In what may sound like the most unlikely rumour heading into the January transfer window, Spaniard Alvaro Morata has reportedly been offered out to Barcelona – of all clubs.
 
Spanish news source Marca via RAC1 has clearly stated, somewhat surprisingly, that Alvaro Morata has offered himself to Barcelona amid frustrations that he is no longer guaranteed a start in Maurizio Sarri’s side with Olivier Giroud instead getting more starts as of late.
 
Questions have to be asked as to whether Barcelona would even be keen on taking Alvaro Morata, and there’s very little chance to the 26-year old would get any more game-time than he would in west London at the Nou Camp – Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele are the main attackers of choice right now.
 
Alvaro Morata formerly at Real Madrid wouldn’t exactly cover himself with admiration amongst Barca faithful having played at such arch rivals, but Barcelona could be keen to listen if the player is available suggest the reports.
 
The Spaniard could be viewed as the long-term successor to Luis Suarez who is now 31, and Morata would certainly offer the Catalans something a little different.
 
However, it’s worth noting that these reports coming out of Spain are a little on the light side – there may not even be a story here but it’s certainly interesting for Blues fans to hear that their most expensive ever striker is looking to maneuver a move to La Liga holders Barcelona.
