In the absence of official confirmation, Álvaro Morata will become Atlético de Madrid player in the next few hours. His representative, Juanma Lopez, and his family are already in the capital of Spain and all are waiting impatiently for the definitive agreement to be closed so that the up-to-date Chelsea player will become a new Atletico player for the coming seasons.
Much to the liking of Simeone, Morata wants to return to the club that saw him grow as a footballer, but so that the operation is a reality, before a series of conditions have to be solved. The first and most important is that of his former Real Madrid teammate Gonzaló Higuaín. The Argentine striker is very close to leaving Milan to embark on a new adventure in English football. Chelsea seems to be the destination chosen by "El Pipita", but until it becomes official, those from London will not part with the Spanish international. Sarri, technician of the "blues", does not count on him, but needs a forward before giving the ok to the exit of the former Real Madrid player.
In addition to the arrival of Higuain to Chelsea, there is another fundamental factor that must be produced for Morata to land at the rojiblanco team: that Atlético sells to any player. The salary limit, regardless of whether the striker is willing to reduce the salary, forces the rojiblancos to get rid of some chips to be able to incorporate into Spanish and Kalinic and Gelson are on the exit ramp. Monaco could be the destiny of the Croatian who, like his Cape Verdean teammate, does not enter into Simeone's plans.
The Spanish tip would come yielded by about 5 million, with the option to buy at the end of the season for about 35 more. Cholo wants to have him at his orders, but it all depends on Kalinic leaving Atlético.
When the signing becomes official, Simeone will have two strikers of the highest level: Diego Costa and the Spaniard to accompany his star, Griezmann at the point of attack. Atlético wants to win the Champions League in the Metropolitano and Morata wants to be that scorer looking for El Cholo.
