Sporting director Joaquin Caparros announced that Sevilla have ended their interest in Alvaro Morata after Chelsea’s “impossible” demands

Los Rojiblancos were strongly linked with a six-month loan deal for Morata in this month’s transfer window after the Spaniard’s agent, Juanma Lopez, allegedly met Caparros to begin talks.

But, upon completing the signing of Munir El Haddadi from Barcelona, Sevilla have ended their pursuit of the former Real Madrid striker.

“Sevilla are an appealing team for a lot of players and Morata wanted to come,” said Caparros, according to Evening Standard.

Zidane: Bale’s sale is not needed to bring Hazard to Real Madrid

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane insists there is no need to sell Gareth Bale to make room for Eden Hazard this summer.

“We had talks but when we started talking about fees, we quickly realised that it was impossible and we gave up.

“We focused on those who have come, with whom we are very happy. Munir was wanted by a lot of other teams but he wanted to come with us.”

Morata, who has scored five goals in 16 Premier League games this season, has also been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.
