Arsenal have been handed a massive boost in signing one of Arsene Wenger’s long term target Alvaro Morata as Real Madrid president Florentino Perez reveals no official bid has been tabled by Manchester United for the Spaniard.

However, reports claims the Spaniard has been in constant communication with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho over a possible summer move to Old Trafford this summer.

Morata has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates in previous transfer windows and reports in Spain claims Arsene Wenger is set to return with a mega bid for the Spaniard as he looks on adding to his strike force ahead of next season.

The newly re-elected Real Madrid president also claimed his star man could leave the club — if someone meets his £880million release clause.

Morata is a complete modern striker, who is strong on the ball, has energy and pace, and at 6ft 2in is also lethal in the air.

He joined Juventus in July 2014 for £17.5million but Real retained an option to buy him back.

After scoring 27 goals in 93 games in Italy, Real bought Morata back for £26million in 2016.

Last season he managed 20 goals for Real, his best return.
