Alvaro Morata hints create excitement for Manchester United fans

13 Juin 2017

The striker wants to leave the Bernabeu this summer after a frustrating season that saw him play a supporting role to Karim Benzema and United believe that a bid of around £60 million will be enough to secure his services.

According to the Telegraph, Alvaro Morata has agreed to join Manchester United this summer.

He wants to play more.

Manchester United are said to be close to taking advantage of the situation and are now favourites to sign the 24-year-old striker from Real Madrid. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic's fucked knee forcing Jose Mourinho to look elsewhere for a new number nine, it's expected that a deal for the Real Madrid man is all but done.

Mourinho knows Morata well from their time together at Madrid and it was the Portuguese coach who gave the striker his full debut so he obviously rates him very highly.

One of the keys to this transfer, perhaps making the transfer fee slightly less intimidating, though it shouldn't put off a club of United's wealth, is that Morata is still 24-years-old.

He ended the game with a slew of records, each one more improbable than the next after he hit home runs in his next four at-bats. Moreover, if this night means a new skill for Gennett, Reds fans could have plenty of reason to be excited later this season.

Chelsea are proposing a €155m double deal for the duo that blows United's offer out of the water, though they may not move for James if they can not sign Morata too.

Lindelof will become United's first summer signing after the English club agreed a fee with Benfica for the Swedish worldwide.

Now United boss Jose Mourinho is keen to tie up a deal to bring Morata to Old Trafford, with the striker's agent Juanma Lopez suggesting a deal may be announced soon.

Mourinho won the Community Shield, Europa League and League Cup titles but drew criticism after an abject league performance, where United finished sixth in his first year in charge.

Morata made just 14 La Liga starts for Real Madrid last season but scored a total of 15 times, averaging a goal every 81 minutes across the term.

Following his breakthrough from Real Madrid Castilla and four seasons with the Blancos first team, Morata went on to claim five major trophies with the Turin side - including consecutive Scudettos - and helped Max Allegri's side to the 2015 Champions League final.
