alvaro morata

Barcelona full-back Jordi Alba has said that Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata would be well received at the Camp Nou if a move for the Spaniard comes into fruition.

Morata has been linked with a move to AC Milan or Barcelona in January. Regardless of his failure to take the Premier League by storm, Jordi Alba has spoken on a potential move to Barca for the Spain international.

“Morata is a player that I appreciate a lot. He has been a top player for many years. At the end, it’s the club’s [decision] if they want to sign him or not, as with any other player. If the rumours are true, he would be very welcome, as all the new players [are].”

The player’s link with Barcelona comes as a surprise to many going by his performances for the Blues in recent times.

However, Barcelona need cover for Luis Suarez but it remains to be seen if they’ll consider Morata as a target.
