Alvaro Morata's Wife May Have Dropped A Major Hint About Manchester United Move
| Last updated
It is a transfer deal that seems to have been rumbling on all summer, but Alvaro Morata's proposed £70 million move to Manchester United may be reaching it's conclusion.
At least, if the Spanish striker's wife's latest actions are anything to go by.
Alice Campello, who Morata recently married, has dropped the ultimate modern football transfer hint by following the club her husband is strongly rumoured to be joining, on Instagram.

Weeks ago, many reports suggested that Morata to United was a done deal, with a fee of £52 million being bandied about by several media outlets.
However, there seems to have been little to no movement with the move and Morata still remains a Los Blancos player.

Marca reported over the weekend that negotiations between United officials and Morata had gathered pace, with the former Juventus striker informing Real manager Zinedine Zidane of his desire to leave the Bernabeu in order to gain more regular first team football.
Despite Zidane's attempts at convincing Morata to remain with the Spanish and European champions, Morata appears to have made up his mind about a switch to Old Trafford, and Campello's recent social media activity may have just confirmed that the deal is imminent.
Marca have also reported that Morata wants his future to be resolved by the time he returns from holiday, this week, with United and Real still to come to terms on a fee for the 24-year-old, who scored 20 goals last season despite making many of his 43 appearances from the bench.
