The whopping salary United offered Morata

Patrick Power by Patrick Power @rfutbol - 0 8,192

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata came very close to joining Manchester United before Lukaku's arrival. The Red Devils made him an offer hard to turn down...

Even though the centre-forward had decided to leave the Bernabeu, Jose Mourinho grew tired of waiting for Real Madrid and Morata. Manchester United signed Romelu Lukaku as interest in the Spaniard dissipated, and Morata finally decided to fight for a place in Zidane's team.

As revealed by the program 'El Transistor', the United hierarchy were prepared to offer Morata weekly wages of up to £200,000. Or in other words, over £10 million a year after tax.

In the end, Alvaro Morata could not join Mourinho at Manchester United because Real Madrid were reluctant to let one of their goalscorers go easily. Even so, the player is more concerned about the amount of game-time he will get at Madrid than the salary he could have had in England.
