Manchester United plot January move for world-class striker

By Mark Peters IN Archive,General - 20:00 Jan 22nd 2016

Manchester United have not been at their best for large swathes of the current campaign, yet they remain within seven points of the Premier League summit.

An inability to score goals is what has held the Red Devils back this season, so they are determined to bring in a world-class striker in order to aid their push for the title.

ALVARO MORATA

According to reports in the Metro, Alvaro Morata is seen as a realistic January target, though he is also said to be attracting interest from several other leading Premier League clubs.

The Spanish international has been in and out of the side at Juventus this season, but his record on the Champions League stage highlights his undoubted quality:

Man Utd to beat Southampton

Since making his debut in the competition during the 2012/13 campaign, Morata has averaged a goal once every 168 minutes, some 229 minutes fewer than it has taken Wayne Rooney to score each of his goals during the same period.

Blessed with exceptional technique and adept at linking the play, the 23-year-old helped the Turin giants to score an extra 0.8 goals per game in Serie A last season when he featured:
