Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is looking to bring in both Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata to the club, according to The Independent. With the release of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the possible departure of Wayne Rooney, the Portuguese boss wants to strengthen his strike force with two additions this summer.
When it comes to Torino striker Belotti, United have made a bid of £70m and believe that the Serie A side will lower their asking price of £84m (his release clause). AC Milan are also fighting for his signature. Personal terms have yet to be agreed with the Il Gallo.
The Premier League side have already agreed personal terms with Morata, but are still negotiating a fee with Madrid for a fee of around £60m. The Spanish club are looking for a fee around £78m but United are confident of bringing down the asking price with Madrid’s pursuit of AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe. Morata is also keen on joining the Premier League, rejecting a move to AC Milan and is looking forward to play under Mourinho.
Mourinho is also hoping to bring in five new players to the club this summer including Morata, Belotti, and three other players – Fabinho, Victor Lindelof, and Ivan Perisic being the main targets. Lindelof is expected to join United after the international break, and negotiations are still ongoing for Fabinho and Perisic.
