Morata or Falcao for Milan

Milan are reportedly chasing Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata, with Monaco’s Falcao as the alternative.

The Rossoneri are looking to sign a new forward this summer, as both Nikola Kalinic and André Silva failed to hit double figures this season.

According to this morning’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Morata has been identified as the number one target, with the Diavolo having tried to sign him last summer.

The stumbling block is UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body, who could throw Milan out of the Europa League later this month.

If that happens, the loss of revenue and the fact they won’t be in Europe would make Morata impossible.

Therefore, Gazzetta reports, the Rossoneri would turn to Radamel Falcao, who would join from Monaco in an exchange of loans with André Silva.

Both players are represented by Jorge Mendes who could work on setting up a deal, but Falcao’s wages would present an issue.

Silva would accept the move, as he has admitted to struggling in Italy and missing the sea.

If a loan swap can’t be arranged, Monaco would be willing to pay around €40m to sign the Portuguese, as would English side Wolverhampton Wanderers.
