Manchester United are yet to spend any money during the summer transfer window, but that isn’t for the want of trying. One man whom the Old Trafford club are seemingly interested in is Alvaro Morata of Real Madrid, but the Red Devils saw their £52million bid rejected.
It seems as though Jose Mourinho hasn’t been put off, however, and according to The Guardian, United are ready to up their offer to £60million.
The self-proclaimed Special One has identified the Spaniard as his primary target as the hunt for a new striker continues, and it is a move that makes a whole lot of sense.
Mourinho will know Morata well from their time together at Real Madrid, and so far, our boss has gotten every single one of his transfer decisions correct, so he gets my full backing here.
In terms of goals output, Morata found the back of the net on twenty occasions last term, which is mightily impressive given the amount of minutes he was actually handed by Madrid.
At 24, the forward still has his best years ahead of him and this move has the potential of one that we could be reaping the benefits of in the long-term.
As of right now, I’d just like to see United bring in a new player who knows where the back of the net is, and Morata fits that bill.
