Many media outlets reported yesterday that Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is closer to completing his switch to the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
Almost all Spanish publications revealed that a deal could be sealed between both clubs on Tuesday so as to allow Gonzalo Higuain move to Stamford Bridge in the same day.
However, latest rumour surrounding the Spaniard’s move to Atletico Madrid suggest the La Liga giants are likely to delay their move for his signature, that’s according to football expert Guillem Balague
The pundit said that Diego Simeone could be forced to wait a little longer before finalizing a deal with the Blues for the 26-year-old due to FIFA fair play rule.
He claimed Atletico Madrid must sell one of their players this week so as to be eligible to bring the Chelsea flop to Spain.
According to him, Morata will need to be at Stamford Bridge until Atletico get rid of one player from their squad.
Meanwhile, it is believed that Diego Simeone is set to part ways with 23-year-old striker Gelson Martins who joined his side from Benfica last season.
The Portuguese attacker has failed to displace Griezmann from the manager’s starting lineup, so, he’s not getting quality time on the pitch and he wants to leave the team.
Monaco and Milan are reportedly keeping close tabs on his signature and one of the clubs could capture his services before the end of the week.
Guillem Balague said that Martin’s future will determine whether Morata will join the Spanish side or not.
