Chelsea could make £132m double bid for two top attackers – report
Chelsea are being offered a double deal for James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata by Real Madrid, say reports
Chelsea could be set to make a £132m double swoop on Real Madrid for both Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez, according to reports in Spain.
Spanish outlet Diario Gol is reporting that the Blues are being offered the duo in a €150m deal as Real Madrid look to offload both players.
The same report says that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has “not hesitated” to contact Chelsea with a proposal to sell both players this summer.
Chelsea have inevitably been linked with a move for Spanish striker Morata once again after the west London club missed out on Romelu Lukaku, with the Belgian set to head to Manchester United.
Both Morata and Rodriguez’s futures have been sources of speculation this summer due to their lack of playing time last season.
Morata has been touted heavily as a target for Manchester United but it seems that the Red Devils have now settled on Lukaku as their main main up front.
The west London club are thought to be keen to significantly bolster their squad this summer but have made a slow start to the transfer window ahead of Antonio Conte’s second season in charge.
