Alvaro Morata has been a bit of a flop at Stamford Bridge, but that hasn’t stopped two major Spanish clubs from being interested in him.
The forward has looked like he’s totally given up on making at the Bridge in recent weeks, not even bothering to celebrate his recent double goal haul.
But Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, of all people, are still interested, according to Guillem Balague, whose tweets you can see below. He says that Chelsea just need to lower their asking price for the Spain international.

Atletico Madrid would be keen on taking the forward on a paid loan, while Chelsea understandably apparently want to force an “obligation to buy” in there.
There’s also the need for Chelsea to find a replacement playing a heavy role. But then again it wouldn’t be too hard to get someone adequate in, even just to cover for 6 months while we prepare to go for a top striker in the summer.
At Madrid might find a way to finance the cost of Morata if both player and Chelsea reduce their expectations.
