Álvaro Morata continues with his idea of leaving Real Madrid. The Manchester United deal couldn’t be sealed because Real Madrid demanded up to €90M for the forward, but now it’s Milan the team that wants to sign the Spaniard.
The striker had to travel with Real Madrid to California to start the pre-season but he doesn’t want to stay in the club one more year. He’s very disappointed after the last season, where he had to sit on the bench in all the important games of the season. For this reason, he’s looking for an exit this summer.
It looked like Manchester was his destination and even José Mourinho tried to convince him, but Real Madrid shut the door. Los Blancos asked for €90M and the Red Devils finally decided to sign Romelu Lukaku. Now Morata has other options on the table: Chelsea or Milan.
Milan tried to sign him at the beginning of the summer, but the Italian club didn’t show a high offer and the project wasn’t really appealing for Álvaro Morata. The ‘rossoneri’ won’t play the Champions League next season and some of the stars were about to leave the club, like Gigi Donnarumma. However, things changed in this two months.
Donnarumma is staying and the club has spent more than €200M in signings. For instance, last week they got Leonardo Bonucci, the defender from Juventus. The new Chinese owners are investing a lot of money in building a new successful squad and Álvaro Morata is the next target.
According to the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, “Morata is closer”. The Italian club would pay around €70M to Real Madrid and Morata would have a salary of €10M per year. The club would accept this offer to make the player happy.
These days we can see Álvaro Morata training with the rest of the team, but he’s more serious than his team-mates. His idea of leaving the club hasn’t changed and he hopes to find a solution sooner than later.
