Chelsea joins bid for Alvaro Morata

Granada CF v Real Madrid CF - La Liga

There are reports that Chelsea's billionaire owner Roman Abramovich has approved a £70m bid for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

The ​​Mirror have reported that Chelsea are seeking a replacement for Diego Costa, who is on the verge of a return to Atletico Madrid.

The Spanish international has reportedly agreed to terms with United, but Abramovich has given the go-ahead to join the battle for his signature.

Los Blancos are believed to be reluctant to sell the player for purely a fee, but would rather initiate a swap deal should they allow Morata to leave.

The European champions would look to offer both Morata and Keylor Navas to United in exchange for David de Gea, while Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could be part of the demands in a deal with the Premier League champions.

Morata scored netted 19 in 43 appearances for Real Madrid last season, but his number of starts was limited under Zinedine Zidane.

The French coach reportedly wants the 24-year-old to stay at the club, but Morata is desperate for regular game time, which can't be guaranteed at the Bernabeu.

United are still considered favourites to sign Morata as they look to secure a replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
