Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is reportedly ‘angry’ that his club priced him out of a move to the Premier League by demanding £80m from Manchester United and Chelsea.
According to Diario Gol via the Daily Express Morata ‘is hellbent on quitting Real Madrid’ and is unhappy that Real's demands meant United were put off and instead opted to sign Romelu Lukaku.
It's also reported Chelsea are unwilling to meet Los Blancos' valuation.
Real manager Zinedine Zidane rotated his squad to excellent effect in 2016/17 and the 24-year old only made 26 appearances in La Liga - 12 from the bench, netting 15 goals and providing five assists.
However, the Spain international was still a squad player, rarely starting the key matches, with either Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema preferred up front.
According to the report from Diario Gol, Morata does not want to spend another season down the pecking order at the Santiago Bernabeu, hence his frustration that Real are making it so hard for other clubs to sign him.
There may be a way out, though, with AC Milan closing in on signing him, per La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Spaniard has experience in Italy, having played for Juventus between 2014 and 2016, so a switch to the San Siro could be ideal.
