After a season of mixed fortune for Alvaro Morata, the Chelsea striker is now being linked with a return to Italy.
Chelsea are reportedly interested in Juve striker Gonzalo Higuain which could kill Morata’s chances at Stamford Bridge next season, and this has prompted former AC Milan defender Luca Antonini to urge Milan to make a move for Morata. Antonini even claimed that Morata have already chosen to move to Milan.
Speaking to RMC, former Milan star Antonini encouraged the Serie A giants to pursue a move for the Spaniard over one for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, believing both the player and club are desperate for the deal to be done.
“I think Morata and Milan have already chosen [each other]. Clearly there is the need to convince Chelsea, who hold his registration,” Antonini said.
“As far as I am concerned, I see the Spaniard as more suitable for Milan than a player like Benzema.”
