Real Madrid striker pushes for exit door with Chelsea waiting in the wings but he would cost more than £50M

Chelsea target Alvaro Morata is pushing for a summer move away from Real Madrid, report Calciomercato.

Morata, a product of the Real Madrid academy, left the Bernabeu in the summer of 2014 for Juventus in search of regular first-team football. He found the back of the net 27 times in 93 appearances for Juve, before returning to Los Blancos in the summer transfer window.

The Spaniard has struggled to force his way into Zinedine Zidane’s starting eleven, with Karim Benzema firmly first-choice at the spearhead of Real’s attack. Morata could be set to seek a move away from Real Madrid for the second time.

Calciomercato cite Spanish reports in claiming that Morata is pushing for a move away from Real in the summer transfer window. They believe that he is unsatisfied with his game-time. As per Calciomercato, Antonio Conte could offer Morata an escape route, with the Italian asking Chelsea’s board to sign the 24-year-old back in December.

However, if Calciomercato are to be believed, the Blues will have to part with as much as £51 million if they want to secure Morata’s services. It is unclear whether they would be willing to meet that inflated asking price.
