Chelsea have been linked with a move for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, who has grown frustrated at his lack of first team opportunities due to Zinedine Zidane’s preference for Karim Benzema to lead the line.

According to Italian media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (via Daily Mirror), Morata will snub Chelsea to join Serie A side AC Milan this summer.

The report claims AC Milan have been encouraged by Morata’s desire to return to the Serie A and will bid €60m (£51.9m) in order to convince the Real Madrid to sell.

AC Milan, backed by Chinese owners Rossoneri Sport Investment, will reportedly offer Morata a net salary of €7.5m (approximately £125,000-per-week after tax).
