Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata’s representatives have reportedly been in touch with Real Madrid over securing a late summer transfer back to the Bernabeu.
According to Don Balon, the Spain international is desperate to return to his former club after a difficult spell in the Premier League so far.
The report states Real Madrid have been contacted by players about filling that problematic centre-forward position in Julen Lopetegui’s side, and Morata is among those.
However, it’s claimed in the piece that Real have no interest in re-signing Morata, which is not too surprising really, considering how the last couple of seasons have panned out for him.
The 25-year-old flopped in his first year at Chelsea, scoring just 15 goals for the Blues and becoming notorious for missing some big chances.
Prior to that, Morata was an effective super-sup at Real Madrid, but never established himself as a starter under previous manager Zinedine Zidane, though it’s unclear if that could perhaps be different under Lopetegui.
Either way, it seems likely Morata will have to make do with another season at Stamford Bridge as CFC would be unable to replace him until January anyway if they were to let him go now.
