Morata was spotted earlier today back with his wife on honeymoon in Ibiza. Reports from the Daily Express say that he’s told his friends the deal is done.
Two days ago Morata took a break in his honeymoon in Ibiza to fly back to Madrid to have crunch talks with Florentino Perez ahead of his potential move to Manchester United. Perez values the player at £70mil but Mourinho sees Morata being worth closer to £60mil.
Alvaro was rumoured to have flown into Manchester on a private jet yesterday to complete the deal. It seems increasingly likely that the rumours were inaccurate with the deal still not confirmed and no sightings of the player being in Manchester. It could however, have been a player’s representatives; which player remains to be seen!
In any case, the talks between Morata and clubs have been concluded with the player back with his newly wedded wife. Does this mean the player will be confirmed on completion of his Honeymoon? The player has reportedly told his friends the deal is done; so expect more rumours from this transfer story to rumble on in the press for the next few days.
This would be the biggest transfer of the summer so far. Man Utd need an efficient striker after the departure of Ibrahimovic and they don’t come much more efficient than Morata.
Enjoy your honeymoon Alvaro, then get over to Manchester to complete the deal and put United fans out of the mercy of the media.
