The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling confident that Alvaro Morata will come to Old Trafford this summer…
Their hopes have taken a real boost today, too, with the Telegraph reporting that Alvaro Morata has sensationally agreed to terms with Man Utd regarding a move, with a deal now only needed between the two clubs. Significantly, it is noted that Morata is expecting to be at Man Utd next season.
This certainly seems to suggest that a move is beginning to edge closer, with Morata’s personal opinions vitally important in assessing the nature of the news. Given that the Spaniard is now expecting to be at the club next season, it sounds as if an agreement between Man Utd and Real Madrid is becoming inevitable, leaving those in the pub dancing on the pool tables
Morata, who reportedly earns £73,000-per-week at Real Madrid, is, of course, one of Europe’s most impressive forwards. Though he is not a regular for Real Madrid, the Spaniard impressed last season, picking up 15 goals despite starting just 14 times.
Man Utd, meanwhile, are looking to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer – and our landlord thinks that they would be hard pressed to find an option better than Morata. Technical, agile, lethal – he has all the traits of a top forward.
