Transfer: Chelsea tell AC Milan amount to pay for Morata

Chelsea and AC Milan have opened talks over a deal for striker Alvaro Morata.

However, the West London outfit told the Serie A giants they want £62m for the Spaniard.

Morata joined Chelsea in a club record £58m deal from Real Madrid last summer but struggled during his debut campaign in England.

Morata joined Chelsea to work with former boss Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri’s appointment has increased the likelihood of him leaving Stamford Bridge this summer.

Sarri wants to bring in Juventus star Gonzalo Higuain, having worked with the Argentine at Napoli.

Sky Sports reports that their willingness to sell Morata, Chelsea will not let him go on the cheap and have placed a price tag of £62m on the forward.

Milan’s new sporting director Leonardo is believed to have initiated talks with Chelsea and believes Morata is keen on a return to Italy.

Milan, though, are already facing scrutiny over their £200m spending spree last summer and are unlikely to have the means to stretch to Chelsea’s valuation.

Morata’s future is likely to depend on Chelsea’s chances of signing Higuain in the next fortnight but the Blues know Juventus are keen to sell having spent £99m on Cristiano Ronaldo.
