According the rumor mill, Alvaro Morata could be on his way to FC Barcelona for a loan by January.
The Spanish striker is currently going through a rough patch of football this season. With just 5 goals in the Premier League this year, the Spaniard is better off warming the bench.
Morata isn’t fitting into the style of play under Maurizio Sarri. The Spaniard is highly creative and has to have an equally supporting midfield and a cross-friendly team like the Catalans would give him the space he needs to grow.
The Catalans are in dire need for Luis Suarez’s backup, who is currently out undergoing stem cell therapy. The current roster isn’t impressive and the brass has enough money to rope in Morata.
The loan is expected to turn out into permanent move during summer, provided the Spaniard deliver what he promises.
With a market price of £54mn, Chelsea can use the cash raised by selling him to sign a player in January who would fit in Stamford.
Borussia Dortmund winger, Christian Pulisic is somebody whom the Blues require at the the moment and his £60mn cap would be affordable after selling Morata.
Selling Morata for buying a 20-year-old star would look crazy but is the necessity of the hour.
