Man United have all but completed signing of top 24-year-old striker – report
Manchester United have all but completed a deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer, say reports
Manchester United have all but completed a deal to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer, but there has been a delay in announcing the transfer because of the uncertainty surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol is claiming that Manchester United have all but secured the signing of Morata this summer as Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his attacking options at Old Trafford.
The same report claims that Real Madrid are set to accept a bid for Morata from Manchester United and that the player himself now has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford.
However, the official announcement about the deal has been delayed because of the uncertainty surrounding Ronaldo’s future at Real Madrid.
Despite Ronaldo being linked with a move away from Real Madrid, it is claimed that the Spanish club are confident that they will be able to keep hold of the 32-year-old beyond the summer.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a bid for Morata in recent days.
The Red Devils have only made one signing so far this summer – the capture of defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica.
