There’s no doubt that Alvaro Morata has found life difficult at Chelsea since completing a big-money move in 2017, making him the club’s most expensive arrival at the time.
The Spaniard struggled to hit the ground running last season and it looks like it’s de ja vu this time around.
Morata, who has bagged nine goals this term, is lacking in confidence and that shows in his performances.
And with AC Milan forward Gonzalo Higuain highlighted as a potential incoming this month, it seems he is edging ever closer to the exit door.
A loan move to Barcelona has been doing the rounds recently but it seems another European giant could be knocking on Maurizio Sarri’s door very soon.
That’s because Bayern Munich are set to make a move for the out of sorts Chelsea forward, according to the Daily Mail.
The German outfit have a Bundesliga and Champions League title in their sights this season so they are very much looking to bolster their attacking threat this month.
However, the only factor that could stand in the way of the transfer is Chelsea’s strong demands.
That’s because the Blues will only agree to let their number 29 leave on loan if Bayern are willing to pay £3million up front, on top of half of his £140,000-a-week wages.
And the way Morata has been playing, it would be understandable if the German side aren’t willing to do that.
Bayern have also made it clear that they are looking to bring in another Chelsea striker in Callum Hudson-Odoi this month.
However, unlike Morata, Sarri will be doing his utmost to keep the youngster at the club.
