Mourinho Drops Clever Hints About His Favorite Target

José Mourinho isn’t leaving any room to the imagination about whom he favors to lead the frontline, as he has alluded to Alvaro Morata with multiple social media posts. The striker reportedly shares the sentiment, also because he’s very tight with Paulo Dybala. But Roma need money before activating his €21M release clause, Corriere dello Sport relays.

The Special One underlined how he insisted on signing Didier Drogba when he was at Chelsea despite the initial reservation on Instagram. The deal ended up working out wonderfully. The Spaniard was among those who liked it.

Moreover, Mourinho shared an image with the no.19, which Morata usually dons, and then while eating a blackberry-flavored popsicle, which is called ‘mora’ in Italian.

Director Tiago Pinto is waiting for the green light from the Friedkin family for the disbursement. Though, it’s unlikely to arrive before more sales. The ex-Juventus striker is also being targeted by Inter, however, he’s not top of the list for them, and by Al Shabab, which would cover him in gold.

Our Take on Mourinho and Morata

He’s not the most prolific striker but would work very well in their system considering his work rate. But his price tag is indeed a tad high and problematic for a team that routinely struggles to complete expensive purchases.
