Morata fuels transfer speculation following Euro 2024 win: “It’s my second home”

By Ben Dixon -

After Spain’s victory against Italy, Alvaro Morata spoke about his future, especially given the links of a return to the country which his nation beat in their second game of Euro 2024, and his comments will be of interest to AC Milan, who have been linked with the striker in the past.

With Milan entering the mercato with no strikers officially confirmed to be at the club next season, there are some moves which need to be made soon. It has been reported that Luka Jovic will remain, but an announcement is still needed.

Elsewhere, the Rossoneri are seeking to add two more players to their attacking ranks. The preferred duo are believed to be Joshua Zirkzee and Armando Broja. However, the prospect of adding Alvaro Morata to their squad could be an opportunity too good to refuse.

Reports in previous days have suggested the Spaniard will leave Atletico Madrid this summer, and Milan have been interested previously, and they could act on the opportunity.

Following the victory against Italy, Morata spoke to Rai Sport about his future, with many suggestions that his future could be a return to Italy, and his comments have been relayed by Milan News.

Will Morata return to play in the Serie A?

“Will I return to Italy? I’ll certainly go back there on holiday, it is a beautiful place. It is my second home.”

  1. I’d obviously prefer JZ over Morata (due to age, potential, skill set, etc). In general, I think it’s wiser to invest in players in their early 20s instead of early 30s. But in this case, perhaps it could be a blessing in disguise because signing an older, proven goalscorer could open up a pathway to more playing time for Camarda within the next few years. Silver lining I suppose

      1. Would be silly money to have both on the books, one being upset at no playing time and other areas of the pitch in need of more attention.

        I’d be happy if we go into the season with Morata but I don’t expect it to happen, he’s on big money and will lose his value. Top class pro though, could age like Giroud but him being a bit less physical would give me concerns.

    1. That exactly it – we need an experienced striker so we don’t block Carmada.

      What we need to avoid is signing a new striker every transfer window and when Carmada is ready we’re trying to fix that problem.

      That’s what we did to Cutrone. We signed Silva and Kalinic in his breakthrough season (and when outscored them we signed Higuain and Piatek (who he out scored)). We then gave up and sold him….as you do.

      We’ve signed at least one new CF every season for over 15 years!
      And we

      1. I agree with MH here. Camarda would be first team ready in 1-2 year time. Morata would be an ideal, experienced figure to have. He also have played in the league, wife is Italian too, so won’t have any issue settling down.

        Sure he’s not the most prolific striker out there, but probably the one making most sense, while paving the way for Camarda to take over.

  2. Maybe I’m the only one who prefer Morata over Zirkzee. Goal scoring instinct and experience is more important than promise. 😄
