According to various reports, Alvaro Morata has had enough of life in Madrid after his return from Italy, and expected to demand a move to Chelsea this summer.
As reported on this website previously and on the majority of credible websites on the Internet, Morata has become more than frustrated with life in Madrid having to play second fiddle to the likes of Cristano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.
With additional reports claiming that a move for Eden Hazard as their next Galactico signing is in the pipeline, Morata sees his chances as worse than they are currently in the Spanish capital and had made the decision to leave.
There is almost certainly going to be serious interest from some of Europe’s biggest names in his services after he made such an impact at Juventus, with the Italian champions likely to make their move. However, it’s believed that Morata is keen to link up once again with the man who took him to Juventus in the first place – Antonio Conte now at Chelsea.
It’s clear that Conte is a huge admirer of the Spanish striker and identified the qualities in the player that he believed would fit into his style of play. His decision paid off with Morata making a massive impression in Italy, which convinced Real Madrid to activate the £29m buy-back clause that had inserted into his contract as part of the initial deal with Juventus.
Reports state that Real Madrid would be looking to recoup around double their outlay to Juventus or somewhere near that figure and Antonio Conte has informed the Chelsea hierarchy that he wants to re-sign him with a fee of £56m being quoted. Chelsea are keen to test their resolve as quickly as possible once Morata informs the club of his decision.
Michy Batshuayi looks like leaving Chelsea this summer and Alvaro Morata to come in as his replacement OR as a direct replacement for Diego Costa if he decides to leave. Anything can happen as we have seen over the years so your bet is as good as mine with what is actually going to happen. You are better off spending your betting monies on LeoVegas sports instead.
What do you think of the news of Morata? Is he a striker that excites you or do you feel like Chelsea should focus on someone else? I am interested to read your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below!
