Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to reports that one of their main strikers may want to leave the club in the summer in a return to familiar surroundings.
Alvaro Morata has been a lonely figure up front in the Chelsea team, ever since the turn of the year the Spaniard has frustrated the fans in the bar. Indeed, it’s reported that Morata wants to move back to his old club Juventus and they are keen on the idea.
The Spaniard enjoyed a successful period in Italy when he was on loan there from Real Madrid for two years during which, he picked up back-to-back Serie A titles and was looking likely to have found a place to call home. However, since making the move to SW6 last summer, after an initial new club bounce, he has found it hard to maintain a consistent level in the English Premier League.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at if Morata was to return to the Old Lady this summer, which star striker would jump straight into his boots at Stamford Bridge…
OUR VERDICT – Edinson Cavani
The Uruguayan hitman has scored 28 league goals this season, although it’s thought that the French champions are willing to let him leave this summer following several reported fallings out with world-record signing Neymar throughout the season.
Reports suggest that PSG are happy to cash-in on the over-30 striker, only on the basis they can secure their own replacement, in the form of Bayern Munich’s forward Robert Lewandowski. Despite all his success in the French capital since joining from Napoli, Cavani has never truly been loved and a move to west London would be a wonderful career decision.
Valued at £54m by Transfermakrt, he’d set the Premier League alight.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
