Alvaro Morata’s Man United move
The Spanish media appear to be gearing up for the official confirmation of Alvaro Morata’s Man United move.
After weeks of speculation in which the likes of Chelsea and AC Milan have also been linked to Morata, Spanish radio station Cadena Ser have reported on Tuesday that the striker’s transfer to Old Trafford could be completed “today or tomorrow”.
Man United are refreshing their attack after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic from the Theatre of Dreams.
It’s also possible that after the Morata deal closes, United shell out another huge sum of money on Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.
Great news for Getafe
Following the news that Morata’s United deal is imminent, the Spanish press have reflected on how the deal benefits Getafe too.
Morata was at Getafe between 2007 and 2008, and the club are set for a windfall from the United deal.
The president of Getafe, Angel Torres, appeared on Spanish radio station Onda Cero on Monday night, and he spoke about how his club will earn money from the Morata transfer.
Torres revealed that Getafe have already received three payments for Morata since his departure from the club after the club carved out rights to between 0.25% and 5% for future sales of the striker.
AS try to predict just how much Getafe will earn from the deal:
If Madrid sell to Morata for a hypothetical 70 million, 175,000 euros would go to Getafe ; If they sell it for 90, it would be 225,000 euros.
