It comes as no real secret or surprise that Manchester United are chasing Alvaro Morata for his signature. The 24-year-old scored 20 goals for Real Madrid last season, without really becoming a regular fixture in their starting XI.
Now, we’ve been given another update in the saga today, and it comes from COPE. They have done some digging and found out that Morata’s new wife, has indeed followed Manchester United on Instagram…

Personally, I’ve never been a fan of using this type of news to point to a potential transfer happening, but it seems to be a regular occurrence in the modern-day game. Furthermore, more often than not, it tends to be right.
It just seems far too random for it to be a coincidence and in my opinion, there is probably more to it than meets the eye. For me, Alvaro Morata would be a fantastic signing and it definitely feels like the deal is getting closer.
It’s now up to Edward Woodward and his staff to push the move over the line. We’re absolutely desperate for a new goalscorer, particularly following the news that Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contract will not be renewed.
Morata is the man who Jose Mourinho has identified, and for me, he’ll be a great fit for Premier League football.
