Jose Mourinho urged to sign 24-year-old for Man United
Steve Nicol urges Manchester United to complete a transfer deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer
Steve Nicol has urged Manchester United to compete a transfer deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer.
The Red Devils have been linked with a host of attacking players in recent weeks as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his squad at Old Trafford.
Morata’s future at Real Madrid has been a source of speculation in recent days and Manchester United have been linked with a possible transfer swoop for the 24-year-old Spain striker.
And Liverpool legend Nicol believes that signing Morata would represent a great piece of business for Manchester United this summer.
Speaking to ESPN FC, ex-Liverpool defender Nicol said: “I think that would be a good move for United.
“They have absolutely no idea how Ibrahimovic is going to come back.
“I think they need a centre-forward to add anyway and Morata is not far from a world class centre-forward.
“It would be great business by Manchester United.”
Manchester United are hoping to be able to use the lure of Champions League football to attract some top talent to Old Trafford this summer.
The Red Devils booked their place in the group stage of Europe’s elite club competition by beating Ajax in the Europa League final last month.
