Does anyone else remember when it looked like we were certain to signed him so he dyed his hair red cos he was all excited and then we binned him off and bought Lukaku?

Poor Alvaro. I hope he still has the dye handy, I think he's gonna need it.

Don’t buy him. Loan him like Juventus did every time they wanted him

Shite finisher but I think he's an alright striker. Far from happy with signing him but don't think he's as bad as people make out. I've tended to think his all round play is good and he's a hard worker. Doesn't have the pace of Welbeck but the sort of player I think can cause problems without being a real threat himself. Not high praise but it has its uses.

Had a wiki-up. He's never been a goal machine, has he?
He's a pretty mediocre (at best) finisher, but provided something like a goal or assist every 130 mins last season. Not fantastic, not terrible. His allround game is great, though

Of all the washed up, clubs can't wait to get rid of, not trained on, bad egg, sort of players that we have opened the door to been linked to, then Morata is probably the one I'd be least depressed about us signing.

I’d take him just to bolster our striker options. He will offer some kind of depth at least. We can’t be going into games with Eriksen as false 9. I know he’s been a meme at times but he’s better than he showed at Chelsea.

Morata wouldn't be bounced around annually like it's a tradition if he was that better
Memphis has been at Lyon and now Barca are desperate to get rid. It’s hardly a positive in the Memphis column.

The less shitter option is Morata. Neither are great.

Yeah, playing for Chelsea, Real Madrid, Juventus and A.Madrid proves that he's poor eh!?

Barcelona bought 3 strikers in the past 6 months, they need to get rid of wages.

He was still their top scorer and is actually being chased after by the club Morata has played for the past 2 seasons and aren't in for his permanent signature this summer.

I don't believe that Morata is better at all.

Why didn't any of those clubs sign him up for more than a year at a time?

If he was as good as you think he'd have found a real home years ago
