Alvaro Morata’s transfer saga rolls on and on with the Spaniard still unable to secure a deal to a new club, but Chelsea fans in the Tavern have turned their attention to a different striker.
The Real Madrid forward failed to make his desperate switch to Old Trafford as Real’s valuation of the player seemingly priced the Spaniard out of a move.
Chelsea’s rivals opted out after their initial and already over-the-odds £70m offer was rejected by the La Liga champions.
Instead, Jose Mourinho’s side turned their attention to Blues target Romelu Lukaku, who completed his move to United last week.
And now Morata is being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer.
The 24-year-old struggled for game time in Zinedine Zidane’s side last term after returning from a two-year spell at Juventus.
To his credit, his goal scoring form improved for Real Madrid last season – Morata netted 15 times in 27 games for the Spanish giants.
But the forward has never scored more than 20 goals in a league season.
Chelsea even have a better striker in Diego Costa.
Despite consistent questions of the Spaniard’s temperament, Costa was instrumental in firing the Blues to the title this season.
Alvaro Morata is simply not worth the £80m price-tag.
