Once again, Italian newspaper Tuttosport has new story on Alvaro Morata today.
The Chelsea striker is said to be willing to return to Juventus, and the Old Lady are apparently more than happy to take him back to Turin.
The update today is that now that Chelsea are officialy out of the Champions League, the Spaniard is more likely to leave the club, with Roman Abramovich not making many efforts to keep the player.
But despite this rumour, which has been dragged for a month now, Tuttosport has some pretty interesting claims on Chelsea’s plans for the summer market.
They claim that Roman Abramovich wants to manage the club’s transfer window ‘in first person this time’. It means that he’s ‘relegating’ Marina Granovskaia to different roles.
Abramovich’s intention is to ‘strongly reduce expenses’, with the main reason for it being missing Champions League money for next season.
The newspaper doesn’t give any other details on who Abramovich’s targets will be, but make it clear that the Russian owner will be more active in the club’s transfers this time.
That seems let a lot of speculation presented as fact.
Conte replacement identifies prime target if he takes charge of Chelsea
Chelsea’s Premier League campaign ended in disappointment with a 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United at St. James’ Park, ensuring the Blues will be without Champions League football next season for the second time in three seasons.
The west London giants still have success on their minds ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup final against Manchester United but Antonio Conte’s future is shrouded in speculation, with widespread reports suggesting he will be relieved of his duties at Stamford Bridge.
Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is the leading candidate to succeed the former Italy and Juventus boss at the club and The Daily Mail states he’s already identified his prime target for the summer if he lands the job; Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.
Speculation suggests Alvaro Morata could be sold after a disappointing debut campaign in the Premier League, with it suggested he could return to former employers Juventus, and Chelsea could look to get Higuain in return.
Now 30, Higuain’s experience would prove to be a tremendous asset to Chelsea but he wouldn’t provide the years of service that the club’s current options present.
