Chelsea ready to make third bid to land star striker – report
Chelsea are preparing a third big-money bid to sign Alvaro Morata, according to reports
Chelsea are lining up a third transfer bid to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Express is reporting that the Blues are preparing another offer for the Spain international after having their first two approaches turned down by Madrid.
The same story claims that Chelsea have bid £50m and £62m for the striker as they look to add some fresh firepower to their squad at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte is gearing up for his first season in charge of the Blues and is thought to have identified Morata as the club’s top summer striker target.
The same article claims that Real Madrid are holding out for a fee of £67m for Morata this summer.
The striker re-joined Madrid earlier in the summer after the Spanish giants activated the buy-back clause in his Juventus contract.
Conte has been appointed as Chelsea’s new manager after the sacking of Jose Mourinho and is now gearing up for his first season in charge in the Premier League.
