According to the Catalan newspaper, Chelsea would offer €75m for Morata, and €80m for James, which is pretty much dream-come-true territory for Real Madrid.

Morata scored 20 goals in all competitions for Zinedine Zidane's side last season as it won both the La Liga and the Champions League.

The 24-year-old's representative Juanma Lopez said the Spain global is keen to secure regular first-team football after struggling to dislodge Karim Benzema as Zinedine Zidane's first choice striker in Madrid.

The Spaniard returned to Real Madrid from Juventus on a £25 million buyback option.

Morata remembers that Mourinho gave him his chance at Real Madrid and hopes to be able to reunite with him.

Also, Jose Mourinho always likes to get business done early and after signing Victor Lindelof, Alvaro Morata on Monday is all set to become United's second marquee signing of this transfer window.

Rumours of Alvaro Morata's proposed move to Manchester United have been gathering pace over the past week and his social media activity suggests he is interested in the deal.

Although Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals for United last season, he suffered a serious knee injury against Anderlecht in the Europa League quarter-final and he's not expected to be back in action until the end of the year. He wants to play more.

This latest break comes less than 24 hours after it was heavily reported that Man United would not be renewing the contract of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

But despite the 35-year-old's preference to remain at Old Trafford, sources say his name is likely to be on the club's list of released players to be published by the Premier League on Friday. "It's a very important proposal and now the decision rests with Real".
