Reason why Madrid refuse to sell Morata to Man Utd revealed

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata was subjected to a likely move to Old Trafford with the striker agreeing to personal terms with the club before a last-minute collapse of the move.

Jose Mourinho has been a fan of the player, he gave the forward his Real Madrid debut during his time as Real Madrid coach.

According to reports in the Express, the move to seal a deal with the Manchester United was blocked by Real Madrid as they were increasingly nervous and concerned that they are letting a world class player slip off their hold.

Real Madrid was also warned by their former player and coach Vicente Del Bosque ‘What is good for him is mainly that he plays but I think he is doing very well at Real Madrid,’ Del Bosque, who managed Morata from 2014 to 2016, stated.

‘It is a shame if he leaves, but I have always said that it is an enrichment factor for our football that our players have been able to go abroad and have been able to play.

‘It will not be a problem for the Spanish team.’ He said.

This led to Jose Mourinho and United to turn their attentions to Romelu Lukaku, who of course snubbed Chelsea for the chance to join United.
