However, Morata has now emerged as a key target for Chelsea, to replace fellow Spain global Diego Costa.
And it is his inability to dethrone the Frenchman as the first-choice striker in the eyes of Zinedine Zidane that has frustrated Morata, who is now looking to move in order to secure better first-team opportunities for himself.
Diego Costa is set to leave the Blues after falling out of favour with Antonio Conte and the Italian has already told him he won't be in his plans next season.
Italian paper Tuttosport have crossed worldwide divides on Sunday, splashing their front page with a story about how Man United are attempting to sign two stars from Real Madrid.
Morata has been heavily linked with a transfer to Manchester United in recent days as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad at Old Trafford.
United had been favourites to sign the Spain global, with a £65m deal appearing close to completion last week.
He is the real deal, and there is still much more to come.
That delay has allowed Chelsea to barge in at the last minute, and the Mirror say Morata's desire to work under Conte could swing the deal in their favour.
Alvaro Morata took a break from reported transfer talks on Saturday to marry his partner Alice Campello.
The 32-year-old Seleccao star helped Madrid win the La Liga title and was once again fantastic in the Champions League as the Spanish club retained their crown.
