England will be the next possible destination for Morata.

Alvaro Morata is desperate to leave the reigning European Champions in search for regular first team actions.

Zinedine Zidane has always preferred the French number 9 ahead of the Spainiard. Although Morata has had better goal scoring ratio to minutes played than Benzema he was still left out of the starting line up on several occasions.

Real Madrid brought him back from Juventus after activating the buy back clause but Morata was used as a deputy who started the matches when Karim Benzema was injured or rested.

With a new season awaiting, Morata is preparing to take yet another step and head to the Premier League with a few big clubs showing interest in him. Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte will look forward to challenge for the Champions League as both the English clubs returned to the elite competition.

Antonio Conte used the least number of players through out the whole campaign and is set to bolster his squad depth by adding some marquee signings, with the recent bust up between Costa and him, the deal is looking more likely to happen.

On the contrary, Manchester United have decided to release their leading goal scorer of this season after Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a horrific knee injury and he is likely to miss 2017 without taking part in any competitive match. Alvaro Morata will definitely be a perfect replacement of Zlatan as he is a proven goalscorer for his National Team and the clubs he has played for.

Reports from Spain suggests that Morata`s agent is in advanced talks with several clubs and now its upto the player to decide his future.

Morata has already removed Real Madrid from his twitter profile, which might be a clear indication that he is heading for another destination.

Real Madrid has put a huge price tag for Morata, and they will reportedly get thrice the amount they had to pay Juventus to bring him back to Spain.

The transfer window has officially opened in England and it seems to be a tug of war between the Premier League giants for the prolific center forward.
