Done Deal! ‘Arsenal Have Signed Alvaro Morata’ – Reports

By on May 28, 2014

Some interesting news circulating this evening with reports in Spain claiming that Arsenal have reached an agreement to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.

We have been strongly linked with Morata over the past 12 months and were reportedly close to signing him on a six-month loan deal back in January until Carlo Ancelotti vetoed the deal at the last minute.

However, it seems Wenger has kept in touch as Spanish source La Informacion is reporting today that the boss has in fact been in regular contact with the strikers father and representative, Juanma Lopez, since last summer and a deal has now finally been agreed to bring him to the Emirates this summer.

The report claims that Arsenal have been negotiating with Madrid and came to an agreement days before last weeks Champions League final, but the Spaniard’s have insisted on a buy-back clause which will be active for the next two years.

No fee has been mentioned in the report, but La Informacion does say that the buy-back option has ‘cheapened’ the deal for Arsenal and it should be officially announced within the next couple of days.

Morata decided to quit the Bernabeu due to a lack of first team opportunities as he started just 6 games last season, and if this report is accurate, the 21-year-old will now compete with Olivier Giroud up front at the Emirates next season.

It’s difficult to know how reliable La Informacion are but they did get the Ozil transfer correct last summer and don’t appear to be too ‘speculative’ with their transfer gossip.

Fingers crossed this turns out to be true as Morata would be a great signing. I’m not particularly happy about the idea of a buy-back clause though, as it leaves us vulnerable if the striker is a success in north London, but we’ll have to see what happens.

    optimistics are living for ever but pestimistics are not, so wenger is an elite coach from the world. Alvaro Morata is young player and he is crucial to Arsenal FC.

    And we all wish them a very good luck for their future. An mean Indian does relish
    the entertainment provided by movies and looks forwards to extra
    releases. Modelled after the poll-based merit format of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, individuals may submit their
    votes in separate categories. Among these, Light of Asia,
    about the Buddha, and Shiraz about the origins of the
    Taj Mahal, referred to as ‘Romances from India’ by their producers,
    render “India” as a startling, exotic assemblage: scenes of ancient and medieval
    court life, attended by the ritual of courtly gesture, and by spectacular processions of elephants
    and camels, are juxtaposed with a glittering naturalism.

    I have recently seen at least three near me and went to all three, all of were quality gyms
    with a stable of professional fighters who actually compete.
    However, both the wins that the Pakistanis achieved were achieved largely
    due to individual brilliances and they’ll look to put in a better team effort in the
    decider. Whether it is understanding field settings or practicing a specific skill like catching
    in the slips, coaching software can provide drills that can be assembled into a session plan before each training session.
