The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to land a big-name forward this summer…
They could well get their wish, too, with Mirror reporting that the Red Devils are edging closer to a move for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata. A move, reported to be around the £65 million mark, could be completed as early as next week – leaving the fans in the pub in dreamland.
It has been a summer of transition up front for Man Utd so far this summer, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic unlikely to be playing for the club next season following his release, and with Wayne Rooney’s future continuing to be plagued with uncertainty.
Indeed, whilst Marcus Rashford is more than capable of leading the line alone, the Man Utd fans in the pub are delighted that he may well be getting some extra back up this summer.
For his part, Morata is a player in the same ilk as Rashford in that he is quick, technical, and – most importantly – he is a lethal goalscorer. He bagged 15 La Liga goals last season in difficult circumstances, and so the Red Devils in the pub are hoping that he’ll be able to land even more at Old Trafford next season.
Our landlord thinks that Morata could well become the signing of the summer should it happen.
