Transfer Balls: Alvaro Morata Is Free To Arsenal, Spurs And Manchester United After Signing For Juventus
TRANSFER Balls: A look at Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata in the British Press.
Today the Sun tells readers:
ARSENAL have been handed a massive transfer boost with the news that Alvaro Morata is free to leave Real Madrid.
Arsene Wenger has been hot on the heels of the Spanish Under-21 youngster for six months. And now the Gunners have been given the green light to make a move after Real boss Carlo Ancelotti revealed the club are happy to sanction the whizkid’s exit.
What did the Italian coach say?
“The player wants to play more minutes and the club agrees. If he could find the chance of playing it would be good that he had the chance for a year. If Morata goes then we’ll have to think about signing a similar striker with the same characteristics, a youngster.”
If he goes away for a year?
This is a scoop? It’s just that on May 29, the Daily Express said:
Arsenal will beat Tottenham and Manchester United to the signing of Alvaro Morata after agreeing a buy-back clause in a deal with Real Madrid.
And the Star told us all that Morata joined Arsenal back in December 2013:
“Spurs want ‘new Gareth Bale’ Alvaro Morata included in Real deal for Welshman”
So. Arsenal want the new Bale. But they won’t get him. Why? Because the Star told us on May 31 2014:
