At the half-point of this season the top European clubs have to decide which footballers are no longer needed or whose wages are inappropriate to the level the player represents. Some footballers lack form, while others simply can’t find a place in the lineup. Spanish giants Real Madrid, after selling Mesut Ozil back in August, could be dismissing other well-known players who would probably land in the English Premier League.
Here are the three Real Madrid stars which are likely to land at a Premier League club:
The 21-year-old forward is a star in the U-21 Spain national team scoring 12 goals in 11 appearances, however he is not given enough opportunities at Santiago Bernabeu. Since Mourinho had left the Spanish starlet has not started a single La Liga game in the Starting 11. Morata is likely to leave Los Galacticos for a less competitive club where he would be given a first team chance. The €12 million-rated striker could be making his way to Arsenal London, as the club is said to be searching for a young goal-scoring striker. This transfer window Morata is said to make a move to Etihad Stadium on a six-month loan and later move to England on a permanent deal.
Although he is regarded as the next best thing, Real Madrid cannot afford to give him chances on a regular basis owing to the huge competition for the title race. A loan deal would be ideal for all the three parties here – Madrid can benefit with the experience he can gain from playing elsewhere, Arsenal can get a quality replacement for Olivier Giroud and most importantly Morata can get a decent run in the first team.
