Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata appeared to have grown frustrated with life at Stamford Bridge and is prepared to take a hefty pay-cut to return to Juventus according to report.

The striker spent two seasons with the Bianconeri, but Real Madrid activated their buyback clause in the summer of 2016.

The Spanish global was then sold to Chelsea, but it has been reported in recent days that he could return to Turin, after struggling to settle in England.

Michy Batshuayi, who played the second half of the season on loan at Dortmund, is said to be their top target, but Chelsea's Morata is also believed to be on their wish list.

The Blues haven't qualified for the Champions League, and it's thought that could help the Bianconeri in their pursuit of their former player.

However, given that their total outlay on Morata was around €75m, Chelsea will not sell him for less than €60m.

Juve are planning an expensive loan, with an obligation to buy for around €50m, which would be payable in instalments.

Although it'll be hard to persuade Chelsea, Morata's desire to leave the club and return to Juventus could see a deal go ahead.

"However, the Blues could face competition from record-breakers Manchester City who are valued at 3/1 to add the Argentina global to their trophy-laden squad, while Manchester United follow just behind at 4/1 to become the 30-year-old's destination this summer".
