According to various reports both in Italy and in England, Ac Milan are preparing a swap deal with Chelsea: the Italian side will offer the Blues goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma, as the London club this summer could lose Thibaut Courtois.

On the other hand, Ac Milan will sign striker Alvaro Morata who is keen to go back to Italy and play again in the Serie A after his two seasons with Juventus.

Obviously talks between the two clubs will begin only if Ac Milan won’t be excluded from the next Europa League.

Blanc knocked out Chelsea from the Champions League with PSG last season

It seems Maurizio Sarri will become the new Chelsea manager this week: however, Blues’ legend Marcel Desailly has another ideal candidate for this role.

“I would be very happy if Laurent Blanc becomes the new manager of Chelsea, but if it doesn’t work, I want to give another chance to Conte,” Desailly told Goal.

According the the former Chelsea defender, who played and won the 1998 World Cup with Laurent Blanc, the Italian manager made some mistakes in the team’s tactical system: He had to make some concessions about his system, his philosophy and his method of working. In 2016-2017, he won the Premier League with a revolutionary three-man defence. It was a weird year because a lot of teams were in transition, like Manchester City, Liverpool and United.” Desailly explained.

Also, Conte was wrong when he sold striker Diego Costa: With Diego Costa, somewhere they must regret it,” Desailly said. “They believed that Morata had Diego Costa in him. No, it’s Giroud and Morata who together give Costa. He was a target man like Giroud can be, while possessing the agility shown by Morata.”

MILAN, ITALY - OCTOBER 15: Mauro Emanuel Icardi of FC Internazionale Milano celebrates his third goal during the Serie A match between FC Internazionale and AC Milan at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on October 15, 2017 in Milan, Italy.

Chelsea are looking to improve their squad this summer after a disappointing season saw them finish fifth in the Premier League, failing to qualify for the next Champions League.

And one area the Blues will be particularly keen to strengthen is their attack with £ 80m new striker Alvaro Morata that partially fulfilled the expectations after a patchy season.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, known for their bold transfer claims, say the Blues have made an offer of £96m (€100m) for Serie A top-scorer Mauro Icardi.

It is believed the 25-year-old has got a £ 102m release clause, valid only for clubs outside the Serie A, that can be exert before July 15th.

Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the Inter striker after his stunning forms his season.

The Argentine, who was not selected for the World Cup in Russia due to his bad relationship with Leo Messi, netted 29 goals in just 34 Serie A matches to help Inter finish fourth and secure Champions League qualification.

The reportedly incoming Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri wants £179m to be made available to revamp his squad next summer, Italian reports claim.

The former Napoli head coach was replaced by ex Blues manager Carlo Ancelotti at the end of the 2017-18 season following another failed Scudetto bid, with rivals Juventus eventually pipping the Naples club to the title.

Italian outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that he is keen to bring three players with him to London from the Azzurri: central defender Kalidou Koulibaly, full-back Elseid Hysaj and midfielder Piotr Zielinski.

Sarri is expected to be named as the new Blues boss soon, though the report claims he is waiting for Roman Abramovich’s approval.

Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain is also a target, and there is a possibility that Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata could be used in the deal for a swap.

Yesterday Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata and his agent met Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici so many interpreted this meeting as the first step for a possible return of the Spanish player to the Italian champions.

However, today, Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta denied the club is interested in Morata: “These are simply rumours. I want to deny them, we don’t want to deceive anyone”. Marotta said during the launch of a book about Juventus. “We already have a great attack of international calibre, so it’s an area where we don’t have to make any bets. Therefore, at this point, any operation seems totally utopian”.

Giuseppe Marotta also claimed there’s the chance Morata himself would love to play again for Juventus as he remembers the time he spent with the “Bianconeri”: Now we are in the most important phase of the transfer market, so as always, every day, they link Juventus with many players,” Marotta went on. “That also applies to the Morata affair which is on the agenda today. The fact is that the most important players of this Agnelli cycle who have gone away all carry with them a great memory of Juventus, and almost all of them want to savour the Juventus climate”.

Atletico Madrid are lining-up a summer move to land Alvaro Morata from Chelsea as they remain keen to replace Antoine Griezmann if the Frenchman leaves the club, according to Italian publication Tuttosport this morning.

We reported earlier last night that Morata and Lopez were spotted in Milan on Wednesday ahead of a meeting with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici, who’s reportedly closing on a move to sign also full-back Matteo Darmian from Manchester United and Premier League.

Juventus are closing on a move to sign also Liverpool star Emre Can and Italian goalkeeper Mattia Perin.

Current Atletico Madrid manager Diego Pablo Simeone was spotted while shouting at Alvaro Morata in Champions League clash against Real Madrid earlier in 2017 and some reports in Spain suggested he asked him to join Los Colchoneros in the future.

However Morata himself revealed a few weeks later: “He came to me and asked me a croissant from the brand I have launched.” 

The 25-year-old joined Chelsea in July on a permanent move from Real Madrid.

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata was pictured in Milan with his agent Juanma Lopez today.

The Blues forward, coming from a patchy first season at Stamford Brigde, was in Italy to meet Juventus sport director Fabio Paratici, with whom he had lunch on Wednesday.

Morata, whose pregnant wife is Italian, would love to return to Serie A, as he probably lived the best two campaigns of his career while at Juventus between 2014 and 2016.

The Spanish striker, who was let down by his exclusion from the Spain squad who will travel to Russia for World Cup 2018, moved to London from Real Madrid in a £ 70m deal last summer and Juventus would be keen to sign him back for a similar fee.

The talks have just started.

HERE: Morata with Paratici and his agent Juama Lopez in Milan today.
