The agent of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata confirms that his in-demand client will make a decision over his future in the coming days.

The agent of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata has revealed that his client will make a decision over his future in the coming days.

The 24-year-old has been the subject of intense transfer speculation recently, with Manchester United among those thought to be interested and rumoured to be lining up a £60m bid.

Morata scored 20 times to help Madrid to the league and Champions League double last season but played the full 90 minutes on just five occasions in La Liga and started only 14 matches.

A queue of clubs, including the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea and Arsenal, are thought to be keeping tabs on the Spain international, and his agent Juanma Lopez stressed that Morata needs more playing time.

"Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role. He wants to play more. Which is normal for an attacker who has scored [20] goals. It is too little," Lopez told Foot Mercato.

"I do not know [if he will do another season at Madrid]. This has been a brilliant season for Real Madrid who have won many titles. The player will take a clear and definitive decision in the coming days. I have not yet met with the representatives from Real Madrid.

"[More playing time] is what Alvaro wants. He does not want to do a season like this again. It was a great season, but he wants to play more. [The AC Milan interest] existed and continues to exist, like other big teams who are interested in a player of his quality."

Morata scored a late equaliser for Spain to rescue a 2-2 draw with Colombia in Murcia on Wednesday night.

Sunday's key events

· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
