Chelsea are plotting to hijack
Manchester United’s move for
Real Madrid ace Alvaro Morata,
according to reports.
The Spaniard has become
frustrated with his lack of game time
at the Bernabeu under boss Zinedine
Zidane.
And according to the Mirror, the
Blues are ready to take on their
Premier League rivals for Morata’s
signature.
Chelsea are expecting to lose
Diego Costa after boss Antonio
Conte texted the striker to tell him
he is no longer in his plans.
But Atletico are hoping to convince
the Blues to keep Costa until January
as they wait for their Fifa-sanctioned
transfer embargo to end.
The Spanish giants will also ask
the Blues to keep Costa out of their
Champions League squad so he is
not cup-tied.
And Costa’s departure will mean
the Premier League champions are
on the hunt for another striker.
Conte is a huge fan of Morata and
is eager to sanction a £65million
move for the former Juventus star.
The former Italy manager knows
Blues technical director Michael
Emenalo wants to bring Everton
hitman Romelu Lukaku, 23, back
to the club as further proof that exboss
Jose Mourinho’s instincts were
wrong when he sold the Belgian
striker in 2014.
