Sevilla coach Machin says landing Morata would be 'blessing'

Sevilla coach Machin says landing Morata would be 'blessing'

On one side you have a striker who did perform for Chelsea, but his issues off the field left his position at the club untenable, while on the other there's Morata, who has been a real disappointment considering the money we paid for him.

After initially hitting the ground running at the club, scoring six goals in his first six games, he has only managed to find the net another 18 times in the 66 games that have followed.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea star Alvaro Morata could be on his way to Barcelona when the January transfer window opens.

Chelsea are already unimpressed with his goal drought since his arrival and it looks certain that he may leave the club soon with reports of him moving back to Spain hitting around the corners.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has reportedly reached agreements with both Sevilla and Atletico Madrid as he nears a possible January exit from Stamford Bridge, although the club is seemingly insistent on sourcing a replacement before letting the Spaniard go. "That means they'll have to pay for at least half of his nine million euros a year wages until the end of the season". "Chelsea are a club who are very hard to negotiate [with]".

Thibodeau entered the season on the hot seat, which is why he was desperately trying to keep Jimmy Butler rather than trade him. Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves will be playing for interim coach Ryan Saunders presumably for the rest of the season.

‘Shooting star’ Hudson-Odoi interested in Bayern move - Rudiger
He can develop here but he can develop in Germany as well - and don't forget Bayern Munich are also a big club. He said: "We've proposed a contract for quite a while, so we're waiting".

Caparros suggested Morata, who is said to be lacking confidence in West London, is keen on the move but admits a deal could be "very, very complicated" due to Chelsea being tough negotiators.

Speaking after yesterday's 1-1 Copa del Rey draw at Girona, he said: "The only thing I'm thinking about is the upcoming match against Levante".

"I don't know his [Suarez] situation now", said Emery.

"I say this because the numbers don't add up if Chelsea actually wanted him". Many teams want him, because he's worth it.
