Atletico Madrid are ready to drop the asking price for Inter Milan target Alvaro Morata to €16-17 million.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Colchoneros are no longer holding out for a fee of €21 million for the 30-year-old Spanish international, who is also a target for Roma and Juventus.

Inter have made Morata one of their main targets in the striker position after pulling the plug on their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku.

Reportedly, the former Chelsea, Juventus, and Real Madrid man is the target who Simone Inzaghi prefers.

There is no question about whether Morata would be able to adapt to Serie A. He has proven to be a reliable option in the Italian top flight during four seasons at the Bianconeri across two different spells.

Moreover, Roma are also keen on signing Morata. Giallorossi coach Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified the 30-year-old as his main target in attack.

And Juventus could also decide to bring Morata back for a third time.

However, the price tag will play a big role in determining whether Morata goes back to Serie A or not.

Atletico Madrid Lower Asking Price For Inter, Roma & Juventus Target Alvaro Morata

Atletico’s initial asking price for Morata was reported to be around €21 million.

Initial reports indicated that this was a release clause in the Spaniard’s contract.

However, it now looks as though Atletico are instead asking for that fee as it would be the amount they require to not take a capital loss on Morata’s sale.

According to the Corriere, however, the La Liga giants are wavering a bid.

The newspaper reports that they would now be willing to accept a fee of around €16-17 million.

This is much closer to Inter’s reported offer of around €15 million.
