Morata asks Bale to join United


Alvaro Morata is urging his Real Madrid midfielder, Gareth Bale, to join him in the transfer to Manchester United this summer.

The Spanish striker will reportedly fly to England on Monday to complete his major transfer from La Liga champions.

According to Don Balon, Morata is said to have said he believes the Welsh team will add an additional dimension to the upcoming Red Devils season.

United was close to transferring Bale when he decided to leave Spurs in 2013 – but was rejected by Real Madrid’s £ 86m high bid.

And Morata is said to have called his “great friend” to join him at Old Trafford for next season, while Bale can easily accept the departure as he is not playing regularly at Real.
