In what would seem an incredible bit of transfer business after what would be only one year at the club, Alvaro Morata is being ‘lined up’ as a replacement Edinson Cavani at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Metro reports that with rumblings surrounding the future of both Cavani and Morata at PSG and Chelsea, there could an ambitious move to bring the Spaniard to the French capital next summer – with the PSG board viewing the former Juventus and Real Madrid man as the perfect player to replace Cavani.
PSG are expected to offload their in-form striker amid continuing reports that him and Neymar have fallen out and the almost foregone conclusion is that the Uruguayan will leave Paris in the summer.
Chelsea’s striker Morata who scored the all important winner against Manchester United on Sunday is apparently the ideal replacement, and their hopes of signing him have been boosted with Morata admitting that London life is ‘stressful’ and a long-term future at the club would be unlikely as a result.
The report goes on to say that the Spaniard’s agent is ‘aware’ of interest from the mega-rich PSG, but whether or not the French club can comply with financial rules next summer if they are to make an approach for Morata is another thing – with Chelsea likely to make PSG pay-up in a big way for a striker that has been at the club less than a season.
It’s also worth noting that Alvaro Morata cleared up his comments about time in London being stressful by admitting he would sign a long-term deal at the Blues should they offer it, but that the city life in general is ‘stressful’ and not his experience of playing for the club.
