Reports: Angry Real Madrid Star Snubs Zinedine Zidane Handshake, Wants Out
One of Real Madrid’s stars was furious when he got subbed on the weekend and refused to shake Zinedine Zidane’s hand. Meanwhile, Manchester United and Chelsea have been alerted by reports he wants to leave Los Blancos.
Alvaro Morata started the game against Sevilla, while Karim Benzema was rested. However, the 24-year-old striker, who has already netted 20 goals this season, didn’t have the best of matches and got replaced after just 61 minutes.
The Spaniard, though, didn’t seem too impressed with the decision by Zidane to replace him and snubbed a handshake with the coach as he walked off.
According to AS, Morata is frustrated with his second-choice role at Real and wants to leave the club at the end of the season to become the main striker at one of Europe’s top clubs.
Chelsea and United are reportedly monitoring his situation, with Blues boss Antonio Conte understood to be a huge fan of the striker.
Morata had already been on Chelsea’s radar last season and the Premier League champions could pounce on him amidst rumours that Diego Costa will go to China or return to Atletico Madrid.
United, meanwhile, have also expressed their interest and Jose Mourinho allegedly informed Morata’s inner circle that there would be a place in his line-up at Old Trafford next season. Only Cristiano Ronaldo, with 35 strikes, has scored more goals than Morata for the club this season.
The Real youth product has netted three more goals than Benzema, despite playing over 1000 minutes less.
