Fletcher Remains Calm Despite Chaos In Club

Fans of Manchester United were thrilled to see David Moyes being sacked after an awful season as the Scottish manger could never gain support for the fanatics of the Premier League. Louis van Gaal was the man selected to restore the pride and turn Manchester United into the club that they were some years ago but the Dutch coach has only been picking up disappointing results so far.

Morata Future Remains Uncertain

As each season passes along the future of Alvaro Morata keeps on remaining uncertain as the young product of the Spanish club has only been able on making 37 league appearances for Real Madrid since 2010 when he was promoted to the senior squad.

Arsenal is desperate to land Morata as they have been trying to sign him for the past couple of transfer windows but things can take a huge turn if the young attacker decides to leave the club and join a team where his chances of performing are higher.

With players such as C.Ronaldo, Karin Benzema and Gareth Bale all leading the attacking department of Real Madrid, it does not seem like Morata’s chances of playing a pivotal role in the Santiago Bernabeu will arrive anytime soon and making a switch to Arsenal could give a boost to his career.

Manchester United’s Danny Welbeck has emerged as a target of Carlo Ancelotti as the Italian manager of Real Madrid is believed to have been impressed by the versatility of Welbeck and could launch an offer for him just in case Alvaro Morata does make his way to Arsenal.

Ancelotti would not want to cut down his attacking options and with the possible departure of Morata from the club could see Danny Welbeck turn into a viable summer target for Real Madrid.

If Danny Welbeck does arrive to the Santiago Bernabeu he is being viewed as a quality back-up option whenever Carlo Ancelotti needs him in case of an injury of anything of that matter while Alvaro Morata will be given the chance to fulfill his potential in a club where he can get into the first team.
