Two Italian teams contending for Morata’s signature

After an uninspiring season for The Pensioners and missing out on a World Cup place for Spain, Morata is likely to leave Chelsea this transfer window.

The Spanish striker kicked off his debut season at Stamford Bridge with an auspicious start, managing seven goals in seven appearances for The Blues. However, in the latter half of his stint at Chelsea, he saw himself falling down the pecking order with Antonio Conte losing faith in the Spaniard.

According to the British outlet Daily Mail, AC Milan have entered into the limelight for Morata’s signature. The 25-year-old was already being pursued by his former club, Juventus, who were willing to land him as a replacement for Mario Mandzukic, who is expected to leave the club this summer. All the same, the surprise involvement of AC Milan could pose a serious threat to the Serie A champions in their pursuit of re-signing the Spaniard.
