Chelsea shockingly ready to accept cut price fee for star after Huddersfield draw

The rumours just will not go away when it comes to potential transfers Chelsea might be involved in and one that still lingers is that of Alvaro Morata.

The striker has been tipped to be on his way out of Chelsea next summer with his likely destination being Juventus as per the Sun.

Having spent time in Turin a few seasons back, Morata is said to be aiming for a return to the Serie A giants after a torrid season in England.

He was signed by Chelsea for around £70 million last summer according to the report by Sports Witness and was expected to hit the ground running in the Premier League, and that, he did not fail.

The 25-year old scored a good number of goals in his first few games at the club, most of them, headers.

These days the goals have run dry. Winter signing Olivier Giroud has stepped in and banged in the goals, becoming a favourite by the Stamford Bridge faithful.

According to Tuttosport, via Sports Witness, Chelsea have given up on Morata and are willing to accept a bid of around £50 million for his services, and Juventus are likely to be interested in the deal.

If that goes through, Chelsea will be losing a young promising striker with so many years ahead of him and will be stuck with Giroud, who is getting on the wrong side of 30 years and has only one year remaining on his current contract.

The Blues though will likely move in for other strikers in the market with Daily Mail saying Edison Cavani is the ideal replacement top officials at the club are looking to sign next summer.

Marco Alonso refuses to accept Chelsea at fault for damaging draw – lays blame elsewhere

Huddersfield secured Premier League survival after claiming a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Laurent Depoitre put the Terriers ahead before Alonso’s equaliser and David Wagner’s side battled it out to ensure their precious point.

But Alonso has slammed the Yorkshire outfit for their negative tactics and insists ref Mason should have done more to keep the game flowing.

The Spanish ace said: “We’re very disappointed. We were so unlucky, we dominated the game and conceded a silly goal and then we couldn’t score [a second goal].

“They played a bad game, trying to waste time from the first minute and I think the referee stopped it very late.

“Their goalkeeper was taking a minute over his goal-kicks from the first minute of the game and he only received a yellow card with five minutes to go.

“I don’t think that’s the right way, he should have stopped that before, but still we conceded the goal and failed to score from our chances.

“Today they defended with a lot of players, they were coming from playing against Man City and not conceding a goal so it’s not easy when they defend with six, seven or eight men in the box.

“We tried for the whole game and we were unlucky to concede the goal because I felt we were going to score sooner or later.’

Chelsea must now beat Newcastle and hope Liverpool lose at home to Brighton on the final day to claim an unlikely top-four finish.

Alonso added: “We have a game against Newcastle we have to go and win, and then we will see what happens with Liverpool.

“Then we have another week to focus on the FA Cup final and try to get a trophy for the fans.”
