Deal Close: £73,000-a-week Star has Decided to Sign for Man United
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Spanish international and Real Madrid star Alvaro Morata for quite some time and the latest reports look really positive for the Red Devils.
According to an exclusive report covered by Express, the 24-year-old centre forward has told his friends that he has decided to join Manchester United this summer.
The British source have stated that the former Juventus star returned early from his honeymoon to speed up the transfer process, which is now almost a done deal.
Morata featured in 42 games for the Los Blancos last season and directly contributed in no fewer than 26 goals (20 goals and 6 assists).
He mainly warmed the bench under the management of Zidane and needs to play regular first team football next season to confirm his place in the national squad for the next year’s World Cup. A move to Old Trafford is surely going to help the £73,000-a-week star (Daily Star)
The La Roja striker has taken his decision to join the Red Devils after Jose Mourinho convinced him to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Express).
In the second half of the campaign, Rashford was brilliant for the Red Devils, especially in the absence of Ibrahimovic. However, if Morata arrives, we can expect the England international to mainly start on the left wing.
Arguably the biggest hurdle in the deal was the price tag but now that issue is going to be resolved as well. As per the provided Express link, the European Champions are set to lower their asking price of £70million and are close to agreeing a fee worth £60m.
