Chelsea are reportedly concerned over potential summer transfer

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have concerns over the potential signing of Alvaro Morata, and it appears as though the Blues brass does too – though for a completely different reason…

According to the Evening Standard, Chelsea are holding off on making a move for Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata because they are concerned that their interest could be used as leverage for Los Blancos to secure a deal for either Eden Hazard or Thibaut Courtois.

Certainly, that logic would make sense. If Real Madrid realise the extent of Chelsea’s interest, they could simply refuse to sell unless a deal for Hazard or Courtois is included in some way – leaving the Blues in a tough spot.

The Chelsea fans in the pub think that this could be a blessing in disguise for the Blues. They don’t think that Morata is not the sort of player that Chelsea should be going after this summer, with a more lethal, prolific forward being demanded instead.

That being said, it is hard to argue that Morata is a top player. Possessing far more technical ability than Diego Costa, whilst Morata’s goalscoring record isn’t quite as good, the Spaniard is comfortable with the ball at his feet and is a technical magician – leaving our landlord dreaming of a partnership between him and Hazard.

It is going to be a summer of change at Stamford Bridge, though the Blues will need to ensure victory in the Premier League title race first.
