Mourinho plans further talks as deadline for United deal closes in

The Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are desperate to see just who else Jose Mourinho will add before the new season starts, and they could be getting closer to finding out.

The Red Devils return to pre-season training next Monday, and according to reports from The Express the former Chelsea manager wants one key signing in place by then.

The newspaper claims that further talks with Real Madrid have been scheduled over a deal for striker Alvaro Morata, after a bid of £60m was snubbed by the consecutive Champions League winners.

Los Blancos are holding out for an offer of £70m if they are to entertain the notion of selling the former Juventus striker, who they brought back from Turin last summer for a fee in the region of £30m thanks to a buy-back clause.

With Mourinho keen to have signings in place before the squad returns to Carrington to prepare for the new season our landlord reckons that the Portuguese will happily sanction a £70m fee for the Spanish international.

United fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think Mourinho should just pay the asking price and land Morata? Let us know in the comments below.
