Scoring hasn’t come easy to Alvaro Morata this season, but the Spaniard scored twice for Chelsea on Saturday as they beat Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and marked the goals by not celebrating at all, instead looking completely devoid of emotion.
The striker wanted to vindicate himself after Gianfranco Zola questioned the player’s behaviour and performances, which is a harsh blow for Morata given not only Zola‘s current role but also his standing in Chelsea‘s history.
Not feeling respected, Morata wanted to respond with a gesture showing how he feels, particularly given his lack of backing from the club.
Meanwhile, the offers continue to arrive at Cobham for the player, with Sevilla one of those interested, while Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund made enquiries late on Saturday as well.
No decisions have been made yet, but all signs suggest Morata will be up for sale this winter and Chelsea have made it a priority to find a replacement this January as they will likely move him on.
For Chelsea, Morata has nine goals in 24 games this season and there is no denying that he could be better.
For Spain, however, he remains an important player with 13 goals in 27 games for La Roja.
