Ex-president insists Man United could shock fans by stunning double transfer

June 19, 2017

According to the former Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon, Manchester United re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Los Blancos would not affect the transfer of Alvaro Morata.

Man United have been heavily linked with both players recently as the manager Jose Mourinho is widely expected to major revamp his attacking options in this summer’s transfer window.

The veteran superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has already left Old Trafford after not being offered an extension to his one-year contract, and the 24-year-old Alvaro Morata looked for a long time like being the Swede’s primary replacement.

However, recent reports of Cristiano Ronaldo’s unhappiness in Madrid have opened up the chance of Jose Mourinho swooping for him as well, and Ramon Calderon sees no reason why the Portuguese returning to Old Trafford should prevent Alvaro Morata following him.

When the former Real Madrid president was asked by The Sun if he felt the two cases were linked, Calderon replied: ‘Alvaro Morata is not happy at Real Madrid.

‘He hasn’t played and it’s the kind of deal and agreement which is great for all sides. The player, Manchester United and Real Madrid. All parties will be very happy with the deal.’ He added.
