Alvaro Morata does have a track record of playing for Real Madrid. But, if indeed joining Barcelona, Jordi Alba guarantees he will get a warm welcome from other players.
Morata’s name later became a conversation again. Ahead of the January 2019 transfer market, Morata is said to be moving from Chelsea. The 26-year-old was called to offer himself to Barcelona.
The news is of course surprising. Because, Morata is a player educated by the Madrid academy. Bomber who is under contract with Chelsea is a big fan of Real Madrid, Barcelona’s main rival club.
Barcelona and Real Madrid have a long history of feuds. In the past, there were moves from both clubs and not all went smoothly. The case of Luis Figo’s transfer became quite hot.
However, Jordi Alba ensures that Morata will get a positive response from the Barca players. Alba already knew what Morata could do if he moved to Barca. He did not doubt Morata’s abilities.
“Morata is a player that I really respect. For years, he has been a top player. In the end, this is the decision of the club, whether they want to bring it or not,” Alba was quoted as saying in Four Four Two.
“If indeed the rumors are true, we will warmly welcome him, as do other new players,” said the Spanish national team player.
