Arsenal battling out with Chelsea for the signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata is mulling over a move away from Madrid this summer and there are cluster of clubs in line to get his signature including Chelsea who are looking for Diego Costa’s replacement who recently sported an Atletico Madrid shirt on his live Instagram feed and told Fabregas to “give Conte a hug”, then there is AC Milan who have been told to agree a deal for him in the region of 60 million but talks have reportedly stalled, and finally the surprise entrants Arsenal have hoped on the wagon to bring the Spaniard to England.

Di Marzio’s site claims that not 24 hours after Morata was supposedly all set for AC Milan, he’s now actually more likely to go to Chelsea. Milan are now back in for Belotti instead, where they had a fairly substantial transfer bid already rejected. Meanwhile, Aubameyang and BVB are set to play AC Milan in a few hours, so he’s likely to vault back on top pretty soon here as far as their striker search is concerned.

And so it goes, round and round. Morata today, Belotti tomorrow, Aubameyang after that for the Italian giants who are in renaissance mode after they went on a flurry this transfer window.

A few days back, Morata’s agent Juanma Lopez had confirmed that the 24-year-old could be looking for a new club:

“He doesn’t want to go through another season like that. It was a great season, but he wants to play more. Alvaro is a player who wants to play a more important role. He wants to play more. That’s normal for a striker who’s scored 19 goals. It’s not enough.”

Sources indicate that Real Madrid are preparing to gather enough funds to fuel Mbappe move and one of the primary yielders of that money is Morata so Real want maximum from the striker sale, another option can be Morata stays at Real for one more season but that would dent Chelsea’s search as Lukaku is now out of reach, Aubameyang is slated to stay at BVB and Belotti will be a gamble plus he has a release clause.
