Breaking: Morata joins Athletico Madrid on 18 month loan
Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has joined Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season.
The Spain international struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge following his £60million move from Juventus in July 2017.
He has made 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring 16 times, but has not started a top-flight game since January.
Now – following the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, Manager Maurizio Sarri has sanctioned his exit.
