Real Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos insists that the future of club and international teammate, Alvaro Morata is yet unclear, as there have been talks of the 24-year-old leaving Real Madrid this summer to join Manchester United in a £60m move.
Morata has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks, as United have shifted their attention to him following the end to the pursuit of Antoine Griezmann, and Romelu Lukaku being keen on a return to Chelsea.
Sergio Ramos, the charismatic Los Blancos captain insists that he wishes Morata the best for the future, and that any decision to leave the club rests solely on the shoulders of the player himself.
Speaking after the 2-1 on Sunday, as translated by Dailymail, Ramos said: “It will be seen if Morata leaves.
“I have a special affection for him and I always wish him the best. It is not up to me if he stays.”
Morata is keen to leave his boyhood club as he knows that regular playing time will be key if he is to play his part at next year’s mundial to be held in Russia. He has struggled to dislodge Karim Benzema from the starting lineup, and is keen to leave the club he only re-joined last summer.
Morata, who scored in Spain’s 2-2 Colombia last week, but didn’t feature for La Furia Roja in the win over Macedonia, has fueled talk of him joining United as speculations intensify that he has agreed personal terms with Jose Mourinho’s side.
He is a striker known for his movement, pace and excellent technical abilities. He scored 20 times last season for Madrid, winning the league and the UEFA Champions League.
