Manchester United launch £52.4m offer for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata

Reports in his homeland of Spain suggest Morata would prefer to join Chelsea over Milan, but the Blues are unwilling to match the £61million valuation, while Milan are, which puts the Italians in the box seat.

But Rashford, who was the second top scorer at Old Trafford behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season, says Morata is exactly the sort of player the club should be after.

"I know for certain that Manchester United are the only club that want Morata, nobody else", Paco Gonzalez of Cadena Cope noted.

While Sky Sport Italia continue to backtrack, Alfonso, his father, has now confirmed that Manchester United are the only side to have shown a real interest in signing his son when responding to a Spanish journalist on the matter.

And the sources have said that if Jose Mourinho's pursuit for Morata proves unsuccessful, he will turn his attentions to Torino striker Andrea Belotti.

Egypt launches second round of air strikes over Libya
Egypt has seen a sharp rise in attacks against Christians , who represent 10 percent of the country's 91 million residents. Egyptian military footage of pilots being briefed and war planes taking off was shown on state television.

The 24-year-old has struggled to hold down a regular place since re-joining Madrid from Juventus last summer and a move could be on the cards as he looks to secure first team football ahead of the 2018 World Cup finals.

Morata has more goals (20) than starts (19) for Madrid in 2016-17 and his goal ratio is better than any other player in the squad.

However Belotti has around £85m on his release clause and pursuing him would not be a cheap deal.

The attacker netted 15 times in 26 La Liga matches to help Madrid win the league and he appeared off the bench during the Champions League triumph over Juventus on Saturday.

The Spanish capital club are interested in signing United goalkeeper David de Gea, but the report claims that the goalkeeper was not part of the offer with the Premier League club only interested in the striker.
