The Spanish international is one of the most versatile players in the La Liga at the moment, but has not been the first choice for Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu. He has bagged 17 goals and 4 assists in all competitions this season, but has made just 21 appearances all season in La Liga, and is not happy with his situation at the moment.

Morata has constantly been linked with a move to Chelsea, but Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to make the first move for his signature.

According to reports from Spanish media outfit Don Balon, Mourinho has made Morata a priority this summer, and is ready to do whatever it takes to lure him to Old Trafford. The 24-year old is contracted with the Spanish club till 2021, but Zidane could be open to selling him, as he is also planning an overhaul at the end of the season.
