Chelsea are having increasing doubts about the future of Alvaro Morata according to the Express, who think the forward isn’t doing enough to warrant being at the club – or in the starting line up.
He’s struggled at times this season in front of goal, and it seems that Chelsea will consider other options once the transfer window opens.
The club are worried the forward isn’t doing enough to justify his place at the club and while Conte may well be leaving come the end of the season, a new manager will be coming in and the club will have to prepare for next season – and that could well be in the transfer market, with a new forward coming in.
The summer will be a huge period for all clubs, with the Blues facing a season out of the Champions League but looking to keep their best players at the same time – and they will also have to search for a manager who doesn’t mind the board being heavily involved in some of the transfer decisions – something Conte moaned about time and time again, and certainly something that doesn’t look like changing at Chelsea for the foreseeable future either.
They will have to compete with other top clubs, not only in terms of money but also in terms of what they can offer on the field, and being in Europa League means they’ll have a harder time getting top talent and convincing them Stamford Bridge is where their future lies.
