International Transfers

Official: Chelsea Flop Completes LaLiga Return

Chelsea's second most expensive player ever, who failed to live up to expectations with the Premier League giants, has now been signed by LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid in one of the biggest transfer deals of the window so far.
 
 
Atletico have secured the services of out-of-favour Blues striker Alvaro Morata on a loan deal, with an option to make the deal permanent at a reported fee of £48.5 million (R867 million).
 
Morata reportedly agreed personal terms with Diego Simeone's club last week, and is said to be willing to take a pay cut from his usual wage of £120 000 (R2.1 million) a week in a bid to make his stay in Spain a permanent one.
 
The Rojiblancos are understood to have paid an initial fee in the region of £3 million (R53.7 million) to secure Morata's services until the end of the season.
 
 
The forward struggled to make the desired impact at Chelsea since arriving in London as Diego Costa's replacement, who moved to Atletico at the time.
 
 
With nine goals in 24 appearances across all competitions this season and only 11 strikes in his debut campaign, Morata has failed to justify the staggering the £60 million (R1 billion) transfer fee the club forked out for his services in July 2017.
 
Do you think Higuain will solve Chelsea's goalscoring problems in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments section below.
