The Two Players Atletico Madrid Are Prepared To Offer For Chelsea's Alvaro Morata
Atletico Madrid are prepared to offer not one but TWO of their players for Chelsea's Alvaro Morata.
Alvaro Morata has been subject to intense transfer speculation since the January transfer window opened.
Barcelona are interested, just like their La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid. Diego Simeone wants to reinforce his attack ahead of the second half of the season with Morata in mind.
While they are reluctant to fork out a huge fee, the club are reportedly ready to table two players in exchange for the out-of-favour Spaniard.

Nikola Kalinic arrived in Madrid during the summer transfer window, and he's failed to make an impression. He's only played nine league games and has just two league goals to his name.
The Croatian striker has already plied his trade in England's top flight having spent two season's at Blackburn Rovers.
Gelson Martins, meanwhile, is also deemed surplus to requirements and could be sold this month.
Atletico Madrid cannot sign new players without selling first because the club have met their capped wage limit of €293 million (£259 million) per annum stated by Football Espana.
Chelsea, on the other hand, remain in the market for a new striker. A host of names have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
From Argentina's Gonzalo Higuain to Bournemouth's Callum Wilson.
