Chelsea transfer news : Morata in Madrid for his medicals
Having completed their long-awaited move for Gonzalo Higuain last night, the Blues are reportedly set to release Alvaro Morata to Atletico Madrid for the rest of the campaign.
The Spaniard failed to live up to the hype and Sarri his more than ready to cash in on his signature this month.
In fact, the Sun are reporting that the 26-year-old striker has landed in his home country ahead of his medical with Atletico Madrid.
The La Liga giants are ready to give Morata another opportunity to revamp his career and they’ve reportedly reached an agreement with the Blues for his signature.
The British outlet said that a £4.4m loan deal has been sealed between both clubs and he could be unveiled latest on Friday, should everything work out as expected.
Morata scored just six goals in all the appearances he’s made for the Blues throughout this season, and Sarri isn’t happy with his goal return.
The former Napoli manager will now hope that his new buy — Gonzalo Higuain who was his former player during his days at Napoli — help the team score many goals that will be enough to see them qualify for Champions League next season.
Meanwhile, the former Real Madrid forward won’t partake in tonight’s clash against Tottenham due to the Blues inability to unveil him before Wednesday.
The player, who has chosen to wear jersey number 9, will hope to justify the huge faith impose in him by Chelsea supporters across the world.
Should he perform brilliantly, he could be signed on a permanent deal before the start of next season.
