Manchester United Football Club will be looking to add some more firepower to the squad this summer, especially after the news broke suggesting the Red Devils will not be offering Zlatan Ibrahimovic a new deal. One name constantly linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams is Alvaro Morata.
The 24-year-old Spaniard has worked with Jose Mourinho before, when the self-proclaimed Special One was in charge at Real Madrid.
Now, we could have just been given the biggest hint yet that a move is on the cards, and it comes directly from the man himself. Below is a fans’ post on Instagram about Morata potentially joining United, and shortly after the post went live, the Spaniard ‘liked it’.
Usually, I’m not a fan of this type of ‘transfer news’ and I do use the term lightly, but it does seem rather odd that he has done that at this point in time.
Morata is either a huge troll or he’s trying to leave subtle hints about the possibility of him becoming a Manchester United player. Personally, I hope it’s the latter because he’s a fantastically gifted footballer.
Now, it’s down to Edward Woodward and his team to get this deal over the line. Hopefully, we hear something concrete soon.
