The deal will reportedly cost United a massive €73m which surely is the highest ever paid for a player who is not even in the first team of his club. Clubs around Europe know that Manchester United are flush with cash and are desperate to return to their old success and take advantage of this. United have been overpaying for the past four years consistently but still are failing on the pitch. One area where they have been successfully is fully exploiting the brand they have built for themselves. Woodward has ensured that United remain at the top of the money league in the world.
Morata has not been a prolific goalscorer in his career so far but Mourinho must be hoping that this changes as United had a hard time scoring goals in the last season.
