What’s going on with Alvaro Morata?
Spanish radio station Onda Cero have looked into the ongoing saga surrounding Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
As most people know, Morata was thought to be on his way to Manchester United, however the Red Devils have signed Romelu Lukaku from Everton instead.
That’s lead to speculation that the 24-year-old La Roja international could be heading to Chelsea instead.
Morata, of course, was signed by Antonio Conte at Juventus, however the current Blues boss never managed to striker as he leave the Binaconeri to manage the Italian national team.
Man United’s £10m offer
According to Onda Cero, at the height on Man United’s interest in Morata they offered the striker 10 million pounds a year in wages.
That’s not the biggest offer Morata has received this summer, however. Chinese Super League side Tianjin Quanjian, managed by Fabio Cannavaro, reportedly offered 30 million euros a season in wages.
As for the likelihood Morata ends up joining Chelsea, the Spanish news outlet claim that deal “does not seem very feasible,” although it’s unclear why’s that the case.
For the record, Morata is currently with the Real Madrid squad in America for pre-season.
Onda Cero note that both Florentino Perez and Zinedine Zidane want to keep him at the club next season.
