Rooney To Real Madrid? Morata To Arsenal? – From Real Madrid’s Point Of View

Alvaro Morata to Arsenal?


Alvaro Morata has been linked with a loan move to Arsenal, and while this would be a great chance for Morata to get some valuable minutes under his belt, selling him would be a very bad move on the part of Real Madrid. The 21-year old has the ability to play as a striker or on the wings, and was part of the U21 Euro winning Spanish side earlier this summer, and will be an asset for Madrid in the long term.

Madrid are currently trailing the leaders Barcelona and Atletico Madrid by 5 points, and squad depth will be important once Champions League resumes. Allowing Morata to leave on without finding an adequate replacement may jeopardize Madrid’s chances of winning a trophy this season. He, along with fellow Castilla graduate Jese, have an important role to play as squad players, and Morata will get playing time in the Copa del Rey. While it may not be enough for the young striker, it will have to do unless Madrid sign another striker in January.

Carlo Ancelotti will undoubtedly wait till the summer to make a big-money move for a world-class striker, and has stated that no player would be allowed to leave in January. Wayne Rooney could indeed end up in Madrid in the summer, but selling the youngster to fund the deal would be a mistake. Instead, loaning him out for next season would ensure that he gets the minutes he needs to continue his development.
