Mourinho Convinces Morata to Join Manchester United

Álvaro Morata

Álvaro Morata has a lot of doubts about his future. Although he said recently after winning the Champions League trophy that he’s a Real Madrid supporter and he would like to stay in the club, he also wants to enjoy more minutes in a top flight club and feel important within the squad. José Mourinho called the Spaniard to convince him to leave Spain and join Manchester United and the call was successful.

According to the Spanish newspaper MARCA, Morata has already told the club that he would like to leave the Spanish capital in the summer. His agent, Juanma López, went to the Real Madrid office to tell the club the decision made by the Spaniard. The call received by Mourinho was also very important.

The Portuguese coach phoned Morata this week. They had a good relationship because the coach was the Spaniard boss during his time at Real Madrid. The manager assured Morata that he was going to be very important with the Red Devils and they will fight for all the titles available. This season, Manchester United won three titles: Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League.

Morata would play with his colleagues in the Spanish national team David De Gea, Ánder Herrera and Juan Mata. Now, the Red Devils have to negotiate with Real Madrid, because the Spanish club is not willing to sell the striker. The transfer fee will be very high. Actually, Morata will set a new record for a Spanish player.

Real Madrid and Manchester United will play this summer the European Supercup on the 8th of August. Then, Morata could play for the very first time against Real Madrid with the Red Devils. The Spaniard also faced Los Blancos when he played at Juventus, scoring a decisive goal in the semi-finals of the Champions League.
