Thohir targets Morata talks

Erick Thohir will reportedly take advantage of a meeting with Florentino Perez to discuss Inter’s interest in Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.

The young striker has impressed in the past year with the Spain Under-21 side and with the first team chances afforded him at the Santiago Bernabeu, but with competition at Los Blancos fierce, speculation continues to link him with a move away.

Whilst Arsenal are rumoured as interested, the Gazzetta dello Sport today insist that Inter remain in the hunt and will look to initiate talks later this month, when the two club Presidents get together on April 24.

The day that the Nerazzurri and Merengues present to the media their June 8 friendly, between club legends, it is speculated that Thohir and Piero Ausilio will look to discuss Morata’s potential availability.

The Gazzetta report that both Inter and Juventus were sniffing around the youngster in January and that La Beneamata were more willing than the Bianconeri to accept Madrid’s apparent proposal of a buyback clause included in any sale. 

Morata’s agent Juanma Lopez commented earlier this week that a move to San Siro ‘could happen’.
