Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata has joined Spanish club Atletico Madrid on loan until the end of the 2019-20 season. The twenty-six-year-old joined Chelsea from Real Madrid in July 2017 for a then club-record fee of sixty million pounds on a five-year contract.
He has made 47 Premier League appearances for the Blues, scoring 16 times. Morata played for Atletico as a youngster before joining Real Madrid. He had a medical in Spain on Sunday. The move comes after Chelsea signed Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain on loan last week.
