Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has claimed that he only takes over at clubs that are struggling. There is still work to do on this deal, but it appears to be progressing well and it could be done before the beginning of pre-season.
Those comments backfired on Mourinho when it emerged Smalling had a broken toe but played with the injury two weeks earlier at Chelsea, a 4-0 defeat when the defender needed two pain-killing injections to be involved.
Morata is not likely to be the only striker moving to Old Trafford this summer, however, with United also chasing Torino frontman Andrea Belotti to partner the Spaniard up front.
Speaking to Manchester United's official website the academy product said of the loan, "It went well and I think I have found another position".
"All of a sudden, you're winning a lot more games than you're drawing".
"The manager has shown his frustration but we are just as frustrated".
"The media are always trying to criticise Paul", Robson was quoted as saying by the club website.
"Here, everyone is powerful now", Mourinho said.
Other theories have been put forward to debunk the story with regards to mutual follows and algorithms placing your preferred options at the top of the list so Morata may well have not just started following the United group. As players, it's not about always being 100 per cent.
United apparently saw a £52m offer rejected by the European Champions before the Europa League winners returned with an improved £60m bid.
Asked if there was a moment he felt like he had won over Mourinho, he said: "I don't think I've got anything to prove as such". I feel I'm ready, more than ready, to play men's football now.
Smalling, 27, is in the England squad for Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Scotland in Glasgow and Tuesday's friendly against France in Paris. Wayne Rooney is also set to leave. I have had to defend and we play on the counter-attack and can play long balls sometimes.
"Wayne is a big miss because of who he is but hopefully he will be back".
"It went well and I think I have found another position". Since his move, Pogba has managed to score 10 goals and make five assists in all competition. But as a player he's got everything. He wants to play more.
