Everyone thought Alvaro Morata to Man United was a done deal – even Alvaro Morata it seems, so when Jose Mourinho’s side opted for Romelu Lukaku, people were pretty shocked.
However, it wasn’t just Chelsea who were left looking a bit silly – according to Marca at least, who saw a photo of Morata on his Instagram page with very short hair indeed – that looked like it had been dyed red.
That led them to claim Morata obviously dyed his hair thinking he was going to United – but then saw it fall through, s shaved his head.
Reaching much? You decide:
Of course, all of this sounds suspiciously like David De Gea and his white suit, that he had prepared while sat in his girlfriend’s house in Madrid, before a fax machine failure ruined his dreams.
Said suit may be coming out of storage in the not too distant future, with Real Madrid thought to be keen on the player once again, and making moves to try and land him.
Mourinho and United are determined to keep their number one, and it may well be in 12 months time that the real battle for De Gea takes place, when there is only a year left on his contract.
