed to now sit at the top of their wish list - and it could leave Milan free to secure a deal for Morata.

As if swap deals on this scale ever happen (they really, really don't), Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has demanded Toni Kroos in exchange for David de Gea should Real Madrid keep going back in for the United goalkeeper.

As per the provided Mirror link, the Los Blancos previously backed away from signing the Spanish global and their renewed interest has angered Jose Mourinho, who is now ready to sign Toni Kroos from the European Champions.

In Italy they have no doubts: Real Madrid's Álvaro Morata will be the next purchase of the now Chinese-funded AC Milan. I wish him the best, at Madrid or anywhere else.

"I believe [De Gea] is going to stay [at United]", Mata said.

Herrera is quoted as saying by Metro: "I even started to think I'd be playing with Morata".

"We have had interest (in Morata)".

"The selling club is the one who puts the price on the player, the buying club doesn't".

"It is a right of Madrid to ask for their players the amount they want".

"(We made) offers we thought were fair and yet no agreement was reached".
