Olympique Marseille’s Sporting Director keeps an eye on Morata


Andoni Zubizarreta, Olympique Marseille’s sporting director, keeps a close in the the Real Madrid striker Álvaro Morata, who is not having many minutes since his return to Real Madrid. Olympique Marseille’s intention is to come to the rescue of the the Spanish striker and offer him to be the reference in the their attack in the next season, having a very important role in the team.

Morata is only playing the games where the important players must rest and he is thinking on leaving the team where he has grown as a player. In this season he is scoring a lot of goals when Zidane gives him the opportunity to play, but during all the year he has been in the shadow of Benzema.

The former Barcelona sporting director gave an interview for the ‘Journal du Dimanche’ where he affirmed that they are interested in the Spaniard striker but they know Real Madrid will not lower his price because he is a young player that can ever grow more as a player: ” My priority is to create a strong team, but I’m not searching a player who only sells shirts. Obviously if tomorrow I found out that Morata is on sale for an amount of €30M, I will go for him without any doubt. But I think this will not happen”, Zubizarreta said about their interest in the Real Madrid’s striker.

If Real Madrid decide to sell Álvaro Morata in the next transfer market, Andoni Zubizarreta will make an offer for sure, because he has affirmed several times that he likes how Morata plays and that it’s difficult to see a player with that level on the bench. We must add that Olympique Marseille have new multi-millionaire owners and they want to make a competitive team during the next summer with the aim of return to be an important squad in the French League and in Europe.
