Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata ‘too expensive’ for Borussia Dortmund


Borussia Dortmund is not willing to pay the price to land Chelsea striker Alvary Morata, sporting director Michael Zorc tells Funke Media.

BVB are still looking to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and fill the void that he left left in central attack when he departed for Arsenal in January.

“I’d still say that Morata is too expensive,” Zorc said, “Without knowing the exact sums involved.”

Recent reports indicated that BVB could be open for offers for Pulisic following the club’s tour of the United States in July.

Could Dortmund consider taking a forward on loan?

“Right now, I don’t rule out anything. Why should we limit ourselves 70 days before the window closes?

“Right now, I have the impression that the transfer market, not only for attackers, has escaped reality a bit. High fees are demanded.

“We must not do any crazy things. Even more so because we have players in our squad who can play that position and can score a certain number of goals, like Maximilian Philipp for instance.”

Dortmund has been busy, having already signed the likes of Frankfurt’s Marius Wolf, Denmark international Thomas Delaney, and back-up keepers Marwin Hitz and Eric Oelschlagel.
