Morata cuts honeymoon short to ‘speed up Manchester United transfer’

By Isoccer Staff

Alvaro Morata has cut short his honeymoon in Ibiza as he attempts to seal a move to Manchester United, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

AS report that the Real Madrid striker has flown from Ibiza to his home in Madrid, as transfer negotiations between the two clubs continue.

Morata has spoken several times on the phone with United boss Jose Mourinho and is reportedly keen on a move to the Premier League.

United boss Mourinho has been a fan of Morata since managing him during his three years spent in charge at the Bernabeu.

The Red Devils lodged a bid for Morata last month but Madrid are seeking a fee of £70million for the Spain international.

Mourinho has made signing a new striker a priority at United with Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to be released in the coming days.

United had earlier pursued Antoine Griezmann but the Frenchman opted to sign a new deal with Atletico Madrid after they lost an appeal against their transfer ban.

The Red Devils are also interested in Everton’s Romelu Lukaku but the Belgium international favours a return to his former side Chelsea.

Morata failed to break into Madrid’s first team consistently last season but still managed 15 goals in just 14 La Liga starts.

The forward was in Ibiza with his now wife Alice Campello, who has reportedly remained on the Spanish island while her husband sorts out his next move.

The pair had previously enjoyed the first part of their honeymoon in a romantic getaway on the idyllic Indian ocean island of the Seychelles.

Morata and Campello were married in Venice earlier this month during a lavish wedding ceremony.
