Al­varo Mo­rata


Inside Sport - - PUNTER’S CHANCE -

A man with a point to prove. A“er he played a ma­jor part in tak­ing Ju­ven­tus to the Cham­pi­ons League fi­nal as well as a do­mes­tic dou­ble in 2015, the Spa­niard was taken back home by Real Madrid only to spend the next two sea­sons as un­der­study to Karim Ben­zema. It was ob­vi­ously not enough for Mo­rata, as he had am­bi­tions to be the main marks­man at a top club. He has a tough job at Chelsea re­plac­ing Diego Costa, who has scored 52 goals and won two league ti­tles in three sea­sons, but whose re­la­tion­ship with man­ager An­to­nio Conte has com­pletely bro­ken. With reg­u­lar foot­ball now a guar­an­tee in west Lon­don, Mo­rata should do some dam­age.
