Alvaro Morata could leave Chelsea at the end of this season after a £ 65m move from Real Madrid to Stamford Bridge that happened only last summer.

A return to Italy could be on the cards for the Spaniard, who is married with an Italian model that he met during his spell at Juventus: the couple would love to return to Morata’s wife country, with their twins expected to be born in the end of this spring.

The Spanish striker scored 27 goals in 93 games during a three-year spell in Turin before heading back to Real Madrid in 2016 and then on to the Blues a year later.

But after a mixed first year in west London, where Morata partially failed to reach expectations, Juventus have approached Chelsea about bringing back the striker to Serie A, according to Italian outlet Corriere dello Sport.

After playing my father used to coach, we used to follow him around Spain. We used to travel with him to many cities. 24 hours a day football was a topic at home. I’ve always loved to play the game.”
