Carlo Ancelotti calls Liverpool’s Suarez fantastic, says Arsenal, Man United & Spurs target Alvaro Morata is off
Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has given fresh quotes on Monday relating to two players with Premier League interest.
For months, if not over a year, Liverpool’s Luis Suarez has been continuously linked to Real Madrid, but as of yet no deal has ever transpired.
Liverpool, clearly, are reticent about holding onto Suarez, however the officials at the Santiago Bernabeu keep on dropping nuggets here and there that something, someday, might happen.
Now Champions League winning coach Carlo Ancelotti has stirred the pot once more, calling Suarez a fantastic player. This comes at a time when the Spanish media report, almost daily, the Suarez is a top target for Madrid this summer.
Alvaro Morata’s name is another who keeps on getting linked with a move.
The superb young Spanish striker, who helped his team win the Euro U21s last summer in Israel, is a player on the cutting block in Madrid.
Arsenal, Man United and Spurs are all linked to the forward, and Carlo Ancelotti has now discussed the notion of the striker walking out the door this summer.
Carlo Ancelotti said:
If Morata goes we will look for a striker, with the same profile, young. The player has decided to leave in search of more minutes and the club has agreed it.
It is difficult to improve what we have up front, but Luis Suarez is a fantastic player. But it is disrespectful transfer talk now.
