Chelsea in the hunt to sign Alvaro Morata from Juventus
Chelsea new manager Antonio Conte keen to land the signature of Morata this summer
June 7th, 2016
Apparently Spain don’t have any decent strikers this summer although perhaps Alvaro Morata will confound those expert opinions by scoring at will for Spain.
Morata is currently on the books at Juventus, with the striker having turned out for La Roja on nine occasions and Vicente del Bosque looks set to select him as first-choice striker ahead of the other forwards.
Antonio Conte will inherit the Chelsea manager’s position after he has finished with Italy at Euro 2016 and it’s clear that the Italian will have funds to strengthen a squad who failed to get close to winning the title last season.
Morata knows that he will be bought back by former club Real Madrid before getting the chance to transfer and England could be his destination.
“Hopefully everything will be resolved before then, because it is uncomfortable to be helping your country with phone in hand,” he said. “My wish is to succeed in Madrid, but Madrid have great players and what I want is to play and feel important. There are some offers from England that are tempting, not only because of the contract.
“I think my characteristics mean the Premier League would be a great destination. 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.”
