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. In the end, it’s the club’s [decision] if they want to sign him or not, as with any other player. If the rumors 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.
