Manchester United want to complete a deal for Spanish striker Alvaro Morata and have a meeting to discuss the move today. That’s according to reports in the Spanish media. Respected sports outlet, Marca, says that the player wants to move to a place where he can get starts every week.
They also opined that the relationship between Jose Mourinho and Morata, who worked together at Real Madrid, has facilitated the move.
On Monday, a new meeting will take place between the agent of the player and Real, at which time the offer of the English club, which Madrid hopes will reach the 90 million euro mark, will be forthcoming.
Everything indicates that the proposal from United will be around 70 million.
TFF would be very surprised at this point if a deal didn’t go ahead. It appears that all parties want the transfer to go ahead and Manchester United will be getting a consistent and top level striker who is coming into the prime years of his career.
At 24 years of age he could give a good eight years of service to the club and is still improving. He’s not the most spectacular striker in the world but a regular goalscorer and a excellent hold up man.
The Spanish international who has eight goals in 19 games for his country is an intelligent player who will bring others into play and score 20 goals a season from Manchester United over the next few years. And he will no doubt add serious quality to the Manchester United squad. Let’s take a look at him in action.
