Liverpool transfers: Spain Under-21 international Álvaro Morata admits he could leave Real Madrid if the club signs a striker
Álvaro Morata has admitted he could leave Real Madrid if another attacker is brought in as the striker continues to be linked with Arsenal and Liverpool.
The 20-year old has been one of the shining lights of the Under-21 European championship in Israel, scoring three goals for the impressive Spanish side.
The Madrid-born striker has found life difficult at Los Blancos,/em> since his move in 2008 as he struggled to hold down a first-team place with the number of attacking options currently at Madrid’s disposal.
Despite the expected departure of Gonzalo Higuaín this summer, the striker doesn’t think he will get many more playing opportunities next season, putting the Premier League’s top clubs on high alert.
On his future in the Spanish capital, Morata revealed to AS: “If the new Real Madrid coach brings in one or two strikers, it’ll be more difficult.
“If I leave, I would like to play abroad.”
The Spanish giants have been linked for moves for Tottenham winger Gareth Bale and Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, and should Madrid complete the signature of one of those players, Morata may be forced to look elsewhere for first-team football.
The promising youngster has drawn comparison with Real Madrid legend Fernando Morientes, and standing at 6ft 4ins, his style and aerial prowess has drawn admirers from the Premier League with interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.
