Morata better signing than Lukaku or Belotti

June 15, 2017
Jose Mourinho desperately needs to bolster his attacking options this summer. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left Old Trafford after suffering a long-term injury.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney has struggled for regular match action and has been linked with a move to the MLS.

Starsport understands United have turned to Morata after accepting defeat in their pursuit of Everton sensation Lukaku.

Lukaku was Jose Mourinho’s preferred choice to replace Ibrahimovic.

But Meulensteen, who had a stint as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant manager, says Morata is a better bet for United.

“Morata is a good striker but he’s in a situation where he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time”

“Obviously, Lukaku knows the Premier League and has played in the Premier League for many years,” said Meulensteen who was speaking exclusively to 888sport. “He has plenty of power but I’m not too sure he has the kind of DNA that we’d like to see at Manchester United.

“Morata is a good striker but he’s in a situation where he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“I like him though: he is mobile, agile, and creates chances.

“The same can be said of Belotti but both would be coming from abroad and would have to adapt to the Premier League which we all know is difficult. 

“If Belotti comes in it’s important that he scores early and get the monkey off his back.
“Then he could be a good fit.
“For me, though, it would be Morata.
“We haven’t seen enough of him lately but then again it is extremely hard to get into that Real team.”SOURCE: dailystar.co.uk
