Manchester United will have to splash out a record fee if they are to sign Alvaro Morata this summer.

The Red Devils are keen to secure the Spanish striker, although talk of a deal already being agreed is understood to be premature.

Morata was restricted to a bit-part role at Real Madrid last season, but the Champions League winners will not let him leave on the cheap.

Los Blancos are holding out for £60million for the forward, according to Marca, which would make the 24-year-old the most expensive player in Spanish history.

It would surpass the £50m Chelsea paid Liverpool for Fernando Torres.
