Routine Serie A Target Morata Angling for Atleti Exit

Alvaro Morata has voiced his malcontent for his current situation at Atletico Madrid and in Spain and could be back on the radar for all the Italian powerhouses that pursued him in the recent past. He vented to Marca (via Calciomercato).

“The simplest thing for me would be to leave the country considering what I experience when I go out. It’d be a lot easier if went abroad. My kids don’t understand why some people are so angry at me. I could have left last summer. I had better offers from great teams financially speaking. However, I had the illusion of being able to win with Atletico Madrid. The way people react to our games and victories weighs a lot.”

Morata isn’t pleased with his team being linked to other strikers.

“It’s up to the club to comment on what’s being written on the papers. If I see that they are considering eight strikers, it means that I’m not a priority. I’m almost 32 and can’t stay put not to play.”

“I’ve talked a lot with Diego Simeone. Each summer, it seems like I don’t fit his schemes, but that’s not the case. I have no problem with him. We often chat about life, and he helped me a lot. However, there are some things beyond my control. I don’t know whether I’m in his or the team’s plans. We’ll address that when we’ll get back to work.”

Morata recorded 21 goals and 5 assists across all competitions last season. Juventus, Milan, Inter, Roma, and Napoli all took an interest in him in the last few windows.
