Morata prefers Manchester United move because of Mourinho


Juventus striker Alvaro Morata has been linked with a move away from Italy this summer and the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal are interested in the Spaniard.

Morata previously claimed that Italy might not be the ideal place for strikers and that Bundesliga and the Premier League would suit his style very well.

Arsenal have been long-term admirers of the former Real Madrid star but now Guardian are reporting that Morata prefers a move to Manchester United because of the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

The Old Trafford outfit are set to present Mourinho as their manager this week and it appears that his arrival is already making a big difference in terms of transfers. It is important to remember that Arsenal can offer European football and even then the player prefers to play under Mourinho.

The Spanish international is likely to cost around 40 million pounds. The fee will not be an issue for Manchester United or Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have also been linked with a move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The PSG striker is all set to leave Ligue 1 this summer.
