Arsenal and Man United ready for battle to sign star striker – report

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all want to sign Alvaro Morata this summer, say reports

Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea all want to sign Alvaro Morata this summer, according to reports.

The Spain international’s future has been a relentless source of speculation in recent weeks and is said to have attracted interest from a host of Europe’s top clubs.

Real Madrid have exercised their buy-back clause to bring the striker back to the club from Juventus in recent days.

It is widely expected that the Spanish club are prepared to sell the striker on at a profit in the summer transfer window.

And Squawka is now reporting that three of the Premier League’s top sides are interested in bringing Morata to England this summer.

The same report goes on to say that Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea will have to wait, however, for Real Madrid to decide on their plans for the striker.
