Chelsea’s manager is not very happy with the performance of his strikers this season and he is searching other strikers to complete his squad. Antonio Conte is interested in the young Spaniard striker Álvaro Morata. Chelsea didn’t start the Premier League as well as they wanted and the Italian manager is thinking in solutions to face this season.
With Benezema’s recovering, Morata is not having too many minutes. In the first games of the season, Morata played in the starting 11 but with the Benzema’s recovering ,he started to be on the bench and he doesn’t participate as much as before. The young Spaniard striker started being in Zinedine Zidane line up in all the games but when Benzema was fit again, Morata has become the player number 12.
Chelsea already tried last transfer market to sign Morata because Antonio Conte asked for him. According to OKdiario the English club had made the second offer (lower than the one they did on summer of €70M) to sign the Spaniard striker because Antonio Conte is not happy with the performance of his signing star Michy Batshuayi. The Belgian striker is not playing as well as it was expected at Stamford Bridge and Conte is looking for a new talent and that one could be Morata.
The Spaniard striker is not having the minutes he hoped with Real Madrid and although he is very happy with Zinedine Zidane, Morata might be thinking in changing of team. It looks quite difficult that Real Madrid let Morata leave on the winter market because Zinedine Zidane only has two pure strikers, Morata and Benzema. It’s true Mariano is also in the squad but Zinedine Zidane in not giving him minutes, only 13 minutes in all the year so far. Morata said recently in an interview that Zidane convinced him to stay because he was going to play a lot, but he’s losing some confindence after not playing the most important games in the season so far, the Champions League clashes against Sporting Lisbon and Borussia Dortmund.
