‘Madrid rejected Morata-Gimenez swap’

Real Madrid reportedly rejected a proposed swap deal involving Alvaro Morata and Atletico Madrid’s Jose Gimenez.

AS cites Cadena SER as reporting the proposal, raised by Atletico, in an attempt to exploit their neighbours’ interest in Gimenez and solve their striker search at the same time.

The same report also claims a €75m offer for Morata from Chelsea was turned down as Madrid insist he isn’t leaving Santiago Bernabeu having only just been brought back from two years at Juventus, while Napoli also made an inquiry.
