Real Madrid are readying bid to re-sign striker if they can’t buy Lewandowski

Spain forward has found back of net just once since turn of year and is facing serious struggle to make World Cup squad

REAL MADRID are preparing a bid to re-sign Alvaro Morata in the summer, according to reports.

The Spain striker, 25, has endured a dismal start to 2018, netting just once since the turn of the year — and was left out of the squad for their recent international friendlies.

However, should they fail to land the Pole, The Express claim they are considering bringing Morata back to the Bernabeu for a third spell.

He started his career at Real Madrid, before being sold to Juventus in 2014.

But two years later, the Spanish giants executed their £26million buy-back clause to bring him back.

However, he lasted just a season and was sold to Chelsea for £65m last summer.

After a bright start to life in the Premier League, he began to struggle and he only scored his first goal of the year in the 2-1 win over Leicester on March 18.

Real Madrid are still hoping to land long-term target Lewandowski at the end of the season.

And should they sign the Pole, it may ironically open the door for Bayern to move for Morata as a replacement.
