Manchester United’s concerted effort towards the signing of the Spanish striker, Mr Alvaro Morata, has appeared to be hitting a snag. The amazing Real Madrid striker who is reported to be basking in the glory of honeymoon now, has shown much interest in playing at Old Trafford where, according to his agents, he will be among the first eleven.
It was previously reported that Real Madrid had agreed to release the much- sought-after striker in a deal valued at £60 million, only for Real Madrid to later to dishonor the deal by increasing the asking price to £80 million, much to the disappointment of Man United.
Despite Morata’s insatiable desires to join Jose Mourhino’s team, Zinedine Zidane has demonstrably become hell-bent on refusing to let go of the player. According to The Sun, it’s reported that Manchester United’s quest for the signing of Real Madrid’s striker, Alvaro Morata has stalled as a result of the upping of the asking price. The newspaper further goes on to say: “Manchester united had valued the striker, who couldn’t even get in the first team regularly last season, at £60 million.”
However, the latest news from The Manchester Evening is uplifting for Manchester united diehards as it rekindles the hopes of getting Morata’s signature. “Manchester United are edging closer to the second signing of the summer.”
Realizing that Manchester United’s pursuit for his signature (Morata), the Spanish professional football player was forced to disrupt his honey moon so as to ‘beseech’ and request Real Madrid to let him leave for Old Trafford. Perhaps his paradise.
“The developments pointing to United’s pursuit of Alvaro Morata has hit a stumbling block as Madrid increases the asking price to £80 million, prompted the player in question to disrupt his honeymoon and ask Real Madrid to let him leave for Man United…,” reports The Sun.
Given these new developments at Old Trafford, Manchester United fans will have to live within the confines of the Biblical Job’s patience. Or cool their heels before they vanish the hopes of signing in the 24-year old Alvaro Morata.
