New Twist In Alvaro Morata’s Real Madrid Exit Rumours
Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata could be on his way to AC Milan this summer as the Italian giants continue to sign big stars in their summer spree.
The 24-year old had a difficult season under Zidane as he played as an understudy to French striker Karim Benzema. He is willing to move away from Bernabeu this summer in search of more playing time and was linked with numerous clubs over the summer.
According to Spanish media outlet Marca, Milan set their sights on Morata as Manchester United have pulled off the deal after massive asking fee by Real Madrid.
The Italian club currently has new Chinese owners who are ready to negotiate over Real Madrid’s 90 million euro asking price and could very well finalise the deal over the next few days.
A move to Italy would surely be benefiting to Morata as he could be an automatic starter for almost any club across the world. He is a proven talent in Serie A after his stint with Juventus before moving back to Madrid last summer.
AC Milan confirm interest
AC Milan’s sports chief Massimiliano Mirabelli has also admitted over their interest in signing Real Madrid’s Morata. He further insisted that the deal could be very quickly especially with fading interest from other clubs.
He said: “Morata has given us his approval, but the transfer is complicated following the Champions League final (Morata has said he could not play anywhere but Juventus in Italy).
“Plus there’s a little interest from other clubs. It’s an operation that could be done quickly, but only on our terms.”
The Italian club are keen to get back to Europe’s elite and have already made 10 signings this summer. Milan are set for complete squad overhaul and had also managed to sign Leonardo Bonucci from Juventus earlier last week.
Milan are looking to add a new striker and are also looking for Dortmund’s Pierre Emerick Aubameyang as well as Torino striker Andrea Belotti. However, a move to Morata might be more realistic as the player is also very keen to move away from Real Madrid.
