Can This Arsenal And Manchester United Target Cope The Pressure Of Premier League?

First it was Arsenal, now it is Manchester United and we would not be surprised if a couple of other top Premier League clubs come into the running to sign Alvaro Morata. The 23-year-old Spaniard is set to re-join Real Madrid after his two year stint with Juventus and the Spanish club would be willing to sell the striker if the right bid comes along.

Morata would be a great striker for any club, but he was overshadowed by his teammate in the striking department, Paulo Dybala last season. Surprisingly, Morata still managed to score 14 goals in all competitions and provided 9 assists for the Old Lady as he celebrated a league win.

The Spaniard would also be part of the Spanish side at the Euros and this would be the perfect time for him to shine and do well, in hopes of getting a better move and playing more regularly. Moving to the Premier League might not be the easiest thing, especially having to negotiate with Real Madrid but Morata could be a great asset if he does come across to England.

A tough forward built for the Premier League-

If there is one thing that describes Morata the best, that would be tenacity. The striker is known for his energy which makes him a threat, even till the last minute. He would be perfect for a high pressing game, something which Juventus did apply for a part of the season and even though Morata’s goal return isn’t the greatest, his overall game is what people should consider.

Morata is a player who loves to dribble and more than that, the 23-year-old is known for his defensive contribution as well. The Spanish star does not get you enough goals, but is a menace to the opposition defence and that in itself should be a reason to sign him up.

His finishing skills aren’t the greatest, but pair him up with someone who can score and run through the channels and paces and you would have an incredible forward line. Morata is also someone who likes to get into a tackle and that would really make the lives of defenders difficult in the Premier League.

While Arsenal are one of the clubs looking to sign him up, the one team that actually would do well with such a striker is Manchester United. Jose Mourinho likes his team to do a lot of defending and having a striker right up top, doing the defending will certainly make United a tough team to play against.

The side also have a lot of pace in Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to play alongside Morata, who can help his partner by knocking the ball down and setting them off. Real Madrid will certainly play hardball for one of the most talented forwards in the game, even if he does not get the goals or the recognition he deserves.

Morata is a beast to deal with and his tenacity and hard work would certainly make him a perfect fit in the Premier League, irrespective of where he does end up.
