Reports: Former Club In Talks With Chelsea Over Alvaro Morata Return
One of Alvaro Morata's former clubs are reportedly in talks with Chelsea in a bid to re-sign the Spain international at the end of the season.
The Spaniard, who cost the Blues about £60 million (R1.02 billion) at the beginning of this campaign, has failed to set the Premier League alight since his move from Real Madrid, and there are rumours he is struggling with life in London.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Italian giants Juventus have made contact with the Stamford Bridge side and are hoping that they can lure Morata back to Turin in the coming months.
Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri is believed to be on the hunt for a new forward to replace Mario Mandzukic, who has been linked with a move to China or Turkey.
It has been suggested that Juventus have also reached out to Paris Saint-Germain to enquire about striker Edinson Cavani, but the Ligue 1 side are believed to be unwilling to part with their No. 9 just yet.
Morata, 25, is rumoured to be the Serie A side's main target for next season, and is still a fan favourite at the club after scoring 27 goals in 93 appearances during his previous spell there.
However, with Antonio Conte expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season, the Spaniard's future in London could depend on the new Chelsea boss who comes in.
Morata has made 41 appearances for the Blues so far this season, scoring 14 goals across all competitions.
