Real are still holding out for more money, though, with their asking price set at €90 million (£78.8 million), according to Sky Sports News HQ's Kaveh Solhekol: If Morata were to sign for the Rossoneri he would join the likes of Leonardo Bonucci, Lucas Biglia, Franck Kessie and Hakan Calhanoglu as new recruits at the San Siro.
