The future of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata hangs in the balance as the club consider keeping hold of the youngster. Inter Milan were said to be close to securing the signing of the 21-year-old forward with talks taking place between president Erick Thohir and Madrid supremo Florentino Perez. However, according to a report in Gazzetta dello Sport, Madrid are re-considering selling Morata after the injury to Jese Rodriguez. Jese underwent surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament last month that was initially deemed to be “successful”, but has suffered a set-back in his recovery with an inflammation. With the player set to be out for at least six months, Madrid could delay the departure of Morata which will come as a blow to his suitors. The forward has found playing-time hard to come by at the Bernabeu this season with the likes of Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale all ahead of him in the pecking order. That had sparked rumours of a move to the Premier League with Arsenal and Manchester United expressing an interest until Inter started having discussions.
