Italian club, AC Milan, have agreed to personal terms with Real Madrid fringe striker, Alvaro Morata and are willing to offer €60 million to Real Madrid for the Spanish forward.
Ac Milan’s sporting director, Massimiliano Mirabelli, has flown to Wales to close the deal before the UEFA Champions League Final.
He will be making the trip so as to negotiate further with the Spanish Champions in order finalize the deal.
Ac Milan was sold to a Chinese group earlier this year and the management has been given a blank cheque to spend on players this season and Morata has been identified as the number one priority for the club this season following the impending departure of Carlos Bacca in July.
Andrea Belotti of Torino was also a target for Milan but his price of €80 million put off the club and Morata had always been their first choice.
A wage of about €6.5-7 million have already been agreed with the player and now the club has to convince Real Madrid’s hierarchy to sell the player for their €60m valuation. Although reports suggest that Madrid will be looking to sell for €70m.
Morata was originally sold to Juventus in the summer of 2014 after their Champions League win over Athletico Madrid and it seems history is about to repeat itself as they seek to become the first club to retain the Champions League trophy.
Morata’s decision to move back to Italy is also being influenced by the fact that his fiancée Alice Campello is Italian and it is reported that she would prefer a move back to Italy over moving to England where he could pitch his tent with Manchester United or Chelsea.
However, in spite of the fact that Real Madrid are expected to play hardball and stick to their €70m valuation. They could be tempted to accept the offer from Milan as this means they will be getting double the money they spent on bringing him back from Juventus.
Time To Move On
Alvaro Morata came through the youth rank in Real Madrid and has been very impressive for the club in spite of his fringe role in the team.
