Alvaro Morata wants £110,000 a week to join Chelsea

Alvaro Morata wants Chelsea to almost triple his wages if he moves to the club from Juventus, according to the London Evening Standard.

The Spain striker is being linked with a move to the Premier League and Stamford Bridge is reportedly one of his preferred destinations. 

However, as much as he may want to renew his relationship with incoming boss Antonio Conte, who he worked under at Juve, he may only do that if he is given £110,000 a week - or just under £6million a year.

Negotiation needed

The same source reports that Chelsea were only planning to offer the highly-rated forward £91,000 a week, but the player wants over £20,000 more than that. 

Real Madrid are expected to trigger a buy-back clause on the forward, so it is actually more likely to be the La Liga giants - and not Juventus - who Chelsea may be forced to negotiate with.

The buy-back clause is worth £23million, but it is expected that Real will want around £40million to make as much of a profit as possible. 

Huge demands 

Roman Abramovich is willing to splash out this summer as he looks to turn Chelsea back into title contenders, but he might want to think carefully in light of Morata's wage demands. 

Regardless, nothing will happen until after the Euros, where the 23-year-old is hoping to impress for Spain. 

He didn't do that in their opening fixture, an uninspiring 1-0 win over the Czech Republic, but will be hoping to get on the scoresheet in their second game against Turkey. 

Manchester United and Arsenal are also being linked with a bid for him, but if he's asking for that kind of money, it seems Chelsea are one of the few clubs who will be able to give it to him.
