Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are reacting to reports that one of their strikers may leave the club in the summer after struggling to make a massive impact in his first season in SW6.
Alvaro Morata has been a lonely figure up front in the Chelsea team, ever since his summer move to the Blues, much to the frustration of our regular Blues in the bar. Indeed, his old club Juventus want their striker back according to reports.
The Spaniard enjoyed a successful period in Italy when he was on loan there from Real Madrid for two years – where he picked up back-to-back Serie A titles and looked to have found his footballing home. However, since then a move to London materialised for the striker and it goes without saying, he has found the Premier League a tough challenge to take.
Early signs seemed to suggest he’d be a huge hit but in recent times he looks as if it’s all got on top of him… the substitution reaction summed it up on Thursday against Burnley.
With that in mind, our landlord takes a look at if Morata was to return to the Old Lady this summer, which TWO players would follow right behind him out of the Stamford Bridge exit door…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
