Barcelona Ready To Make Sensational Swoop For Chelsea Star, But Only If Arsenal Play Ball And Push A Deal Through For Spanish International
Alvaro Morata's time at Chelsea has been rather torrid and the misfiring striker is likely to be leaving the Blues in the January transfer window, as Maurizio Sarri looks to offload the attacker in order to bring in a new face at Stamford Bridge.
However, Morata's final destination has somewhat of a cloudy look to it, but according to Spanish outlet SPORT, Barcelona are the latest club to enquire about the 26-year-old's services.
Signing for Chelsea for £60m from Real Madrid, Morata appears to be on his way out after just one season, but in a shock turn of events it's Real's biggest rivals Barcelona that are looking to lure Morata to the Camp Nou in an astonishing transfer deal, but the La Liga heavyweights can only push through the deal if Arsenal manage to sign Denis Suarez, who looks to be another player on the move in the next few weeks.
Suarez has been handed a price tag of £10m, but Unai Emery is unsure at the moment whether that fee is worthy of Suarez's signature, who is eager to try and force a move away from Barca and try to get back into the Spanish national squad.
So, while there's a lot of negotiating and dealings to do on Morata's switch to Barca, it all ultimately hinges on what Arsenal decide to do with Suarez, and while Emery would happily take Suarez on loan that would probably not play into Barcelona's favour and Morata may have to look elsewhere to secure first-team football.
In a huge development, Morata's horror time at Chelsea is a little closer to end, but the Blues will be hoping that their fellow London club Arsenal can do them a favour and be the catalyst for a move taking place
