Unveiled: Chelsea affix a price tag of £15.5million for Alvaro Morata

According to a report from AS (h/t Daily Mail), Atletico Madrid have to pay £15.5million to keep Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

The Spaniard moved to La Liga on a season-long loan from Stamford Bridge.

Unlike his previous seasons with the Blues, the Spaniard finally sussed out his worrying form as he contributed a lot to help Diego Simeone’s side finish second in the table.

The 26-year-old has notched up a 7-goal haul in just 14 appearances that include some stunners in the process.

Now, it is revealed that Atletico have to splurge £15.5million to make Morata’s stay permanent.

Morata’s transfer a blow for the Blues?

Gonzalo Higuain was recruited by Maurizio Sarri to fill the striker’s void on a temporary basis.

The Argentine striker alongside Olivier Giroud didn’t make good use of the opportunities as he really showed clear signs of rustiness.
