Juventus striker Alvaro Morata wants to move to the Premier League – specifically Manchester United or Chelsea.
AS says while Morata’s dream is to play again for Real Madrid, he accepts the presence of Karim Benzema will mean limited playing time.
Instead, Morata favours an England move and is eager to choose between United and Chelsea.
At United, Morata would find his former Real coach Jose Mourinho, who granted the striker his first team debut.
“He gambled on me and refused to let me leave,” Morata has said of Mourinho. “He gives you tips to make you a better player and I’ll always be grateful.”
Indeed, it’s suggested Mourinho has already made a direct call to Morata about a move to Old Trafford.
Real, meanwhile, have decided to trigger the €30 million buy-back option in the player’s contract ahead of selling him on this summer for at least double his price.
PSG and Arsenal are also keen, but Morata will make it clear he only wants a choice of United or Chelsea.
