Alvaro Morata has passed his medical ahead of a proposed loan move from Chelsea to Atletico Madrid today (Sunday), according to Sky Sports.
The loan is apparently set to cost the La Liga side £9 million, and the deal will include an option to buy that they will be able to activate in the summer for £48.5 million.
Morata started his career at Real Madrid and spent five years with Atletico’s city rivals before moving to Juventus in 2014. The deal, however, included a buy-back clause which Real exercised two years later. After just one season back, they sold him to Chelsea, and it’s fair to say that he failed to impress in the Premier League.
He has been linked with a move away from the club which secured the signing of Gonzalo Higuain on loan for the rest of the season, and a return to the Spanish capital is now very close for the 26-year-old striker.
