Alvaro Morata to Manchester United is close – reliable source subtly reveals

Manchester United fans were thrown into a frenzy last night as report by the Sun emerged that Alvaro Morata’s wife subtly pledged her love for the Red Devils by following them on popular Social media site Instagram.

Antoine Griezmann was made a priority target for Man United but the transfer ban meted to the Rojiblancos meant the French star would remain at the Vicente Calderon for the entirety of next season. This made Mourinho to turn his attention to Morata.

Morata returned to Real Madrid after a two-year spell with the Old Lady but he has been left on the fringes of the Galacticos more often than not. Mourinho has reportedly called him and assured him of constant Man United game time as he looks to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic with the Spaniard.

The Spanish striker recently tied the knot with his heartthrob Alice Campello, and the pair are currently on holidays in Spain after they left Seychelles. Alice followed Man United on a social media platform but that has only steered excitement that she may have confirmed he is completing a move to Old Trafford.

Morata was handed his Real Madrid debut by Jose Mourinho in his first spell with the Club in 2010 and it appears that the Spaniard likes the fact that Mourinho believes in his ability.

“Mourinho could have chosen some other player, but he chose me and I’ll be grateful to him for the rest of my life,” the Spain international said in 2015.
