Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has reportedly finalised his switch to Atletico Madrid and a deal will be officially announced on Monday.
The Spain international, left out of the Blues’ matchday squad for their last three matches, has been in talks with Atleti for the past week.
After enduring a torrid year at Stamford Bridge, with the goals drying up since the start of 2018, Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Nicolo Schira suggests that Morata has finally been granted a move away.
Atletico have supposedly reached a loan agreement with Chelsea and can turn that into a permanent transfer in the summer for a fee of £48.5m.
Meanwhile, the Blues are are also expected to confirm the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus in the next 24 hours as Morata’s replacement.
