Chelsea are set to undergo significant changes this summer after failing to qualify for the Champions League and it could result in some high-profile departures.

Club-record signing Alvaro Morata has struggled for consistency at Stamford Bridge since his arrival from Real Madrid last summer, particularly in the second-half of the campaign, and speculation suggests he could be sold.

Morata’s former employers Juventus, where he enjoyed a successful two-year stint, have been widely linked with the signature of the Spain ace and¬†Marca¬†now report he’s met with representatives from the Italian champions.

It’s stated that Chelsea are ready to take a financial hit with Morata’s departure but Juventus would still struggle to finance a deal, with reports previously stating the Serie A champions will eye a loan deal similar to what they had with Juan Cuadrado.

However, Chelsea would prefer a permanent sale as they look to finance their own activity in the transfer market and appease some of their biggest players, including Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.
