Real Madrid could offer Arsenal target Alvaro Morata to Valencia this summer as they join the chase for exciting youngster Paco Alcacer, it has emerged.
The 21-year-old striker is a highly regarded prospect at the Bernabeu, though he seems set to move on at the end of this season as he seeks to play regular first-team football at this important point in his career. With some world class names ahead of him in the pecking order at Real, Morata seems unlikely to break into Carlo Ancelotti’s starting lineup, and the club may now look to offer him in a swap deal as they eye another signing upfront.
The Spanish giants look set to join the likes of Juventus, Bayern Munich and Liverpool in the hunt for Alcacer, who has been in terrific form for Valencia this season, scoring 10 goals and contributing three assists in 21 appearances. Valencia won’t want to lose such a promising player, but FootballDirectNews.com understands that they could be tempted into a deal if they are able to land another quality youngster in Morata. Real Madrid want Alcacer and are ready to offer Morata to get him, a European football insider explained. “This would be a good deal for Valencia and I would expect there to be official talks in the summer. “
