Atletico Madrid ready to cough up to Chelsea for permanent Morata signing

Atletico Madrid are ready to cough up to Chelsea for the permanent signing of Alvaro Morata.

The Telegraph says Atletico are preparing a bid for Morata after being told to pay £50m to keep him from returning to Chelsea.

Last week, the Blues issued an ultimatum demanding a permanent transfer this summer or a recall from his 18-month loan deal.

And now Atletico are lining up a move to avoid having to send him back to England.

The Spaniard has returned to pre-season training with Atletico and is believed to be optimistic that a deal can be a struck.
