AC Milan have agreed on terms with Alvaro Morata for a move this summer, but are lining up an offer for Andrea Belotti nonetheless.

The Serie A giants are now a renewed force in world football, as their Chinese owners have decided to spend big on the club this summer.

AC Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League, but that has not stopped them from looking to sign some of the best players in Europe. They are desperate for a star striker, and Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio today revealed that Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata could be on his way back to Italy.

The Spanish attacker is right up there with the best in his role in Europe, and has already proven his mettle in Italy with Turin-based Juventus. He is currently unsettled at Real Madrid, and is looking for an exit, and it is reported that he has verbally agreed to a move to the San Siro this summer.

The report also claims that AC Milan have agreed to pay Morata close to €8m-a-year in wages, and that the player is happy with the substantial raise in his deal.

The Spanish star could yet make an impact for Real Madrid, as Los Blancos are expected to use him in the Champions League final against Italian giants Juventus.

Therefore, Milan do not want to take any chances, and are also planning to spend on Andrea Belotti if they fail to lure Morata. The Rossoneri are ready to offer Torino around €70m + €10m in bonuses for his signature.

AC Milan are reportedly confident of landing either of the two forwards, and this will mean that there is one less target to approach for the clubs in the Premier League.
