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.

It is as of yet unknown whether Real Madrid want to keep hold of their academy product, or sell him on once again for a huge profit.

Chelsea are said to have opened talks with the European Champions over the purchase of Morata, who would be signed for a fee of around £40million.

Roman Abramovic is set to cast his eye over Morata once again next week as Spain play Italy in the last-16, with Italy being managed by incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with the 23-year old, who is the joint top goal scorer at Euro 2016 with there goals. His Real Madrid teammate Gareth Bale also has three.
