have been offered the chance to sign former striker Alvaro Morata from .

Erik ten Hag is desperate to add more firepower to his squad but the club have pulled out of a move for former striker Marko Arnautovic.

Benjamin Sesko, the RB Salzburg forward, was another target but RB Leipzig confirmed a deal to sign the teenager today.

That’s left United scrambling in the transfer market and ESPN report that they’ve been offered Spanish ace Morata.

The former Chelsea ace has one year to run on his deal at Atletico Madrid and Diego Simeone is willing to let him leave.

Morata joined Chelsea in 2017, having believed that he was going to join United that summer.

However, United hijacked the Blues’ move for Romelu Lukaku, which left Chelsea to sign Morata instead.

The 29-year-old has spent his entire career at elite clubs, including Juventus and Real Madrid, but he’s never found a club to truly call home and he’s spent the last two years on loan in Turin.

United want a striker that can provide back-up for Anthony Martial and Cristiano Ronaldo, the latter of which the club maintain is not for sale.

The club are confident of pulling off a deal for Morata’s team-mate, Adrien Rabiot, from Juventus.

A deal in principle has been agreed with the Italians for the Frenchman, though United are yet to agree personal terms with the midfielder.
