Alvaro Morata transfer latest: Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham alerted to possible loan deal
Real Madrid prepared to let Spanish youngster leave
Real Madrid have indicated that Alvaro Morata will be allowed to go out on loan next season.
The striker has long been linked with a host of Premier League sides, including Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham, and now seems destined for a move away from the Bernabeu, at least for the short term.
Speaking at the Italian embassy in the Spanish capital, Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti revealed that Morata has grown frustrated with his lack of game time and the club are prepared to let him find it elsewhere.
"The player wants to play more minutes and the club agrees," said Ancelotti.
"If he could find the chance of playing it would be good that he had the chance for a year.
"If Morata goes then we'll have to think about signing a similar striker with the same characteristics, a youngster."
Arsenal have been the club most heavily linked with the 21-year-old who last season scored nine times in 34 appearances. Morata is yet to be capped by the senior side but has scored 13 goals in 12 appearances for the Spanish Under-21s.
