Alvaro Morata is expected to stay at Atletico Madrid despite having been linked with various clubs this summer.

The Spanish striker was rumored to be Jose Mourinho’s preferred choice to replace injured Tammy Abraham at Roma.

However, Atletico’s demands for the player caused the Giallorossi to focus on other transfer targets.

In the meantime, Morata is now edging closer to a new deal with Atleti, reports Fabrizio Romano.

After discussing his role at the club with head coach Diego Simeone, Morata has grown increasingly convinced of extending his stay in Madrid until 2027.
