Mourinho wants Alvaro Morata at all costs

Andy Mattioli

Jose Mourinho’s main priority this summer remains Spanish striker Alvaro Morata.

Morata has been linked with the Giallorossi ever since Tammy Abraham suffered a long-term injury which ruled him out for the majority of next season.

Morata – along with Gianluca Scamacca – represented the capital club’s first choice to replace Abraham.

However, Atletico’s excessive demands got in the way of Roma’s negotiations with Morata – the club had even struck an agreement with the player’s entourage.

However, according to La Repubblica, Jose Mourinho still wants Morata at all costs – despite Roma being close to a deal for Marcos Leonardo of Santos – and is willing to wait for him until the final days of the transfer window.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, keep asking for €20 million which is the total value of Morata’s release clause.
