€70m star’s wife drops Man Utd hint as transfer talk intensifies
The latest indication that Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is on his way to Manchester United this summer may have been played out on Instagram.
The Blancos forward has endured a frustrating time since his return from Juventus, starting just 14 league games under manager Zinedine Zidane last season, and is believed to have a deal to join the Old Trafford side on the table.
Numerous reports suggest that Morata will ditch the Liga champions in favour of a move to the Premier League with a starting spot in the Spanish national side at World Cup 2018 in mind. The only stumbling block is the €70 million that Real are said to be demanding to kick-start proceedings.
However, events seem to be unfolding on social media.
The player himself previously ‘liked’ an Instagram post suggesting he and Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale would join former Blancos boss Jose Mourinho at United ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.
And now, Morata’s wife Alice Campello has followed the Red Devils’ official account on the same platform.
Morata proposed to Campello, who also follows David and Brooklyn Beckham and Lionel Messi on her Instagram account, as part of a magic show in Spain in 2016.
