United's Morata Bid Rejected

Wed Jun 07, 2017 2:25 am

Manchester United's £52.4m bid for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata rejected
By Sky Sports News HQ

Last Updated: 06/06/17 11:22pm

Real Madrid have rejected a £52.4m (€60m) offer for striker Alvaro Morata from Manchester United, Sky in Italy understand.

United goalkeeper David de Gea was not included in the offer, while Real Madrid are thought to want in the region of £78m for the forward.

The Spain international scored 20 goals in all competitions for Real last season, as the club clinched La Liga and the Champions League.

If Manchester United fail to agree a deal for Morata, it is understood they will try to sign Andrea Belotti from Torino, who has a €100m (£87.3m) release clause in his contract.

Born in Madrid, Morata progressed through the Real Madrid academy to make his first team debut in December 2010, before exiting for Juventus in the summer of 2014 for £17.5m.

In two seasons with Juventus, Morata won two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles and was part of a run to the 2015 Champions League final, scoring as Juve lost 3-1 to Barcelona.

In June 2016, Real Madrid exercised a buy-back clause to bring Morata back from Juventus for £26.2m, and the forward has emerged as a key member of Zinedine Zidane's squad.

He is hardly prolific - 0.36 goals per game (N)

No thanks

If 50 mil isn't enough to buy a player like Morata then it's official the football world has gone insane. And if this is true hopefully we are priced out of another bid, not worth it at all.

Of course, it could simply be Real playing hard ball as a response to us denying them signing De Gea.

Our prolific goal scoring record last season has any team with anything close to a goal scorer licking their chops because they know we are in a desperate state and therefore even just above average player are going to cost us a bundle.

Take another look at your stats David.
The 0.36 goals per game is based on the number of games he's played and goals he's scored since way back in 2010 when he was 18 years old and playing with Real's B team.
This season with Real he was second fiddle to Benzema and still managed to score 15 goals in 14 starts and 12 sub appearances in La Liga along with a few assists. Those are pretty good figures for a second choice striker plus he scored 3 goals in the Champions League and a couple in the Copa.
I first noticed him when he played for Juve, mainly in their Champion's League games, thought he was a damn good player and based on what I saw of him this season with Real, he seems even better than when he was at Juve.
I wouldn't be so quick to write him of as a player who could do well at United.

Your post adds good context and insight, if he is as good as the latter stats suggest then perhaps he is worth considering.

You must get a real rush out of taking such an unnecessary and cheap shot at one of the more inoffensive members on the board :clap:

He does appear to have a reasonable record in the last few seasons, but it's not the record of someone that I'd be looking to splash over £50 million on.
