Atletico Madrid ready to send Morata back to Chelsea

Atletico Madrid are ready to send Alvaro Morata back to Chelsea.

AS says the striker's loan deal at Atletico Madrid is in danger of being terminated just six months into an 18-month agreement.

It was hoped Morata would return to his best form under Atletico coach Diego Simeone.

However, the 26-year-old has scored just six goals in 16 appearances.

And it has since transpired that Atletico will be forced to pay Chelsea £15million to keep Morata at the Wanda Metropolitano until 2020.

It's reckoned Simeone is assessing his options and weighing up a move for a more effective striker.

And that would see Morata return to Chelsea, with his future in even more doubt.
