Chelsea make Morata ultimatum to Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid must cough up this summer if they want to keep Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

Morata is on an 18 month loan at Atletico, where he can be signed permanently for €18m.

However, with Chelsea's appeal against a transfer ban rejected by FIFA this week, AS says they want Atletico to make a decision this summer.

If Atletico want to keep Morata, they must pay immediately, otherwise the striker will be recalled by the Blues.

Chelsea cannot make new additions for the next two windows, meaning they will be leaning on their loan players - including possibly Morata.
