Morata heavily linked to us.

Agree8 Disagree7

04 Jun 2017 06:21:36
I think he's the type of number 9 striker we need younger strong quite quick hits the target alot! Just real are going to ask for to much for him!

04 Jun 2017 09:59:33
Statezz I think he be prefect for us once under 50 million . we have been missing a clinical striker like this.

04 Jun 2017 10:33:24
He is very hit and miss and just what we don't want and the price being banded about is laughable.

04 Jun 2017 11:19:09
What would you price him at Eric take in to consideration the market. I think a good run and he could be 20 goal a season player.

04 Jun 2017 11:31:42
Eric name me a striker whos got 20 goals in all competitions with only starting 15 games for me he can be like a young torres given the chance!

04 Jun 2017 11:35:54
If its true the lad at Dortmund Aboydamadingdong is available at 70 mill I would take him all day long- done it for a few seasons now, fast strong and knows where the goal is.

04 Jun 2017 11:43:39
When will these Morata rumours go away. He's not good enough.

04 Jun 2017 11:55:19
Why is morata not good enough I am asking as he seems to score alot.

04 Jun 2017 13:03:20
Less exposure i think. If United signed Morata last season instead, the fans would be buzzing.

04 Jun 2017 13:19:17
Never rated him myself. Hope we steer clear of the next Morientes.

04 Jun 2017 15:02:21
His style is nothing like Morientes though Beast.

04 Jun 2017 15:17:54
Who was actually very good. Morata is a better player than Lukaku. So if it is one over the other, I choose the Spaniard.

04 Jun 2017 15:27:25
I agree eric.

04 Jun 2017 15:29:51
We should really be looking at Lewandowski or Cavani. Both of them powerful and have the ability to get you a goal from no where and both of them also clinical in front of goal. Benzema should be an option, it depends if Real buy Mbappe I think, then Benzema may be on the way out.
Dybala would be another option for me too, he's got it all and I would want him ahead of Morata n Mbappe.

04 Jun 2017 15:47:52
Morata is not better than Lukaku. If he's that good why is he sat on Real's bench? Why are they so keen to get rid? Why hasn't he been signed by a top club already?

His record at Juve was poor. For RM he comes on against teams who have already rolled over in a league where the top 2 are so far ahead of the rest.

04 Jun 2017 16:12:15
You have to look at the teams united dropped points against the mid table teams united wasted chance after chance this season i think he would be a great signing at right price.

{Ed004's Note - I would probably prefer Lukaku to Morata tbh. Atleast we know Lukaku will score 25/30 goals for us in the league next season. The only players at Madrid I would look at would be Varane, Kroos or Bale as I think they would be the only ones we could persuade to leave}

04 Jun 2017 16:42:52
Ed004 can you really see a possibility of bale I honestly hope I am wrong but just can't see it happening.

{Ed004's Note - I can't see it happening either. Unfortunately I can't see any other player available that'll take us up another level. Maybe it would be best for us to sort out defence and midfield this window and in January/Summer look to Griezmann or someone else who will take us up a level. Mkhitaryan/Mata, Rasford/New striker and Martial/Lingard are still good options}

04 Jun 2017 17:24:25
Ed004, do you think we have any chance of Kroos or Varane?

{Ed004's Note - Unfortunately very little. I think Kroos would be the more likely there though. We would probably have to insist on one with any deal with Madrid for De Gea}

04 Jun 2017 17:57:56
Morata's goal scoring stats in all comps=
2012/ 13 - 15 games, 2 goals
2013/ 14 - 34 games, 9 goals

2014/ 15 - 46 games, 15 goals
2015/ 16 - 47 games, 12 goals

2016/ 17 - 43 games, 20 goals

Conclusion - Morata does not score a lot of bloody goals for a forward intop class teams.

04 Jun 2017 18:16:44
Isn't Morata off to Milan.

04 Jun 2017 18:49:43
Just to compare I'll put Lukaku's stats over the same period.
West Brom (loan)
2012/ 13 - 38 games, 17 goals

Everton (loan)
2013/ 14 - 33 games, 16 goals

2014/ 15 - 48 games, 20 goals
2015/ 16 - 46 games, 25 goals
2016/ 17 - 39 games, 26 goals

Conclusion - similar age to Morata, playing in lesser teams, scores far more goals, constant progression in numbers. Basically to even think the two are comparable is doing Lukaku a dis-service.

{Ed001's Note - difference is, Lukaku is the main focal point in the teams he plays for, Morata is not. Lukaku probably gets a lot more great chances than Morata, against teams that are not packing the defence, unlike those teams that face Morata. To even put those numbers up like that, with so little attempt to provide any context is a disservice to all of us.}

04 Jun 2017 19:11:58
Ouch 001, I'm off to hang my head in shame.

{Ed001's Note - just saying mate, there are always two sides to the coin. Yes Lukaku scores goals, but he is the sole focal point of the teams he plays for. Morata is not, so you can't just use those stats alone. I mean it would be easy to pull out stats about how Lukaku covers less distance than just about any player in the Premier League, or a hundred other points that could swing it the other way. That is why I prefer to avoid stats, unless you have time to provide a full context to them, which is damn near impossible.}

04 Jun 2017 20:38:50
Also looking at games played is misleading, as you can come on in extra time and it still counts as an appearance. I suspect if you looked at minutes per goal ratio Morata would come out on top. I saw a stat last week that said Morata has the best goals per minute ratio in Europe's top five leagues.

Morata for me is the better all round player, his movement is smarter, his finishing more clinical, and he is better with his back to goal. The only thing Lukaku has over him is he is proven in the EPL even if there are still questions over his lack of goals against top six sides. Both seem to suffer from disappearing from time to time. But Morata will cost around 30m less than Lukaku. So we would be paying an extra 30m plus probably having our pants pulled down over wages by Riola to sign a player who is proven in our league. I don't think it's worth it.

04 Jun 2017 21:26:42
Have to realise that Madrid ain't going to do business with us if we don't sell De Gea to them

I don't want Griezmann anytime now or in the future, so the impression I get he going to sign a new contract, so he plays us like chumps, you might have the talent but you don't have heart for this team, go and join the other Madrid team or Chelsea next summer.

04 Jun 2017 21:34:06
I'll be happy with either! Although I prefer Morata.

04 Jun 2017 22:55:56
We couldn't persuade varane to leave when he wasn't in the team now that he is i reckon we have no chance.
Wazza. Why isn't lukaku at a big club? He was and they let him go. He doesn't do well against the top sides.
I am not arguing for one over the other. For me they are very different players. I think me morata is a better all round player and is a better link player but lukaku might score half a dozen more goals.
My gut instinct says if it's one or the other I'd rather take a risk on morata he has a decent record and is used to a big club winning mentality.

06 Jun 2017 10:39:26
Morata will join Chelsea!
