Morata urge Chelsea board
Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata is allegedly pushing for his side to complete the move of Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio, who has also been strongly linked with Premier League rivals Manchester United.
The summer signing moved from the Santiago Bernabeu to Stamford Bridge in London last summer transfer window but has not yet enjoyed the best of times at the West London club since moving to the Premier League.
Morata take up scouting role
Still, The Spain international striker could have some good influence in Chelsea transfer if all works for him, as he looks for the Blues to raid his former side Real Madrid for the service of Spaniard Asensio, as reported by Diario Gol.
Exciting talent to replace Hazard
Asensio, 22, is tagged as one of Europe’s most exciting youngsters right now but hasn’t had as much playing chance for Real this season.
This situation could get even worse next season as Diario Gol suggest Belgium international forward Eden Hazard could be on his way from Chelsea to Real Madrid, and Alvaro Morata wants Asensio to join his team as Hazard’s replacement.
The same report states that the Chelsea striker has told club hierarchy to make a switch for the Real attacker and that he’s sure his former team-mate will be willing to join him at Chelsea.
