Jordi Alba says he would be happy to see this Chelsea star at Nou Camp!

Barcelona are rumoured to sign this player and Alba would be happy to see him at Nou Camp.

Barcelona will be looking for a centre-back and a forward in the winter transfer window. The Catalan giants will be looking for a short-term replacement of Samuel Umtiti. They would also be keen to sign a long-term replacement of Luis Suarez. With winter transfer window weeks away, it seems Jordi Alba would be happy to see this Chelsea star at Nou Camp.

Alvaro Morata would be welcomed at Barcelona if the forward makes the move from Premier League club Chelsea, according to full-back Jordi Alba. The Barca full-back would be happy to see his struggling countryman make the move back to Spain. Morata linked with a surprise January move to the La Liga giants.

Morata is struggling at Stamford Bridge. Since making the move from Real Madrid in 2017, Morata has scored 16 goals in 45 Premier League matches for the Blues. Alba, a Spain team-mate of Morata’s, said he welcomes Morata at Barcelona. He said he would be happy to Morata return their country and join him at the Nou Camp.

Alba said, “Morata is a player that I appreciate a lot. He has been a top player for many years. At the end, it’s the club’s [decision] if they want to sign him or not, as with any other player. If the rumours are true. He would be very welcome, as all the new players [are].” 

Morata would likely only be allowed to leave Chelsea in the transfer window upcoming if coach Maurizio Sarri can source a replacement, with Olivier Giroud the only other senior striker in the squad. Belgian attacker Michy Batshuayi is one player who could fill the void. Valencia is keen to send him back to London in January.

Author’s take:

It’s tough to see Morata in the Barcelona playing XI. It’s true that Barcelona are looking for a new striker but Morata is the answer to their questions. Morata can’t dribble past defenders at ease like Suarez did. Also, he lacks confidence at the moment and thus maybe A.C Milan would be a better place for him as he is a good option to have counter-attacking and prefers long balls rather than quick passing.
