Alvaro Morata signs 4-year deal at Manchester United for €70m – report

Alvaro Morata has signed a 4-year contract at Manchester United in a deal expected to be in the region of €70 million, according to reports.

He has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho was on the lookout to bolster his attacking options after releasing Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the club.

They had a previous offer of £52 million rejected for the Spaniard, but both parties have said to agreed on a fee to finalise his summer move to Man United.

Reports on Saturday claimed a deal has been met for Morata to complete his transfer to Man United.

Mourinho clearly sees him as the player most capable in the summer transfer market to take over from Ibrahimovic up front, and although he won’t be able to match what the big Swede brought to the players around him, Morata will be able to score goals and play at Old Trafford for a long time.

Morata is only 24, and although he hasn’t had the true run of games he desperately deserves, it’s clear he has all the attributes to go on and become a top player under the manager who previously gave him his debut at Real in 2010.
