Man United fans glad they didn’t sign Morata after absence through fatigue

Former Manchester United target Alvaro Morata is set to miss Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Tuesday night through fatigue, and Red Devils fans are happy the club didn’t sign him.

The Spaniard revealed in an interview with the Daily Mail in September that he had an offer to join United as he looked to leave Real Madrid in search of regular first-team football, but Jose Mourinho eventually brought in Romelu Lukaku from Everton instead with Morata moving to Stamford Bridge.

The striker has gone on to score 10 goals in all competitions for the Blues this term, while the Belgium international has 13 in total for the Red Devils.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the absence of their former target via social media, and while one said “I’m still glad United signed Lukaku over Morata”, another believes the club “dodged a bullet” by not getting him.
