Chelsea signed Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for a record transfer fee of £60 million last summer, to fill the sizable boots of Diego Costa who left them to join his former club Atletico Madrid.

Despite a dazzling start in England, with eight goals in his first seven games, the 25 year old has struggled to find his feet in the Premier League this season. He also struggled with mysterious back injury which kept him sidelined for a long period.

The Spain International has just scored 15 goals 47 appearances in all competitions in 2017-18 with 11 of them coming in the Premier League. He even missed out on Spain’s World Cup squad.

The Spaniard has been heavily linked with a return to his former club Juventus ahead of the transfer window, where he enjoyed two successful years from 2014-2016 scoring 27 goals in 93 appearances and won 5 trophies. Reports suggest Serie A giants could make a bid for him this summer or look to take him on a loan.

Chelsea striker Morata met with the Turin side sporting director Fabio Paratici in Milan on Wednesday, Goal can confirm. He was photographed meeting with his former club, further speculating the links that he can leave the London club just after 1 year.

The meeting was also attended by the player’s representative Juanma Lopez, who is believed to searching potential targets for his client.

Ac Milan have also shown interest in the Striker and have already held initial talks with his Italian agent Beppe Bozzo on Tuesday about a potential move. But Morata didn’t attend that meeting.

The Blue’s are still keen to keep hold of him as they believe he will come good and his poor form was mainly due to back injury. Additionally, they are unlikely to sell him unless they make a huge profit by selling him.
