Chelsea to open Morata talks

Chelsea to open Morata talks”

The Blues had been thought to be closing in on a transfer deal to sign Lukaku from Everton this summer but Manchester United beat the west London club to his signature, with the striker passing a medical in LA on Saturday.

Morata is unhappy with his limited first-team opportunities under Zinedine Zidane, having spent much of last season as backup for Karim Benzema, and the 24-year-old is keen to push through a move to Stamford Bridge.

A source close to the deal has claimed the bid will include add-ons but still falls short of Real's valuation which is closer to £80m.

The Spain striker's representatives have said he will "keep fighting".

An agreement between the Blues and Morata is also not thought to be an issue, with the Spain global settling on a long-term deal.

Chelsea to open Morata talks

Morata would sign on the dotted line at Stamford Bridge for four or five years.

"The Champions also face losing Diego Costa and with Champions League commitments this season, the squad is starting to look a little threadbare with new recruits looking a must".

Meanwhile, Morata now earns £100,000-a-week at Real Madrid. The Liverpool legend reckons that the Spaniard would prove to be a better deal for the Blues as they would get a good footballer for the same money over just power and strength.

"Chelsea are actually going to end up coming out okay on this if they get Morata", Nicol told ESPN.

And with Lukaku out of the shop window, Chelsea has reportedly honed in on Morata. I'll have a football player over that every day of the week.
