Arsenal FC Transfer News: United to Stand in the Way of Gunners in Signing Madrid Striker

Manchester United and Arsenal go up against each other in signing Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this coming summer
The Bernabeu starlet was heavily rumoured to be making a move to the Emirates last January, but never materialised because Real was not ready to let go of him.
This time, however, the 21-year-old might personally initiate a transfer as he finds himself out of favour and lying deep in the Los Blancos rotation.
He has played a total of 21 games in all competition for Madrid, but managed to start in only three of those appearances.
The Red Devils are considering Morata as a key addition in David Moyes' attempt to overhaul and strengthen his squad this coming summer.
However, the Gunners would definitely not go down without putting up a fight to sign the promising forward to beef up their attacking line.
Morata is suggested to be valued at £10m, but his stocks might soon rise because of interests shown by England's top clubs.
