Chelsea FC would contemplate selling Alvaro Morata to Juventus in the summer, according to a report in the English media.

The Telegraph, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Spain international could be offloaded less than 12 months after his big-money move to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea FC signed Morata in a £65m deal from La Liga giants Real Madrid last summer after the Blues missed out on Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

The same article states that Chelsea FC are facing a headache about what to do with the Spain international following a decent but unspectacular debut season.

The Blues board are reported to be confident that Morata will come good in his second season in the Premier League.

However, the story goes on to suggest that some members of the Chelsea FC squad are genuinely worried that Morata felt more comfortable in Madrid and Turn rather than London.

Morata has scored 11 times and has made six assists in 26 appearances in the Premier League this season.

The Spanish forward has been unable to fire Chelsea FC to a second successive Premier League title.

In fact, the Blues are in fifth place and 10 points adrift of Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur.
