Real Madrid ready to relent and let Morata leave?

Posted on January 17, 2014 by admin

The case of Alvaro Morata and Real Madrid is a curious one and it has taken a few twists in the past year or so. And there could be another one coming soon, with rumours that manager Carlo Ancelotti and the club are ready to siften their stance on the promising young striker and let him leave the Santiago Bernabeu during this January transfer window.

When Jose Mourinho was getting grief from the media and fans alike last season about his failure to use promising youngsters, Morata was just about the only one he seemed to like and the young striker rewarded his faith with two massive goals coming on as a late sub.

So we expected him to feature even more this season, especially after the departure of Gonzalo Higuain, but it just has not happened for him. Whether it is that Ancelotti is unsure of him, his form has dropped or simply that Jese Rodriguez has overtaken him with some good performances, the upshot is that Morata is getting no game time and seems keen to go elsewhere to keep his progress going if Madrid are not going to use him.

That could be on loan or, as has been speculated this week, as a permanent deal with Madrid retaining the option to buy him back, as was done with Carvajal and Bayer Leverkusen last summer. According to British news website Metro, Ancelotti and Madrid are ready to let either of these happen after Morata’s chance to show what he can do against Osasuna this week was scuppered by injury before it got started.

Morata is fit to play again, but is unlikely to get a chance before the end of January, unless it is in the Copa Del Rey next round against Espanyol, but that would leave hardly any time for any transfer to be done. There are some good clubs interested in Morata, where he should get some good experience including Arsenal in the Premier League as well as Inter Milan and Juventus in Serie A.

Going to one of these clubs could be the only way for Morata to salvage his future at Real Madrid and that is surely what everyone wants.
