Mourinho clearly sees him as the player most capable in the summer transfer market to take over from Ibrahimovic up front, and although he won’t be able to match what the big Swede brought to the players around him, Morata will be able to score goals and play at Old Trafford for a long time.
Morata is only 24, and although he hasn’t had the true run of games he desperately deserves, it’s clear he has all the attributes to go on and become a top player under the manager who previously gave him his debut at Real in 2010.
