Real Madrid Ready To Part Ways With Alvaro Morata


Ekun Samuel, 28 January 2017
The 24 old Spanish striker has found playing time in Bernabue under Zinedine Zidane a night mare as he is been used as a back up for Karim Benzema, Zidane's countryman. Alvaro Morata whom Madrid resigned from Juventus for £23m, has failed to impress Zizou, and has found himself down the pecking order in the Madrid team. He has since his return made a total of six La Liga starts, something really convincing enough for a striker who has featured sparingly. Morata has become increasingly frustrated due to his lack of playing time at the Bernabue. Zinedane Zidane has chosen to use his country man Benzema instead, despite Morata scoring nine goals so far despite the scanty games for the Spanish striker. The same sentimental approach Zidane employed for Varane over Pepe, which resulted in Pepe making a stunning move to China. Morata isn't happy with the current situation of things, and has lead to an unruly behaviour on his part which has angered Madrid President Florentino Perez, and according to Spanish media outlet Diario Gol, Perez told the striker: ‘If we get €60m (£51m) you can leave tomorrow,’. Arsenal and Chelsea have been reportedly monitoring closely the situation of the striker and this could be their chance to cash in on him. Chelsea are clear favourites though, as they see Morata as a replacement for unsettled striker Diego Costa, and part of a deal that would see unsettled Courtios moved to the Spanish capital. Chelsea is reportedly wanting a deal that would include Morata if Thibuat Courtios eventually leaves Stamford Bridge for the Spanish capital.
