According to Football Italia, Alvaro Morata is in conversation with the brass at Stamford Bridge over a big money transfer, but there are disagreements over salary.
Reports state that Chelsea are offering €60 million for Morata’s services, but the hold up is over the yearly wage. Chelsea appear to be willing to give €6 million a year while the entourage around Morata are reportedly asking for €7.5 million a year.
Morata is a young star and is coming off a great season with Juventus scoring 12 goals and 9 assists for the club in all competitions. Morata is also a key figure on the Spanish National team, scoring 5 goals in 11 appearances including 2 goals in the Euro’s so far.
I think this deal is likely. Juventus won’t offer the kind of money Chelsea will to keep the star striker and Chelsea are rumored to be shopping Diego Costa around. If Costa goes, look for the Blues to make this move at all costs.
