  • Munir and Messi

After Sevilla signed Barcelona striker Munir El Haddadi, Atletico could have a clear run towards Morata, formerly of Real Madrid.

After completing a more than acceptable season on loan at Alavés a year ago, scoring 14 goals in 37 games, Munir has found chances of first team action few and far between on his return to Barcelona, the club where he came thropugh the youth system after signing from Rayo Majadahonda in 2011, when he was still only 15.

"The club would like to thank Munir El Haddadi for his dedication and commitment and wishes him all the best for the future", Barcelona said in a statement.

Morata has scored nine goals in 24 appearances so far this season but has struggled for regular game time under Maurizio Sarri. He has won one worldwide cap for Spain, in September 2014.

Winter storm continues into Saturday
As temperatures drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s overnight, rain will transition into snow as we head into Monday. We are already tracking our next chance for snow arriving on Friday with the possibility of accumulation again.

The league leaders want back-up for Luis Suarez after Sevilla agreed a one-million-euro ($1.15-million) deal to buy Spain global Munir on Friday, leaving the Uruguayan as the only No. 9 at the club, playing between Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele.

The German giants are said to be targeting the out of favour Spaniard as Niko Kovac looks to bolster his offensive options ahead of their battle for the Bundesliga and Champions League.

Munir's transfer is subject to a successful medical and the news of his move came swiftly after Sevilla revealed they had agreed a deal with Ajax to bring in Wober.

However, as of now, Barcelona are only interested in signing Morata to a loan deal according to reports, the final cost of which could rise as high as 10 million euros.
