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.
