Alvaro Morata whose loan deal with Arsenal was on the verge of completion is now suddenly looking to collapse because Carlo Ancelotti has changed his mind regarding the future of the highly rated Spaniard.
The north London club have been heavily linked with the Spain Under-21 international of late, with many media organisations even claiming that Gunners head coach Arsene Wenger had already agreed to take Morata on a six-month loan deal now that the winter transfer window has finally opened again for business for the season.
In fact, it had been thought that all that the Frenchman now needed to do was agree a loan fee with the La Liga giants for Morta – thought to be somewhere in the region of £1.7m – for the move to take place.
Madrid boss Ancelotti seemingly had a late change of heart regarding the striker and just how big a role he may play up front for Madrid in the second half of this campaign. First it was thought that Morata would be loaned to Arsenal with an option of signing him as Jesse Rodriguez seems to have been occupying his starting berth in the eyes of the Italian Manager.
