Alvaro Morata Is ‘Pushing For Juventus Return’ With Chelsea Willing To Negotiate Over His Departure

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is eager to secure a move back to Juventus this summer

Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is determined to secure a return to Juventus this summer, according to Italian reports.

The Italian side, who are closing in on winning the Double, are eager to bring Morata back to the club, where he enjoyed a successful spell between 2014 and 2016.

Tuttosport report that Juventus appears to be Morata’s most likely destination if he is to leave Chelsea, with the Premier League club willing to negotiate over a possible move.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Morata but he is understood to favour a move to Juventus.

Morata joined Chelsea from Real Madrid last summer for a club-record fee of £58million and made a superb start, scoring seven times in his first eight games.

Since then, however, Morata has endured some difficult periods, which included a run of 13 games without finding the net between the end of December and the beginning of April.

With Olivier Giroud having joined Chelsea in January, Morata faces competition for a regular starting berth and could find more joy back in Juventus, where he could replace Mario Mandzukic, who may leave the club this summer.

During his time at Juventus, Morata scored 27 goals in 93 appearances and won two Serie A titles, two Coppa Italias and the Supercoppa Italiana.
