Chelsea set to launch bid for Alvaro Morata

Alvaro Morata returned to Real Madrid this summer, but Los Blancos may still decide to cash in on the youngster.

With new Chelsea coach Antonio Conte looking to significantly strengthen the squad he has inherited at Stamford Bridge, reports have now emerged that the Italian is considering making a serious offer for Alvaro Morata.

Morata recently returned to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu during the close season, after Real Madrid exercised their right to buy back the 23-year-old from Juventus for fee of €32 million.

However, with Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo to choose from and the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal interested in the Spaniard’s services, Marca have revealed that Los Blancos may look to quickly offload the forward for a significant profit.

A figure of €75 million has been banded about for the player, who has seen his stock rise after scoring thrice for Spain at Euro 2016

It is believed that even at this hefty price, former Azzurri coach Conte is still weighing up a bid to bring the highly-rated attacker to London, as he aims to bring in competition for current first-choice forward, Diego Costa.

Morata scored 27 goals in all competitions for the Bianconeri, whilst he now looks likely to swiftly leave the Spanish capital for pastures new.
