Real’s Morata turned Irons down

We hear Real Madrid’s giant striker Alvaro Morata was very much on the West Ham  radar along with so many others back in the summer but decided to take his chance at the Bernebeu.

The 6ft 3 in striker was a B team regular and just as the Irons thought they had a deal in the bag , the 21 year old pulled the plug on a move.

Instead of moving to the east end, he kept his focus on the Real first team and the result is he’s now made 10 appearances and scoring twice this season.

Another good try which failed!!!
