AC Milan’s next target – Alvaro Morata

AC Milan are ready to spend £61m for Real Madrid striker Morata and pay him £166,000 a week.

The Rossoneri are close to signing Alvaro Morata as they continue their summer shopping spree, claims La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Morata has been a target for English sides Chelsea and Manchester United, but neither club has managed to agree terms, with United turning to Romelu Lukaku as another alternative.

Milan CEO Marco Fassone has said that the club is still looking for a striker, listing Andrea Belotti and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as other potential candidates for the forward position:

‘It’d be nice to have one from Andrea Belotti, Morata or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. We’ll see who the choice lands on, even if there are also other names who haven’t been splashed on the front pages yet.

‘Evidently we are still thinking of doing something in that position.’
