We have seen James Rodriguez finally leave Real Madrid for Bayern Munich after he told the club that he would want to join his new club ahead of the pre-season.
After losing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, Chelsea now have their sights on Alvaro Morata and Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol claims that although Real boss Zinedine Zidane wants to keep Morata, the club will let him go if he makes them aware of his desire to move to west London.
“Let’s go to the latest now on Alvaro Morata,” Solhekol said on Sky Sports.
“Of course Chelsea are trying to sign him.
“The Real Madrid forward is one of their main targets now but a move is not imminent.
“Why? Because Morata has flown with the rest of the Real squad to LA for their pre-season tour of the USA.
“Real Madrid will let him go this summer if they get an £80million offer.
“Zinedine Zidane wants to keep Morata but Real will sell if he tells them he wants to move to Chelsea.”
