Alvaro Morata has generated an all new wave of rumours, after the Spanish striker liked an Instagram post that suggested he could be joined at Manchester United by his Madrid teammates, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez.
Morata has been dropping off hints in recent months about leaving Los Blancos, and is now reportedly very close to making his switch to Old Trafford from Spain. He has been struggling for game time with the European champions, despite netting 15 league goals this season.
The Spanish international is said to be trying to convince both Bale and Rodriguez to join him at United next season, while some reports also suggest that James’ step-father has pushed for the midfielder to leave the Spanish side this summer. Also, Rodriguez himself is said to prefer a move to Manchester United.
But the ‘like’ that’s got everyone talking came on an Instagram account manchester___united___fans , after they shared a post stating that the Spaniard was set to join the Red Devils next season, and also added that he was convincing Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez to come with him.
