Bayern Munich have stepped their pursuit for Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata as the German giants are keeping their tab on the struggling forward.
Morata’s day at the Stamford Bridge seems to be numbered as the Spanish international is no more the preferred option for Maurizio Sarri. The Blues manager has opted to field Eden Hazard as a false nine which has further ceased Morata’s path to the starting lineup.
The striker arrived from Real Madrid last season but hasn’t been able to underline his authority in the Premier League. He has managed only nine goals so far and it remains to be seen whether he stays at the club or not.
Bayern are planning a short term loan deal for the talented striker. The Bundesliga side badly needed a push in their quest of the German league title and they believe Morata could be the player who could guide them to glory this season.
Chelsea have demanded an outright £3m loan fee and Bayern are also required to pay his half wage which is in the tune of 70,000. A number of other clubs are also courting his signature so they need to make a quick move if they really want the deal to go through.
