Premier League giants, Manchester United have been offered the chance to secure services of former Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata as a solution to their goalscoring issues.

The Erik ten Hag era began in shambolic fashion on Sunday as the Red Devils were humiliated at Old Trafford by a Brighton who were full value for their 2-1 victory.

The 20-times English champions had enjoyed an encouraging pre-season on the pitch, however, the cohesion they displayed during victories over the Crystal Palace and Liverpool, in particular, was in short supply as they delivered a chaotic and confused performance.

Ten Hag has struggled to attract a number of his top transfer targets in the summer and a failure to strengthen the club’s attacking line forced the ex-Ajax manager to field Christian Eriksen in an unfamiliar false nine role against the Seagulls.

The ongoing rumours surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo’s future has, meanwhile, cast a show over the start to Ten Hag’s tenure, while an injury to Anthony Martial has provided another headache.

According to ESPN, United have been offered the opportunity to lure Spanish forward Alavaro Morata back to the Premier League.


The Spain international was keen on to make a move to Old Trafford, however, he eventually joined Chelsea, while Romelu Lukaku, who had been on the brink of returning to Stamford Bridge, moved to Old Trafford where he failed to convince.

Alvaro Morata spent two tough campaigns in west London and struggled to adapt to the physical demands of English football.

The 29-year-old forward has since endured something of a nomadic career which has taken in loan spells at both Atletico Madrid and Juventus.

Morata has been deemed suprlus to requirements by Atleico Madrid, however, and with just one year left on his current deal is being offered to various team around Europe.

The 20-times English champions are also interested in securing the services of PSV Eindhoven’s 23-year-old forward Cody Gakpo who is believed to be keen on joining the Red Devils.
