Manchester United join the race for Alvaro Morata



Manchester United have reportedly joined the race for Juventus striker Alvaro Morata.

According to reports from Tuttosport, relayed by Sport Witness, Manchester United and Arsenal are showing an interest in the 23-year-old Spain striker.

Tuttosport explains that Real Madrid still have a better chance of signing their former player than other potential suitors. 

The La Liga giants have a discount clause in the deal which allow them to sign Morata at €30m in 2016 or €35m in 2017. 

For clubs apart from Real Madrid, the transfer fee would be around €80m. 

Manchester United have been involved in some big money transfers in recent years, but hard to see them paying such ridiculous money for Morata, who has scored only once in 18 appearances for Juventus this season. 

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Morata as well, with Jurgen Klopp looking to sign the Spain international to replace Daniel Sturridge.
