Juventus and Real Madrid will meet this week to discuss the ‘Recompra clause’ but Chelsea are waiting at the door.
Premier League sides are willing to spend big money on Alvaro Morata and Real Madrid could turn a simple profit by sending him away to their suitors.
But Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, seems to be the more appealing destination for some of the outgoing Juventus players, Kwadwo Asamoah is also linked with a switch to the Blues of London.
Today, The Guardian revealed that Chelsea are will to spend €50 million on the Spanish forward.
“The deal is slightly complicated by the fact Real intend to activate a £23m buy-back clause in the 23-year-old’s contract, with a view to selling him on immediately at a profit. The European champions would seek nearer £40m for his services, though Chelsea are hopeful a compromise can be reached over a fee prior to Spain starting their campaign at the European Championship. They begin against Czech Republic in Toulouse on Monday.” – Dominic Fifield
The Euro 2016 striker has been capped 9 times for Spain and is seen as a crucial link between the new generation and the golden era that dominated world football from 2008-2014.
After two incredibly successful seasons with the Bianconeri, in which he scored 27 goals and lifted two Coppa Italia and Scudetti, scored in the UEFA Champions League finale, it’s certain that Morata is the real deal and a 5-star striker.
“With what I have learned in Italy, if I have the chance to learn something more in England I think it would make me a more complete player. I am 23 years old and I want to progress, to play and learn from the best,” Morata said last week.
