Alvaro Morata Edging Closer To LaLiga Return

Alvaro Morata Edging Closer To LaLiga Return

"Chelsea are a club who are very hard to negotiate [with]".

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone was coy when asked about his club's interest in disgruntled Chelsea forward Alvaro Morata, saying he could not "confirm or deny anything" about the transfer market.

Caparros suggested Morata, who is said to be lacking confidence in West London, is keen on the move but admits a deal could be "very, very complicated" due to Chelsea being tough negotiators.

"[Morata] wants to leave Chelsea".

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has surely been one of the biggest flops that the Blues fans have seen in recent years.

Therefore, according to Sky Sports, the club is starting to give more consideration to Callum Wilson, a player who has scored nine Premier League goals this season and made his England debut. Sevilla looks the best option for him, given he can return to his homeland and its a place where he can get well off very soon.

"It is true that I've heard this rumour, but he is not our player; he is Chelsea's and we have to respect them".

The Telegraph claims Morata will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge this month if a replacement is signed before the end of January.

Peter Crouch, who now plays for Stoke City, called upon Chelsea to re-sign former striker Diego Costa, who joined Atletico Madrid just last summer. The Chelsea striker has been linked with a move to Atleti after their first choice striker Diego Costa suffered an injury and could need surgery to his foot, possibly keeping him sidelined for the most part of the second half of the current season.

He went from 8-1 down to 5-4 putting Simeone's Atletico as favourites ahead of La Liga rivals Sevilla. "We can only sign players later on".
