Europa League holders Chelsea have concluded plans to offload loanee Alvaro Morata to Spain permanently according to the latest reports emanating from the British media.

His great start fizzled out towards the winter transfer window of that season (2017/18 season).
Morata scored 24 goals in 72 appearances for Chelsea during his time at the club.
He has seen an improvement in form since his move back to Atletico Madrid in January.
Alvaro Morata recently talked about his desire to stay at Atletico Madrid beyond this summer.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Chelsea are ready to sanction a £50m deal to Atletico Madrid for ex-Juventus star Alvaro Morata.
