Reports suggest Jose Mourinho is growing increasingly frustrated with United over a lack of progress in their bid to land Morata ahead of the side’s pre-season tour of the United States.
According to Spanish outlet AS, Morata’s agent, Juanma Lopez, was accompanied by Alfonso Morata at Madrid’s stadium on Monday afternoon to talk over the 24-year-old’s future.
It’s understood the meeting lasted around 50 minutes as the Red Devils continue to step up their interest in the Spaniard after missing out on Atletico Madrid talisman Antoine Griezmann earlier on this summer.
Los Blancos are demanding a fee of at least £70million for Morata ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

Last week, Madrid president Florentino Perez insisted: ‘I think we’re not in negotiations with Manchester United, which is not to say that there are people around you who are talking, which is normal.
‘I have read that we have reached an agreement I do not know how many million times, but it isn’t true.’
