Erik ten Hag still has a problem in his hands after Anthony Martial suffered a hamstring injury last Thursday that prevented him to play the opening game of the season against Brighton & Hove Albion. Cristiano Ronaldo wasn’t fully match-fit, so he didn’t start the game. After not having any strikers at his disposal, the manager had to improvise and play with Christian Eriksen as a “false 9”.

The time Martial will be off with the injury is still unknown, so the only centre-forward fit to play is Cristiano Ronaldo, whose future is still in the air. For this reason, Manchester United have been on the lookout for a striker in the transfer market. The first option was Marko Arnautović, but after Bologna rejected the first bid, the club is now looking for alternatives.

According to Rob Dawson from ESPN, the Red Devils have now been offered the chance of signing Alvaro Morata by some intermediaries. Although Morata meets the characteristics of a physical striker that Ten Hag has in mind, Jason Burt from The Daily Telegraph added that it is very unlikely that the club makes an offer for him.

Alvaro Morata flopped at Chelsea

Back in 2017, the Spanish striker signed for Chelsea. The Blues thought they had a gem on their hands, but things didn’t go as expected because Morata struggled to adapt to English football. The forward began to miss some easy goals for someone who had cost almost €70 million and became a meme on social media by rival fans. A year and a half later, he was loaned out to Atletico Madrid and ended up buying him after the loan expired.
