All summer, Alvaro Morata was linked to an exit from Real Madrid, with both Chelsea and Manchester United being interested in his services.

But Milan managed to get his signature and have named him the new captain for the upcoming season. In addition to Bonucci, Milan have signed up Silva, Borini, Rodriguez and many more.
News is also coming in that they are close to signing both Renato Sanches and Belotti in he next couple of weeks, which will defiantly make them a team to watch next season.
But Morata will be a huge coup. The Spanish striker was huge hit at Juventus, before returning home to Real Madrid.
This is what the Milan CEO Marco Fassone had to say,
‘It’d be nice to have one from Andrea Belotti, Morata or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. We’ll see who the choice lands on, even if there are also other names who haven’t been splashed on the front pages yet.
‘Evidently we are still thinking of doing something in that position.’
