Sergio Ramos has discussed the future of Real Madrid striker and Manchester United target Alvaro Morata.

Morata has emerged as United’s priority transfer target this summer, with the club wanting to sign an ‘out-and-out striker’ to replace the departing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

It was claimed last week that the Spaniard has already agreed terms at Old Trafford, and that United now have to negotiate a fee with Real.

United initially bid £52m for the striker and are expected to increase that offer to £60m, although that still falls short of Real’s £79m valuation.

Speaking after he featured for Spain in a World Cup qualifying victory over Macedonia at the weekend, for which Morata was an unused substitute, Sergio Ramos discussed his Real teammate’s future.

“We’ll see what happens with Morata. I wish him the best and he’ll decide what will happen,” he said.

“I have a special affection for him and I always wish him the best.

“It is not up to me if he stays. I wish everyone stays.”
