Report: 23-year-old will not join Manchester United if superstar arrives

Morata

23-year-old Manchester United target Alvaro Morata, currently a striker for Italian side Juventus and the Spanish national team, is rumoured to have ruled out any move to Old Trafford should PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic also make the move, according to Italian news outlet GazettaWorld.

According to rumours, the talented Spaniard would prefer a move to United over other interested Premier League sides, but is concerned about sitting on the bench if 34-year-old Ibrahimovic joins the Red Devils up front as well.

Morata joined Juventus in 2014 from Real Madrid for a reported fee of £16m, scoring 27 goals in 93 appearances en route to winning the league and Coppa Italia in both seasons, and is reportedly keen to start up front under Jose Mourinho next season.

To complicate matters further, the young star is likely to be bought back by former club Real Madrid for a reported fee of £23m before then being sold on for a substantial profit at £47.5m.
