Manchester United’s debut season under Jose Mourinho is winding down to a close, and all things considered, we’re looking pretty good right about now. The Red Devils have one trophy under our belt and we’re in the semi-final of the Europa League, as well as being nicely placed in the Premier League.
With the summer window looming, transfer rumours are an inevitability, and the latest story claims that Manchester United’s manager has made a call to Real Madrid about the possibility of signing striker Alvaro Morata. That’s according to Spanish media outlet Don Balon, translated by the Manchester Evening News.
Obviously, Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s season is done due to that horrific leg injury, and his contract expires at the end of the current campaign and I’d be very surprised if that was renewed. That leaves an open spot for another striker to come in.
Morata is a top player who has found chances hard to come by at Real Madrid, and has mostly had to settle for his minutes from off of the bench which is probably beginning to frustrate him. We’ve seen exactly what he is capable of when playing week-in, week-out from his time at Juventus, and it could be an astute bit of transfer business.
Personally, if Mourinho thinks he is good enough for Manchester United then that is enough for me. The self-proclaimed Special One has gotten every single one of his transfers spot on so far, and I’d expect that to continue.
