It sounds like the Morata deal is happening. I think he will be a good addition. He is young, mobile, technical, intelligent, has good size, and has performed well at both Juventus and Real Madrid.

225 k a week being reported. saying belotti asked for griezeman salary of 300k . maybe tabloid nonsense.

Timing of the Morata news if confirmed might take some of the sting out of Ibra moving on for some people if its announced -

Dont know much about Morata or Belotti to be honest.

My choice would be amyadingdong but that's not likely, only as I've been impressed with him each time I've seen him -some say he is a flaky character though.

09 Jun 2017 14:09:59
I seem to get the feeling we're in for both of them not just one or the other.

Has Morata been known to play out wide or is he just a central striker?

09 Jun 2017 14:13:13
Is there a sting from Zlatan moving on? He is injured until the new year and slowed down our attack all year, he had a good season for us goals wise but we would be absolutely mad to give him a new deal IMO.

09 Jun 2017 14:23:52
Dave, I would love it if United went for both the players, but I don't think that would happen. What makes you say that?

09 Jun 2017 14:43:32
Hi. not been on here for ages, Still a few that I recognise.
I just wanted to agree with GDS2.
I can't fault Ibra for the season he had but I felt he did slow our attack down a lot of the time.
I also think he's a very big personality in the dressing room and noticed that he was pulling rank over players when taking free kicks and penalties.
He's not going to be fit until the new year and it makes no sense paying someone 300 grand a week for the remainder of that season. Definitely time to move him on now
In my opinion we need a top centre forward, a top central defensive midfielder so the shackles can be taken off Pogba and let him get forward more.
We also need another centre back.

Nothing really just a feeling. There's some reports stating Morata is close and ed002 has said we have a 3rd party involved in trying to secure a deal for belotti

So 2+2 = 5 probably 😂.

09 Jun 2017 14:52:46
No sting from me GDS2,but I saw more than a few on here yesterday saying he still had a part to play - i say thank you and get him off wage bill.

09 Jun 2017 14:59:53
I'm not one for worrying about the money the club spends but around £70m for a player who was worth £26m only 12 months ago and has sat on the bench since, seems ridiculous.

09 Jun 2017 15:12:19
Makes sense to go for 2 forwards with Ibra leaving. A replacement for him plus one more.

09 Jun 2017 15:20:12
Hahah! Yeah. I thought maybe you knew something that none of us did.

I hope we do get them both. It would be quite a solid front line.

Love the math! :D.

09 Jun 2017 15:25:32
I've seen a few reports that we're in for both. Seems a bit odd but with Zlatan and Rooney both seemingly off, it would do no harm in having 2 new forwards come in.
Belotti is an out and out no.9 but Morata has a bit more to his game so not identical signings.

09 Jun 2017 16:48:47
I'd prefer the one. Simply because I believe it means more playing time for rash. Unless Jose is looking for a different formation where both belotti and morata play together. But I can't see that happening.

09 Jun 2017 17:52:30
Welcome back Simo, love when some familiar names from the past come back on here, hope all is well. I remember we didn't agree on much in the past, a rest must have done you some good ;)

I wouldn't mind if we signed both Belotti and Morata if that is even an option. If we are losing zlatan and Rooney then no reason why we don't replace both of them and they are 2 players who could be brilliant for us.

Wasn't many of us moaning in 99 when we had Yorke, Cole, Solskjaer and Teddy, I wouldn't be moaning if our striker options turned out to be Morata, Rashford, Belotti and Martial, we have plenty of games to rotate. Not saying it will happen but it wouldn't annoy me if it did. Obviously not at the expense of other positions we need though, so I am guessing it will be one or the other.

09 Jun 2017 17:53:36
Welcome back simo👍
Id rather sign morata and buy greizman in jan.

09 Jun 2017 18:48:23
i wouldn't rule out a short contract if Zlatan can get fit by January 2018.

09 Jun 2017 18:54:31
Zidaniel, he has good size. 🙄.

09 Jun 2017 19:12:50
Exactly right the more we have to choose from the better. Rashford started lots of games last season and his goal return was not amazing.
Lots of potential and talent but we can't wait forever for him to be the player we require.

I remember once somebody saying what a great player Cleverly will become! There are many more to add to that list but no point as we all know who they are.
Just saying that Manchester United should not be sitting by hoping youngsters come good while other teams take the top players on and win the awards.

For the record i love Rashford and would be absolutley delighted if he scored a shitload next season and became a top player.

09 Jun 2017 21:50:43
Get them both in and switch to a diamond 442. Enough game time for them and Rashford to play upfront.

10 Jun 2017 12:05:45
To be honest, it is not surprising that Man United released Zlatan at the moment. However, when he is fit, I would not rule out Zlatan getting a contract like Valdes.

11 Jun 2017 12:25:56

Morata was worth a lot more than 25 mil mate even last year and you confuse a buyback clause to market value. He is mobile, really smart with his runs, good finisher and can set up goals and 24 years old. In this market very hard to get strikers like that. hope we get it done early.

Lukaku at 90 is what i don't want us to ever go near. Hope Chelsea buys him as it is a poor mans version of Costa at double the price :)
