Athlete was close to a deal with the Red Devils
After last season’s failure, Manchester United brought in Dutchman Erik ten Hag to clean up the ‘house’. However, despite good pre-season performances, the team ended up disappointing in their Premier League debut, losing to Brighton 2-1.
And, in the face of this situation, the Red Devils have been investing in the arrival of reinforcements, having, so far, agreed on the arrival of Lisandro Martínez and Christian Eriksen, in addition to having well underway the hiring of the Brazilian Antony.
In addition, with the rumors pointing to a possible departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, the club had also been advancing in the negotiations to sign Marko Arnautovic, known in England for his stints at Stoke City and West Ham.
United fans ‘barred’ Arnautovic’s arrival
However, after several opposing demonstrations by the fans, United was forced to give up on the striker’s arrival. The protests took place due to the lack of ‘weight’ in the name of the athlete to play at the club, as the hiring is focused on someone to assume the position of center forward if Ronaldo leaves the team.
However, after giving up on Arnautovic, United have been monitoring Morata, who in turn has also been detonated by the Red Devils fans. It is worth mentioning that a lot has been said about the possible arrival of Antony to the club, which so far, has not happened.
