Real Madrid Striker Alvaro Morata ‘Convinced To Move To Manchester United By Teammates’

Published on:

Manchester United duo Ander Herrera and David De Gea have reportedly left no stone unturned to convince the Spanish striker to join the Red Devils this summer.

Man Utd clinched three trophies in 2016-17, but now they have released their superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic after a serious cruciate ligament knee injury in April dented his Red Devils career.

Sources reveal that Wayne Rooney is also on the brink of Man Utd exit and the Red Devils desperately need to add a lot of firepower and creativity in their attack in a bid to bring back their glory old days.

And after losing out on Antoine Griezmann due to Atletico Madrid’s transfer embargo, Man Utd are now keen on roping in Morata but are yet to agree in principle with Real Madrid over a deal for the Spanish striker.

According to Marca, Herrera and De Gea have been trying to convince Morata to make a switch to Old Trafford during their on-going international campaign with Spain.

It is understood that De Gea would stay put at United after Real Madrid dropped their interest and Herrera is also believed to been on working alongside Morata at Manchester United in the upcoming season.

Morata had a decent season, having scored 15 league goals for Real, but was hardly a starter for Zinedine Zidane’s side as he was way down the pecking order behind Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

He stated just 14 games last season and as his agent confirmed he is not looking for a similar next season.

The striker was the second top scorer for Real Madrid, with only Cristiano Ronaldo finding the back of the net on more occasions that him.
