Juventus ace to pass on Man United move if forced to play behind Zlatan

Posted by

While Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s potential move to Old Trafford would be a major boost for Manchester United in 2016, it may prevent them from signing other available players. Juventus superstar Alvaro Morata, for an example, has been linked with a possible move to Man United but per reports has serious reservations about being on the same team as Zlatan.

According to ESPN FC, Morata will outright refuse a transfer to Man United if the team completes a move for the 34-year-old Swedish scoring machine. Zlatan is believed to have a deal in principle with Man United and could sign on the dotted line as early as this weekend.

Morata played under Man United manager Jose Mourinho during their time together at Real Madrid – but he likely knows from experience that Mourinho prefers starting more experienced players.

The Spanish striker 15 league goals and 27 total goals for Juventus over the past two seasons. Zlatan, however, scored 38 league goals and 50 total goals in the 2015-16 season alone for PSG.
