Sevilla Pull Out Of Morata Race
Spanish La Liga club, Sevilla, will no more push to sign Chelsea forward, Alvaro Morata.
Sevilla had shown interest in the Spanish international, with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona also in the race to get his signature.
But Sevilla president Pepe Castro, says the situation has become difficult in the passing of the day, which has forced his side to pull out.
"Morata was enthusiastic about coming to Sevilla," Castro told Onda Cero.
"We spoke to him and his agent.
"But it's true that the situation became more difficult because there are many strong and powerful clubs that got involved and we saw that there was no longer that possibility.
"There are many clubs, some in Spain, also Inter [Milan] and Monaco who are interested in him. For us, it was an option that we later saw that it was not possible."
Sevilla instead signed Munir El Haddadi from Barcelona on a permanent transfer.
Morata, whose Chelsea contract runs until June 2022, is looking to revive his career after a difficult 18 months in London.
Chelsea paid a reported club-record fee of around £60 million to Real Madrid for his signature in the summer of 2017; and he has scored five goals in 16 Premier League appearances this season but has not found the back of the net in the league since Nov. 4.
