Chelsea give up on Morata chase, Milan are the only option for him now?

The striker might have to say good-bye to the Premier League.

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata appeared to be ready to sign for Manchester United just a few weeks ago but Los Blancos and the Red Devils could not reach an agreement over the transfer. Then, it looked as if Chelsea’s Antonio Conte, who coached Morata at Juventus, was going to make an effort and give the striker the minutes he wants, but the Blues have now turned their looks into Kun Agüero, or at least that’s what the media in England are reporting.

Morata’s only option might be to join AC Milan, who better be ready to spend close to €80 million if they want to sign him away from Madrid. He clearly wants to leave but Madrid have the right to ask for at least that kind of money. It’s time for Los Blancos to stop selling low, so Morata needs to be patient and tell Milan or Chelsea to show Madrid the money.
