Chelsea open talks over Real Madrid forward

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovic attended the Euro 2016 clash between Spain and Croatia this as he prepared to make a move for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

Morata scored Spain’s only goal of the game in a surprise 2-1 defeat, and recently completed a move back to Real Madrid after spending two years at Juventus. Real Madrid opted to activate a buy back clause in the strikers contract, taking the hitman back to the Spanish capital for just £23million.
