Madrid are reported to have suggested £78 million as a compromise and now that United know Morata is keen a compromise could be reached.
His agent, Juanma Lopez, made it plain to Real last week that Morata was edging towards an exit, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema ahead of him in Zinedine Zidane's pecking order.
Manchester United have already made one bid for the attacking midfielder, said to be in the region of £52 million, but their offer was rebuffed by Madrid. Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role. "I can not say [if a deal will be closed soon] - we will see".
Despite not being considered a regular for Madrid this season Morata still contributed heavily to their La Liga and Champions League triumphs as he struck 18 goals in total across those competitions and 20 overall.
As per Don Balón, Morata has spoken with Bale and urged him to join him at United next season.
