Milan meet for Morata

It’s reported Milan met with a representative for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata today, as they consider a summer bid.

The Rossoneri have made it clear they want an upgrade on Nikola Kalinic for next season, and have been heavily linked with Andrea Belotti and Ciro Immobile.

Now though Sky Italia is reporting that CEO Marco Fassone and sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli met with Beppe Bozzo at Casa Milan today.

Bozzo is an intermediary for Morata, and previously negotiated with the Diavolo when they enquired about the striker last summer.

The Spaniard ultimately joined Chelsea, but it’s thought he’s unhappy at Stamford Bridge.

Juventus are interested in bringing him back, but Milan also admire Morata and will try to find the right structure for a deal.

Due to impending Financial Fair Play sanctions, they won’t be able to spend the required €60m straight away, but there could be a deal based on a loan with obligation to buy.

It’s claimed Bozzo also pointed to his new client Simone Zaza as a potential alternative, after 13 Liga goals for Valencia this season.
