Morata braced for summer move?

Alvaro Morata has already decided to leave Real Madrid this summer and has major interest from eight other clubs, say reports in Spain.

AS state the Spanish international striker is considering offers from England (Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham), Italy (Juventus, Milan), Germany (Borussia Dortmund) and from the Chinese Super League.

The Madrid daily paper believes Stamford Bridge is the most likely destination for the 24-year-old, who only moved back to the Bernabeu in July 2016 after two seasons with Juventus, the first of which he played under current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Reports on Cadena Ser radio show El Larguero claimed former Blues Coach Jose Mourinho had called the striker – whom he worked with at Real Madrid – personally in order to tempt him to Old Trafford this summer, while Marca state United’s interest in him is ‘key’ for any potential David De Gea deal.
