Chelsea currently have a striker dilemma at Stamford Bridge. Antonio Conte had informed Diego Costa he is not in his plan for the upcoming season and he lined up Romelu Lukaku as his prime target. Alas, Costa has not resumed training and Lukaku favoured a record move to Manchester United.
As a fall-back option, Chelsea have been linked with a move for Pierre Emerick Aubamyang but the Express on Wednesday claim Real Madrid have offered Alvaro Morata to Chelsea but on the condition that Eden Hazard is added in a swap deal.
Conte is left craving for a reliable goal poacher, while Aubamyang emerged in his list of targets we understand that the Italian tactician wants Alvaro Morata at Stamford Bridge as a matter of number one priority as he played a key role in signing the player for Juventus in the summer of 2014.
Morata had informed his friends of his desire to depart the Santiago Bernabeu following the lack of game time but Mourinho’s preference for Lukaku has left him leaking his lips. We understand that he is currently with Real Madrid on their pre-season tour in America but he is still second best to Karim Benzema in the pecking order of selection.
Zinedine Zidane has been a long time admirer of Eden Hazard and Dario Gol claim Real Madrid will listen to offers for Morata if Hazard would be allowed to move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
It will be fool hardy for Conte to swap his best player for Alvaro Morata. Conte may be forced to scout for other options besides Morata.
