Transfer report will please Man United fans after Ibrahimovic departure

Things move thick and fast for the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, who have watched the club conduct some pretty big summer business already. 

Indeed, a deal for Benfica and Sweden defender Victor Lindelof has already been agreed, while superstar forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been released, as our resident Red Devils get ready for another summer overhaul.

So, reports from the Independent have gone down a storm indeed. They claim the Premier League giants are making progress on a deal with Real Madrid over Spanish international forward Alvaro Morata.

With the aforementioned Ibra gone and Wayne Rooney expected to depart, our local United-man punters are eager to see a new marksman arrive in order to lead the line for the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’.

Despite struggling to break the famed BBC (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano) attacking trident in the Spanish capital, Morata is undoubtedly one of the most talented forwards on the continent.

Chelsea have also been strongly linked with a move for the 24-year-old, though the report suggests United have made progress. Indeed, seeing the La Roja international arrive in the North West this week for a medical is reportedly feasible.

The Red Devils are believed to be confident of wrapping up a £70m move for the ex-Juventus man, much to the delight our locals, who believe Mourinho can help get the best out of the Spaniard.

Though Morata has a long way to go to prove he’s up to Ibra’s standard, he’s at least a big-name replacement on paper.
