Morata offered Chelsea escape route

Alvaro Morata has been offered an escape route from his Chelsea hell by former club Juventus according to reports today.

The Real Madrid academy product moved to the Italian giants in 2014, where he enjoyed a fruitful time in Serie A, scoring 27 goals in 93 appearances for the Bianconeri. His goalscoring form in Turin prompted Real Madrid to activate a clause in his contract which allowed them to re-sign him in a cut price deal.

However he was unable to make himself a regular starter for Los Blancos, and after just one year back in the Spanish capital, he was on the move again, making a £58 million move to Chelsea.

Despite a promising start to his first full season in the Premier League, it has turned into somewhat of a disappointment for Morata, who has scored just 11 league goals for the Blues.

He has suffered with a number of injuries and lengthy goal droughts with many speculating that he is not used to playing so regularly as the main striker.

However, he could be about to end his Stamford Bridge nightmare with The Sun reporting that Juventus have made an offer to re-sign the 25-year-old.

They claim that the Italian champions have made an offer to sign the striker on a three-year loan deal with an obligation to buy for a total fee of £52.8 million, spread into three installations.

After the first 12 months, Juventus would pay £8.8m, followed by payments of £17.6m and £26.4m in the subsequent two years, with him officially being a Juventus player in 2021.

The deal would be similar to that which sees Juan Cuadrado officially join the Italians from Chelsea this summer, having been on loan since 2015.
