"Manchester United? They are a club with great glamour, a very interesting option," Lopez said to CalcioMercato.com.

"I can say that their proposal is a very, very important one and now the decision rests with Real. I cannot say [if a deal will be closed soon] – we will see."

Lopez also confirmed AC Milan were interested in Morata until they decided to sign Porto striker Andre Silva.

"Yes, there was frequent contact with us until a few days ago – I can confirm that," added Morata's representative.

"Quite simply, Real Madrid considered the Rossoneri's offer to be unsatisfactory."
