Understand that...but morata wasn't the key forward last season and probably isn't considered that this season. The only two players guaranteed to be a starters in that final third are dybala and chiesa. Morata kean kulu and Cuadrado at times will be used somehow as the that third option.

We may not have one goal scoring machine but allegris teams play as a team and we often see the goals shared more. Ronaldos 30 goals may become 15 to 20 goals each by kean and morata.

No guarantees of course, but you add dybala with another 20, chiesa with 10, kulu 5 or 6, hopefully some midfielders get in and score...something that has been missing since vidal pogba and pirlo were around.

Time will tell.

I wonder if we should paid his extended loan for 10m. We are broke but for this deal, we don't asked any discount. 20m for 2 years loan seem very expensive and his option also around 35m (total 55m if we take it) right when he is in his last Atletico contract next year. Atletico is in need to dump Saul's salary when they agree to loan him. What will be their position if Morata came back?

There are cheaper option in the beginning of transfer window for short term like Giroud and Dzeko. Just curious

Haaland will not join us. Let the rich teams fight for him menwhile we make it clear from now to vlahovic that he is wanted and the key forward for us next season. Plant the seed now.

Send morata back.. hopefully kean continues to improve. At least we will have a handful of young players for that final third.

Forget about Vlahović or Isak etc. We're fine with Kean who will develop into a top striker and Morata who we did not spend 20m on for a loan not to buy him out completely.

Focus the 100+m it would take for another striker on the midfield. Zaniolo + someone like Partey would be fantastic.

That's a terrible lineup, sorry.

There is no way we keep morata beyond this year. At 35 million, there's no way.
Maybe if ATM lowers their demands to 10 million or something or Morty scores 25 30+, which I doubt it will happen.
